We must understand that the drugs in the Black community are no accident. It is something that was very planned and programmed to bring about our downfall. These drugs, like guns, are not brought into the Black community by Blacks like many of us are lead to believe. It is dumped into our communities by a  Racist system that has always wanted to see us either dead or in cages. As stated above, “We don’t own any planes or ships.” Why do you introduce Drugs into the Black community? It allows you to once again “legally” enslave Black folks through some bullshit propaganda of a Drug War that sends us to prison; the biggest business in Amerikkka. It also destroys Black families and greatly reduces the Black population; all major aims of White Supremacy. We cannot be fooled into believing these things are brought into our communities by us. They dump these things into our neighborhoods and then sit back as if they did nothing wrong. We must realize what is going on in order to be able to combat it effectively.

A Chicago man landed himself in jail when he thought slapping a 79-year-old Black judge twice and yelling “Rosa Parks, move” would get her out of his way. David Nicosia, 55, has been accused of committing a hate crime against Judge Arnette Hubbard for attacking her July 14, while she smoked outside the Daley Center in Chicago.

Nicosia, a business owner, was allegedly upset that the judge was smoking near him, authorities said. The two began arguing and Nicosia, who is white, stepped to her, yelled “Rosa Parks, move,” and spit on her. As he walked away, Hubbard followed him and called for assistance.

That didn’t stop Nicosia, who spit on Hubbard and slapped her for a second time. Law enforcement stepped in, arrested Nicosia, and charged him with
four counts of aggravated battery and a hate crime. Judge James Brown ordered Nicosia held on $90,000 bail Tuesday.
