Must Read: Huffington Exposes War on People of Color

I hope Huffington’s sharp piece of reported opinion on America’s drug laws gets more play time. In "The war on drugs’ war on minorities: Democratic presidential candidates crave Latino and black vote, but ignore the Drug War’s unfair toll on people of color," Huffington argues that if presidential candidates want to impress communities of color, they should start by changing drug laws that result in 1. 4 million African American men not being able to vote and also 36,000 non-violent drug offenders trapped in California prisons.
