This is the story of the beginnings of Blaxploitation. This is also the story of, perhaps, the biggest "pusherman" in your life - and the drug he is selling you: white gold, also known as sucrose, processed and refined sugar. This is, too, the story of the Dominican sugar plantations in the Caribbean - and the slave labor camps that keep workers in a perpetual state of poverty, so that Americans (and others) can indulge their sweet tooth 24/7.
