- Lacked Objectivity on some Issues 1/11/2021 12:00:00 AM by royhectorkabanlit
It initially was pretty good, but I thought it ended up pushing too much of an Agenda on the issue of the Contra Deal. Yes, the CIA did sold Arms to Iran to fund buy Weapons for the Contras which allowed Drug deliveries from Nicaragua to the US, but it was not by far the main source of Cocaine for Crack in the US.
Saying so or making it look like it just meant too much bias to make People think a certain way about an issue. The Documentary also did not discuss too much the Scientific aspects of Crack, like what its physical effects on People, etc.
- devoid of the real issues 1/11/2021 12:00:00 AM by elwood187
Basically what we see is an hour and a half of poorly organized archive footage blaming white people for struggles in the black community. We also see former users and former drug dealers not taking responsibility for their poor actions and decisions that ruined the lives of many people, even the white ones that weren't mentioned. By the end you get the feeling that their is an agenda being placed on the viewer.

You'd do well to avoid, particularly given there is so much better out there on Netflix on similar topics.
- Lets Blame White People 1/11/2021 12:00:00 AM by mafiawarsaddict
This movie is poorly done and it is a NETFLIX slop of a film blaming white people for the inner city drug problem. Seriously even the drug dealer do not take responsibility. So to save everyone time. Open Credits, Blame White people, end credits. And they say Trump is the issue. WOKE cannot make anything.
- A woke story of victimhood 1/11/2021 12:00:00 AM by andrewnelson_98
This documentary has some good events to highlight about how crack was capitalised by inner city dealers why middle and upper class consumed cocaine and other drugs. The issue is, everyone they interview simply blames racism for it, not culture. They blame the US with its massive borders for not stopping it coning in, blaming the CIA for allowing it in and the poluce for not cracking down on it ruining the lives of inner city people, and finally when the police clamp down on dealers and implement harsh sentences for crack they blame the government for locking away the very dealers and users they were campaigning to address. Its a prime example of woke society, unable to accept responsibility for the choices you make and using racism as an excuse for taking personal and social responsibility to address problems. I genuinely felt admiration for so e of the speakers , when someone admits their life is ruined by what THEY did like one of them said I really felt for them, its just a shame the rest are too busy placing blame than accepting reality and consequences of those who commit crime.
