It has called for the establishment of “unjustly harsh” mandatory minimum sentencing laws, and it has done the exact opposite of its original intended purpose. It has not helped the American people it has crippled them, it has crippled our economy, and it has been straining our police departments with dealing with nonviolent drug crimes. The War on Drugs has been a failure to the American people for its effect on Blacks, its creation of unjust sentencing laws, and its inability to achieve what it was meant

“America is safe, it is the land of opportunity” A place where we will not be surrounded by rusty barbed wire, which kills more dreams than the civil war in Burma. But I already renounce this thorn-bush as home “I don’t want to go” said seven-year old me with my face crinkled up and my eyes squinted looking directly into my father’s eyes. The moment I said those words I wanted to breathe them back in like oxygen. His dark brown eyes seems darker than ever like a polluted night sky without a single star.

In the 1920s all these rights were nowhere in sight, as for African Americans were still discriminated, immigrants were not trusted, and government officials decided what Americans would or wouldn 't drink.
