The C.I.A. covertly funded military operations in Nicaragua in the 1980’s; in part using money from cocaine sales out of Nicaragua. These covert government activities substantially contributed to the ‘crack cocaine epidemic’ in urban America. The subsequent effect was that black incarceration was systematized and monetized.
