The Drug Epidemic


The Drug Epidemic: The Crippling of the Black Community

The first portion of the discussion on The Black Community focuses on the drug epidemic and its impact on the Black Community.

The 3 Questions

1. Can a drug dealer be a positive role model?

2. How much is the drug epidemic to blame for problems in the Black Community?

3. Do you feel that some or all drugs should be legalized and if so which ones and why?


There have been movies, documentaries, books, articles, programs, and so much more dedicated to the topic of drugs and their impact on society as a whole.  More often than not, these mass media events focus their attention on Black America’s drug dealers and tough neighborhoods.  This subject encompasses so much more than how bad drugs are to just the individual, but how they can affect every aspect of life in certain communities.   How much is the drug epidemic to blame for the destruction of our community?

Please write in and respond to our 3 poll questions or post some questions that you would like to see discussed.  These questions and more were addressed on March 19, 2011 during our Roundtable conversation aired on YouTube.
