African-Americans and Crack

It’s not a secret that the crack epidemic disproportionately affected poor African-American communities in the ‘80s and ‘90s. There is a widespread belief that the U.S. government placed crack in Black communities to lessen its political power and fragment us even more. However, there isn’t concrete proof to prove that to be true.
