You wanna see a REAL scandal?

You've heard, depending on your news choice, about the so-called scandals of the Obama Adminstration when it comes to Benghazi, the IRS, and investigating journalists.

If not, Google it!

In my opinion, each of those "scandals" has a reasonable explanation indicative of something other than bad blood or vindictiveness or achieving some political ideology.

Of course I could be wrong.

But here is a true scandal of the Obama Adminstration. In cities all over the nation, including New York, young black males are being rounded up for a relatively minor behavior that Obama himself engaged in on a regular basis as a younger man (smoking or possessing marijuana).

In this article from the New York Times titled "Blacks Are Singled Out for Marijuana Arrests, Federal Data Suggests," the story reports: "Black Americans were nearly four times as likely as whites to be arrested on charges of marijuana possession in 2010, even though the two groups used the drug at similar rates, according to new federal data."

So why is this not being treated as a scandal, even as we know that the drug war has been a massive failure and is having such destrimental effects on the least advantaged people in the country? And how come no one is all upset about it on Fox News?
