Like everyone else, I was surprised that Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. It’s one thing for me to believe that Cosby was treated unfairly by a racist criminal justice system. It’s quite another thing for the state’s highest court to say Cosby’s due process rights were violated. Read on @whyy

I listen to the topic discussion on “Safe Houses” Everyone knows we live in a racist country where blacks are consider to be one fifth of a man. We also know this country was not designed to protect us but to reject us. When blacks was smoking crack we were called, ” Crack heads” When the no color people started smoking it..they were called, “Substance Abusers” Same with the Heroin. Blacks were called, “Junkies and thrown in jail. Today people with no color are consider to be in their situation because of the doctors. And they want to create safe houses. Give me a break. Malcolm X peace be upon him, made a comment stating the roaster coming home to crow….( something like that) That’s what is happening. This epidemic is from the seeds planted by white America to destroy black America. But the reaping is falling on their children. I use to work with addicts and the majority of my clients are white young men and women from the county. They commit a crime and instead of going to prison they send them to treatment. My black clients went to jail for their drug related crime and receive a record. I believe those addicts should undergo the same treatment people of color had to endure during the crack era and the heroin era in the 60’s.
