Last fall, DRCNet reported on the decimation by drug warriors of the African American community of Tulia, Texas. A new, 23-minute documentary by the William Moses Kunstler Fund for Racial Justice provides a shocking look at the Tulia drug sting, proof positive of the racism inherent in America's drug war. More than ten percent of the African Americans in this small town were arrested in a drug sting conducted by a single undercover officer with no corroborating evidence.
