    O.B.,

    Maybe appearing to be a gross over statement, I think you are correct to connect racial profiling with the dubious “War on Drugs.” It’s a waste of time to worry about where George Zimmerman’s motivations come from when the country sustains it’s hunger for free prison labor and sustains a culture of human enslavement. The documentaries do an excellent job of illustrating a practice that that isn’t covered anywhere in faux reality TV and the celebrity obsessed media.
