    Anita Baker didn't sing about it, because crack wasn't the only thing happening in Black America in the 1980s.

    It was also a whole class of millions of Black Baby Boomers that were in their 20s and 30s that grew up in the Civil Rights era, that were witnessing going from Jim Crow to middle class lifestyles of integration (for good or bad), and were having children, buying new homes in suburbs, getting well paid professional jobs, even factory jobs and trades, but seeing and acquiring some additional levels of the fruits of America (for what it's worth).

    Anita wasn't singing about crack epidemic.
    She was singing a soundtrack for hope and love.

    Didn't mean crack wasn't taking tolls, but it wasn't the full the story of 1980s Black America.

    Sad thing is 30, 40 years later, the same neighborhoods and cities that were under siege are now being gentrified. Same hell holds that were being looked down on at the time by the same middle, upper class folks in their suburbs are now populated with their offspring thinking they're cool living in those same spots. Some of these folks moving into these spots literally mocking that shyt. It's cool for them to emulate the struggle without being in it because they can move back to the burbs when they feel like it. shyt is sickening. Those areas are haunted. Imagine if those psychics performed mediums and the energies they'd feel from all those that died in those areas and we talking about hundreds and thousands of murder victims because of crack and the drug trade. Folks wanna move in to be around that type of haunted energy? That shyt never goes away. shyt never feels right.


    Also shows you how the government works. They create those conditions and used that shyt to war with the people. How many black people done got locked up. Crime bills of 1988, mandatory minimums, school zone laws, and etc etc. 40 years later, yall see the opioid shyt.

    shyt was rough back then. I used to see folks walking down the street with microwaves and TVs in shopping carts, burnt spoons in hallways. My aunts and uncles would dissapear for days and leave my cousins at my house just to get high.

    The violence from the drugs didn't really hit me until I was 8 or when these guys shot up the corner shoot I was buying my sandwich from. This guy that used to give me money for going to the store and getting good grade got hit in the face. Then like 3 months later he got arrested for a murder.

    Teenage years was the worst because the gang violence increased that's when most of my friends were getting killed.

    But now its phasing out, most of the fiends died years ago. You barely see crackheads. It's the opioid addicts now. Young kids like 17 and 18 popping percs. shyt is crazy.

    Absolutely, I always tell people on and offline that in the 80's and 90's you got the entire wellspring of the black experience

    I will say though, that this world didn't really become commonly known until hip hop exposed it

    All the way in the south, i'd have never seen these news reports and articles in JET magazine didn't really paint the full picture
