"Forty more years of sonorous phrasings about responsibility, expectations, institutional racism, 'getting on board' and baggy pants?"

Every time I see one of these marches or forums covered as significant, what occurs to me is that there is one thing we should all be focused on instead. It is, of all things, the War on Drugs. The most meaningfully pro-black policy today would be a white-hot commitment to ending its idiocy.

-- John McWhorter, in a provocative and essay calling for an end to the War on Drugs.
