the crack epidemic was a deliberate genocide of black americans by the US federal government. calling people "crackhead" as an insult is unbelievably fucked up because that is 100% racialized and classed. crack carries a MUCH heftier sentence than cocaine. i WILL be tearing into you if i see you using crackhead as an insult like this is tumblr and there are no rules. this is your only warning.

drug addiction needs to be understood as an assault on the working class by capitalism. joking about it is fucked up and i will not tolerate people who do this. addicts are people.

@wintgenstein i mean, IMO it's just a straight up exploitation of people BY people. Pushers don't care about who they hurt, they reject their humanity in favour of their own personal gain. That goes beyond politics, that's just? Big fucking a n g e r y when it comes to human decency.

@wintgenstein also for the record there's no such thing as a "crack baby" that was also a racialized fear-mongering campaign, babies who's parents smoked crack have grown up to be mostly fine
