Nixon Aide Reportedly Admitted Drug War Was Meant To Target Black People … pulls back the curtain on the true motivation of the United States’ war on drugs. – Huffington Post
The Huffington Post article, excerpted above, blames the Nixon administration for the “war on drugs” and is based on a cover story in Harper’s magazine by Dan Baum.
Baum’s long article eventually makes the case for federal activism when it comes to reforming drug criminalization.
But both the HuffPo article and Baum’s extended analysis in Harper’s seem to make the distinction between a “good” kind of federal government and a “bad” one.
The Nixon, Republican kind is “bad.”
