I removed my recent post titled “War Declared Upon Us All”, which is my thoroughly explored perspective regarding a key trigger of racism within the United States.
Accidentally, I erroneously wrote Brianna Taylor, instead of Breonna Taylor (that link goes to the Wikipedia entry about her horribly tragic death), because I was unintentionally tricked by a quick search upon her name to (ironically, as it turns out) responsibly ensure that I spelled it correctly.
That search strongly promoted Brianna Taylor, who is a mainstream artist.
As anyone posting here at wordpress.com understands, the writing editor has been dramatically changed, so simply correctly updating her name became impossible.
Simply going to edit that post revealed a nightmarish formatting mess that could not be quickly remedied, so that is why I removed the post outright.
This post serves to help me adapt to the new editor, and I exercise this post to offer my sincerest apology to anyone offended by my inability to properly initially state Breonna Taylor’s name correctly.
I feel fittingly ashamed, especially upon considering the key significance of expressing the names of people who have been horribly destroyed by thuggish “policing”.
Given the fact that John Ehrlichman (a top aide to president Richard Nixon) explicitly stated that a major reason for the Nixon administration’s launch of the War on Drugs was to ruin black communities, and given the fact that arrest statistics show a largely disproportionate amount of black people are incarcerated as a result of that perpetual war to this very day, one can only sensibly conclude that the War on Drugs is at least a major system of sustaining the evils of racism in America.
There cannot be any true police reform, until society understands the fact that there is literally no concretely proven public benefit from the War on Drugs, while there is a mountain of demonstrable costs — including countless non-rights-infringing lives being unacceptably ruined, many billions of taxpayer dollars spent yearly, and the continued destruction from ample drug abuse due to the “righteous” thug-imposed delusion that thuggery with a badge is the right solution.
Drug abuse, which is scientifically distinct from drug use, and occurs in the overwhelming minority of drug intake instances, based upon the whole truth and nothing but, is clearly a health — not criminal — issue by any exercise of intelligence and civility.
Unless tragedy intercedes, I will post the revised “War Declared Upon Us All” next year on July 2, and consequently annually with any necessary revision, until the public finally stands rightfully firm against the War on Drugs — i.e. the War on Black People.
