Most common Drugs used
Drugs have always affected the black community and as i result i wanted to research how it as come to be a major epimedic throughout the black community.
Several sites have proven that the first funnel of drugs into the black community began in 1974. Which was the birth of Crack in the black community, The CIA and the DEA started funneling drugs into the black community during the Regan administration to help them fund the Contra's in Nicaragua. This led to the rise of several well known drug dealers such as Rick Ross, Danilo Blandon. Often times trains would run into the south central neighborhoods and stop, when children looked into the trains there was several Weapons which they would steal and bring back into there neighborhoods. Centuries of drugs and the dehumanization of black people have led to high poverty and prison rates for the black man.

I chose these two political cartoons because i thought they were relevant to the issues that we face in todays society. Many people are losing there jobs and are facing home foreclosure and have to resort to either living in there cars or sleeping in homeless shelters. I thought that these cartoons make a big point to show how much work and challenges President elect Barack Obama has ahead of him, such as cleaning up the mess that Bush left behind such as the Failing economy and having to bail out the big car companies. It also shows how many billion dollar industries are forced to cut back on products and resort to cheaper ways of production to save money such as buying hybrid cars.
