Eugene Jarecki's documentary on the drug war, "The House I Live In," won a top award at Sundance in 2012. Here Jarecki talks about some things he learned while making the film. Among them: 90% of crack arrestees--but only 13% of crack users--are Black. Drug laws, always a means of race control, are now also a means of class control, with poor whites increasingly targeted. And the original "War on Drugs"--launched by Nixon in 1971--devoted 2/3 of its budget to treatment programs.
Jarecki's remarks are taken from an interview by Michael Slate, broadcast on "The Michael Slate Show" on KPFK, Los Angeles. The hour-long program is available here: . Many thanks for permission to rebroadcast. More from Slate at .
