About this deal
Just as white people are portrayed as seeking drugs in urban areas, so too drug dealers from urban areas are portrayed as infiltrating white communities. Chief among these in media coverage of drug use are “urban” – code for black or Latino - and “suburban” (and sometimes “rural”) – code for white. The idea that whites who use drugs are squandering their privilege and putting their status at risk has also been noted in analyses of both stoner films and of the reality TV show, Intervention. Health reform may be opening a window for more deliberate work against the racialization of clinical practice.
In this way, media coverage of the suburban and rural opioid “epidemic” of the 2000s helped to draw a symbolic, and then a legal, distinction between (urban) heroin addiction and (suburban and rural) prescription opioid addiction (even after its progression to heroin addiction) that is reminiscent of the legal distinction between crack cocaine and powder cocaine of the 1980s-90s ( Felner 2009). It is not only that white drug problems are constructed as new and surprising; they also receive a kind of consideration, details, backstory, and exposition absent from stories about black and Latino communities.An example of an organization of advocates for treatment of addiction as a public health problem rather than a racially bifurcated law enforcement issue is Punishment to Public Health ( http://johnjay.
This distinction reinforces the racialized deployment of the War on Drugs and is sustained by the lack of explicit discussion of race in the service of “color blind ideology. Accounts of how white people became addicted to opioids generally fell into three categories: 1) young people start using the prescription medications of their parents or grandparents; 2) the person “fell in with a bad crowd,” and 3) the person was prescribed pain killers for an illness or injury and then became addicted to them. As a Denver Post story pointed out: “it's a white problem now” an African American woman notes, adding that “if it weren't, the camera crew wouldn't be here” ( Ostrow 2001).
