Discussions:

Yes some will argue that the slaves weren’t freed, and that legally every one in the US was made in to slave post civil war.

War on drugs was a Regan initiative, well really he just expanded it more.

furthermore most of the prison population are in the same places that held the largest populations of slaves pre civil war.
