That collectivization does not work with millions of people would be of no surprise to those who were on the receiving end of the collectivist schemes of the past (and present). Take the Soviet Union for instance. Stalin's collectivization program caused a famine which led to the needless deaths of between 5 and 14 million people, mostly in Ukraine which contains the most fertile soil on the planet . People were forced onto collective farms for the good of society, and made to meet a...

True slavery has existed longer than freeedom. In fact, slavery have been HERE in the world since the beginning of time-which includes EVERYBODY....Europeans too. But! The difference in African slavery I see opposed to others who have been enslaved are the facts that we were/are the ONLY ones targeted and specificially taken from our lands for sole purposes of profit and sex.

At the end of the day, how can legalizing weed benefit Black people in anyway?? That is my own thoughts regarding questioning this legal marijuana movement. The state governments will regulate it so tightly that most of us wouldn't even be able to comply within reason and they will still drag our black asses to jail. A no win situation for us. IMO.
