FYI this is incorrect. It's not true to say that the Clinton (and Biden) law created the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine and that it was Trump that reformed it.And who pushed the Crime bill (1994 I believe) under Clinton, that resulted in more black incarceration than ever before? Joe Biden. It made it law that 5g of Crack cocaine resulted in more incarceration than powder cocaine. And what one is peddled on the street more by your 1st level distributor? 5g Crack, which then resulted in massive incarcerations for black Americans but all the other pushers stayed out of the spotlight because small amounts of 5g Crack was never going to be sold at the high levels.
And who pushed to reform it? Trump
Trump's backing for the package, which is still being drafted in the Senate, has been seen as a key factor in providing political cover for Republicans and Democrats to vote for the overhaul.www.nbcnews.com
Also, every economic indicator for African Americans decreased under Obama.
If you have the time, listen to the Moefactz podcast I linked. Good info on the history of the Crime bill but it's many theme is about the Biden you ain't black episode from just over a week ago. Cheers.Political compromise. The same unfortunate reason we end up with all sorts of strange laws and regulations.
Must be a lot of jobs making rubber bulletsUS unemployment falls from 21+% to 13.5%, 2.5 million jobs have been added, good stuff!
Biden might be able to move from his basement after election day straight into the White House bunker.It’s funny that the Democrats have refused to do an extensive interview for Biden like the one just Trump did. They can’t hide him in the basement forever.
