The System is a multi-season drama series that revolves around "The War on Drugs” and its expansion into a middle-class suburban community. As a white father with mixed-race kids, I learned something I'd never experienced growing up. That is how the war on drugs targets minorities for prosecution. My sons and their black friends were getting stopped and searched while their white friends were being let off. I wanted to know why.
