Isn't this one of the biggest problems in our nation?
Hate, anger, and violence rule this world.
Everything we've done as a nation has failed to solve this.
I think we're doing everything wrong.

Think about how hard it is to have family unity when cultural behaviors are criminalized. Men are extracted from the home and placed into prisons where they are kind of forced to make choices. Meanwhile, back home, the family is being raised in public housing, along side gang members, felons, and sex offenders.
How, exactly, should people find success in that situation? I mean, the extraordinary people likely can. And a few lucky people who manage to stumble into something better. But isolated in project housing, in areas where no businesses really operate and access to the networking the rest of the world has access to is non-existant. How do you succeed when the most successful person you know is slinging dope?

I think most drug laws are ridiculous.
But other than those laws, what part of black culture do you feel is being criminalized that shouldn't be?
