Manufacturer Description

Race is evidently a element in govt efforts to control unsafe medicines, but the specific ways that race affects drug rules continue to be difficult to pinpoint. Illuminating this elusive romantic relationship, Unequal below Regulation lays out how years of the two manifest and latent racism served form a punitive U.S. drug policy whose onerous affect on racial minorities has been willfully dismissed by Congress and the courts.

Doris Marie Provine’s engaging evaluation traces the history of race in anti-drug efforts from the temperance movement of the early 1900s to the crack scare of the late twentieth century, showing how campaigns to criminalize drug use have often conjured images of feared minorities. Explaining how alarm more than a threatening black drug trade fueled assistance in the eighties for a necessary minimum sentencing scheme of unprecedented severity, Provine contends that whilst our drug rules may possibly no longer be racist by design and style, they continue to be racist in design and style. Additionally, their racial origins have prolonged been dismissed by every department of govt. This unsafe denial threatens our constitutional promise of equal safety of regulation and mutes a much-necessary national dialogue about institutionalized racism—a dialogue that Unequal below Regulation guarantees to initiate.
