Who Ordered the Mexican Heroin?

Heroin use in the United States increased by nearly 80 percent between 2007 and 2012 alone, and The New York Times’ main reaction to this depressing fact is to be overjoyed that the new addicts are mostly white.

The important point is not that ragingly addictive drugs are sweeping small-town America, young lives are being cut short, or that we lost one of the most talented actors of his generation to a heroin overdose. What matters is that that the drug epidemic is not having a disparate impact.

    “The New York Times’ main reaction to this depressing fact is to be overjoyed that the new addicts are mostly white.”

    Sometimes I almost wish the white race, seemingly hated and reviled the world over, including by a large percentage of whites themselves, would just die off and be gone. (It will perhaps be bred out of existence in Europe in a couple of generations anyway.) Then the haters at places like the NYT and #BlackLivesMatter would at least have to find another target for their vitriol and bigotry.

    Why people are so curious on drugs in this century if I know that I will make my life shorter I wouldn’t try it no matter what .
