  1. Refer to the primary speakers throughout the documentary by their name. "what were the speakers strengths and weaknesses" "what did you like & dislike" "what was surprising, or what did you wish was different"

  2. During regan member the Tom cruise movie about being a drug pilot

    Nixon was the worst for creating DEA regan did mandatory sentences

  3. And for your actions, the leftists have committed an unforgivable crime. All woke leftists shall be removed from Europe and America. No one shall love them nor forgive them. The white man's hold on America will stay firmly tight. All will be right, there will be nothing to fight.

    And everyone you love goes to hell forever and ceases to be. Along with you.

    All that you hate happens. And all that you hate is good. All that you hate wins. And all that you hate is loved by all.

    Every harm against you and your ancestors is blessed and good. All that you are is undone. And all you get is punishment.

    All your love dies. All that you have is taken. And all that you hate kills you.

  4. Nixon was a Federal criminal & racist, just as his entire administration was. That comedy club we call the FBI, the police, all colluded against blacks and anyone with long hair or who protested the war. Just like Bush and all the administrations since have tried to make us feel anti American if we didn't support the "war on terror". Or the slaughter of thousands of Iraqi citizens when all but one 9/11 terrorist was a Saudi. It was actually a Federal offense to be caught with (1) joint back then and prison for several years was the norm. However, there was no law against driving drunk and killing people. And for you young people, don't ever think cops or the National Guard won't shoot and murder you for protesting or standing up for your rights just as they did at Kent State.

  5. You’re not supposed to be criminalized, if you don’t break laws. However, a criminal living in a high crime area & people can be, regardless of skin color.-

  6. "The white liberal differs from the white conservative in only one way that he is more deceitful.
    Both parties want Power!, But the liberal has perfected the art of posing as the Negro's friend and benefactor. In this game of using the american negro,
    the white liberals have the cooperation of the negro civil rights leaders who sell our people out for crumbs of token gains ,token recognition and token progress" – Malcolm X
    Black People are completely on their own and trapped. Any time a leader props up, S/he WILL be dealt with. 50:08

  7. I plead to you all to look at the history of slavery. It has been an economic system since time began. This time in America it is used as a divisive force. Rather than build compassion and tolerance the DEI push is doing the opposite.

  8. I don't curse the guilty or the blind but I do stand on an state this … Nations round about the people of Yah need to repent and return what was stolen heal the people in which you have destroyed or face the consequences of eternal judgement, As we speak this nation is crumbling as well as all the authors of it, The time is quickening an his return nears an he is angry with this Corporate Egyptian Nation an he will destroy it all by 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  9. Yup..out of control is right . Wedlock kids , government raising litters yep outta control indeed. Car jackings , home invasions , robberies , every day a grisly newscast starts like this etc . . . .

  10. Thanks for this . Thanks to all the humans that have assisted blk folk fighting this system. May you and your families be blessed and showered with prosperity…. Amen 🙏🏿

  11. Incredible documentary, I learned a ton. But I feel like it is disingenuous to discuss anti crime movements without ever mentioning the worst of crimes: homicide. Rape is mentioned extensively, but homicide almost never. They mention some black people, specifically oder ones supported the crime bills. Why? Homicides, not drugs. Their own boys dying due to violence which is extremely higher in these areas mentioned in the great migration such as Harlem or Compton. A tragedy which can easily be argued to be a partial by product of the war on drugs and the extremely high rates of fatherlessness which are limited to a single sentence in the entire documentary despite it being one of the primary causes for crime, gangs etc. And it's a statistic that no matter the race will increase rates of crime such as homicide, are etc… for example 80% of convicted rapists grew up without a father in their lives. Not mentioning these things is disengenious and bordering on manipulative Netflix. 

    Many crimes such as the crack vs normal cocaine were made up from thin air. And these crimes that can be exaggerated and framed with ease systemically are all you mention. Creating an aura that all of these incarcerations and crimes are due to narratives and systems alone. But when you bring crimes such as homicide into the picture the narrative you present is shown to need a bit more nuance than what is presented within this documentary. And it takes a hit on its genuine educational value which is sacrificed for presenting a more clear cut, black and white narrative.

  12. Am black and standing your ground is not racist, it goes both ways black and white. It sometimes help black people defending them selfs against racism arm groups

  13. The system of the beast, the system of the devil! It camouflage its self in religious costumes while carrying out the agenda of the devil!

  14. We have a criminal justice system that treats you better if you are rich and guilty, than if you are poor and innocent.
    Wealth, not culpability, shapes outcomes.
    -Bryan Stevenson
    Such truth, spoken so eloquently.

  15. I will NEVER understand how the color of your skin can change people's perspective of you. You are human no matter what you look like, sound like, walk like, dress like. Everyone is different, however, all of us are the same. We all have hearts, brains, blood, bones, ligaments, eyes, etc. So what makes people of color so different? That is something that I will never understand.
