7. Richard Branson talks war on drugs and race
Billionaire Richard Brandon has pulled the race card in America’s war on drugs. Richard, who is a member of the Global Commission on Drug Policy, thinks that there are racist practices at work when it comes to drug policy in the U.S.
“The fundamental difference in America, is that it is a war against black people in America. It’s black people … 85 percent of people who go to prison for drug use in America are black people," he said during a recent Metro interview. "They don’t take more drugs, but it’s a racist law against black people in America."
