MSNBC Host: “If I Were Black With Cornrows Instead Of White With Glasses, My Azz Would’ve Been In The Back Of A Cop Car!” [Video]

Sincerely, Chris Hayes (MNBC)



Last night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used pot to highlight the racial nature of the "War on Drugs." He talked about the time he almost got arrested at one of the most high-security areas in the country for having pot in his bag.
Hayes was panicked at the time and expected to be arrested, but not only did he not get in trouble, but the officer handed him his weed bag and sent him on his merry way. In retrospect, Hayes said the officer probably thought he was related to a politician and didn’t want to piss off any powerful people, and Hayes found that to speak volumes about the true crime of the War on Drugs.
“I can tell you as sure as I’m sitting here before you that if I was a black kid with cornrows instead of a white kid with glasses, my ass would’ve been in the back of a squad car faster than you can say George W. Bush.”
Hayes showed statistics illustrating how blacks and whites smoke marijuana at roughly the same rates, but black pot smokers are arrested on a much higher bases. Read the whole story HERE.
