ugh--do we HAVE to? Damn, can't we get something greenlighted that doesn't focus on something that destroyed our community?

@9:25
The truth needs to come out. Our government sold dope in our communities and locked us up. A little crack got more time than a kilo of powder.
Yes, this story needs to be told.

^^^I concur with your viewpoint--I just hope that THAT'S the angle they take it in.

Good point, 9:25.

Are they going to talk about:

- The CIA using cocaine to fund the Iran Contra Affair?

- The CIA reportedly using Barry Seal and other assets to get the drugs into the country?

- The alleged party houses set up all over the country in urban communities and funded by the CIA to use prostitutes to "offer" drugs to young people in the black community? ("The first time is always free.")

- The LAPD Rampart Division and the alleged drug running and money laundering that went on under Daryl Gates?

That allegedly the Rodney King story was a distraction?

- Did anyone know the LA Times was going to do a huge story with sources on the Rampart Divisions' alleged misdeeds then, but the story got killed due to the riots?)

- The alleged money laundering that large movie studios did for drug cartels and white/Persian families in the 80s in LA?

- That Robert Evans was the only one that got caught because he was allegedly set up to be the fall guy

- That coke money allegedly helped fund 2 of LA's sports teams. "Doctor's" families are still enjoying the proceeds from those fund today?

- That allegedly many buildings in Southeast, East LA and parts of West Hollywood were purchased as a means to launder coke money, high insurance policies were taken out on them, then the owners made a killing when the buildings burned during the riots?

A bunch of dudes in the hood have nothing on the REAL drug dealers.

^^^Word...this is 9:25; thank you for breaking it up and down. This is what needs to be told, for real.

9:42 this is 9:39. I'm just tired of this narrative that cocaine just "appeared" in Black urban areas in the 80s when drugs laws were being redrafted in the late 70s in anticipation of the crack epidemic.

Black folks have nothing on the real drug dealers. "Drug Bust Finds 400 Kilos Of Cocaine On The Hilton Family Ranch In Costa Rica"

9:53 I appreciate that Snitch gives us the forum and for informed people like you who know the history. So much of history is hidden in plain sight and glossed over with the incessant lies we're told about Black folks.

@9:39 Rhetorical question but who are you? You did a similar write up when they said they were doing a movie about Death Row Records.. You are on it.

9:39 I live in LA and work in the media. What people don't realize if you don't live here is that this is a small town with one industry, so everybody knows everything I wrote. It's all common knowledge. I wouldn't want to know any inside info...

^^^Sorry, I meant to direct that to 10:06. I don't want to hog the thread so I'll say no more. I will say the the tea I love/am scared of the most on RWS is "Fairy Godmother." She's also in LA and those posts make me lock my door and turn on all the lights. Scarily accurate.

---lol. Why don't yall just make a profile and stop calling each other by the time of the day?

10:26 - For anonymity. RWS is the only forum I post on because I don't need a profile here. Again, I work in the media and need my privacy. Sometimes I need to get things off my chest and appreciate that I can do so semi-privately. (It's often easier to vent to strangers.)

The Industry is racist, but what industry isn't? It's been good to me in a lot of ways but everybody needs to vent sometimes.

@9:34 and you think Fox/Murdoch is the platform that is going to tell the truth?! LMAO

These devils have tried to destroy us every which way they can. That's why when I see a black crackhead I don't just see a drug addict, I see the results of the evil that was placed upon us.
I don't think they will show and tell the 100% truth though......not those conniving devils.
