Actress revamps famous ‘this is your brain on drugs’ ad into a dark, violent PSA that targets white people

It’s easy to argue that actress Rachael Leigh Cook is advocating for violence against white Americans for a perceived injustice in the so-called war on drugs.

Advancing the divisive politics of identity that now defines the left, Cook took part in a public service announcement that pushes a narrative that grew in popularity under former President Barack Obama, that drug users are not the problem in America as much as the government’s efforts to enforce drug laws is.

An effort marked by a racist criminal justice system, never mind the growing number of cities in America run almost entirely by African-Americans — Detroit and Baltimore being two prime examples.

The PSA is a play on the “This Is Your Brain on Drugs” commercial, featuring a brown egg and a white egg. The brown egg is unjustly held accountable for its actions — accountability being a dirty word to the left — while the eyes of justice look the other way for the white egg, which is all but rewarded for its drug use by a racist American society.

But the video takes a disturbing turn at the end, as Cook takes a frying pan and smashes a “family” of white eggs.

“This is how you feel!” she says angrily, while showing the remnants of the shattered eggs on the underside of the pan.

And make no mistake about it, the Drug Policy Alliance accepts this narrative, according to a statement from Tony Newman, director of media relations at the Drug Policy Alliance,

“It is gratifying and promising to see the evolution in Rachael Leigh Cook and in the American public over these last 20 years,” Newman said. “The war on drugs is a disastrous failure that has ruined millions of peoples’ lives, especially people of color. Let’s hope this ad is seen by as many people as the original and inspires folks to end this unwinnable war.”

Much like illegal immigration, the left’s answer to our problems seems to be to stop enforcing our racist laws.

The original ad, released in pre-Obama 1997, can be seen below … and while equally violent, the divisive racial element in nowhere to be seen:
