"I know that Bobby got Whitney on drugs. She was a good girl before she met him!"That's what they say.
Well, for all the rumormongers who declared without any evidence that Bobby Brown introduced Whitney Houston to drugs, this information provided by Whitney's brother may be shocking, but for the wide awake, it really means nothing.
In the interview on Oprah's Next Chapter, Michael Houston admits he felt "responsible" for introducing her to drugs and she was doing drugs well before she met Bobby. Well, it may not make Michael feel any better, but the reality is that it was never Bobby nor Michael that is to blame for Whitney's drug use. Ultimately, she was to take responsibility for herself.
There is a bigger picture that we must never lose sight of and that's the fact that drugs were made accessible and available in our community and to those in the entertainment world.
That's by design. There was an influx of drugs into the Black community during the height of the civil rights movement and another influx during the rise of "conscious" hip hop so don't beat yourself up too much Brother Michael. The devil made you do it.
In a move that is sending shock waves through both parties, a group of Black republicans led by former U.S. Congressman J.C. Watts have formed the "We Miss Clinton" support group.
"This may surprise many of our friends and enemies, but we miss Clinton because in many ways, he was more republican that I was," said J.C. Watts during a press conference announcing the groups launch. "He was like a heroin addict that leans, but never tips over. Clinton leaned to the right every time he signed a policy that as republican, I loved."
Explaining his point, Watts went on to analyze several Clinton policies that he said, "Bush wouldn’t have the balls to sign."
"Each month we will pour out a little liquor for Clinton’s signing of the Welfare law, for helping the Prison Industrial Complex increase the number of Black men incarcerated through crack/cocaine sentencing differences and for keeping the whole CIA/Cocaine/Contra thing quiet.
