The issue of police brutality has been broadcasted time and time again. We as a nation have been split along economic, professional, and congressional lines over the matter; and of course, racial lines. Ah yes, race, always the elephant in the room.Just this past homecoming, a black student was subject to over aggression by local Indiana law enforcement.
I went online and found research to show that black people drink more than they smoke. I also found that white people actually use more drugs than most people do. In fact, white people even drink more than black people do. They are the top race in the U.S. that drinks alcohol and are in second place when it comes to using drugs. This came as a shock to me because black people are often seen as the race that uses the most drugs and alcohol. The question I want answered is why black people are portrayed as alcoholics and drug addicts by society.
