Joe and Amy talk to Emmy winning director, Stanley Nelson about his new documentary: “Crack: Cocaine, Corruption and Conspiracy” on Netflix. The film examines the crack era of the 80’s and how crack fueled racial and economic inequality, the hyper-aggressive policing, the government and police corruption and the sentencing disparities between powdered cocaine and crack. We ask Nelson his thoughts on the “war on drugs”, defunding the police, the legalization of drugs, what white communities need to know and how we can start to heal the racial divide.
