tamorapierce: yellow sign showing figure banging head on desk (Default)
This article, by Henry A. Giroux of Truthout, sums up what is going wrong in America far better than I can: police violence against Black people, the militarization of our police, the escape of financiers and the wealthy from a tax burden carried by the rest of us, the passiveness of the white American to police brutality, the devaluing of Black lives in general. It's a disturbing article, but well worth reading.

Why is there no mass outcry against police murder of Black citizens? Is white America ashamed of our people of color, or just lazy? This isn't the country of the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. Law has become corrupt, and we are plunging into a future of constant warfare. When will people wake up?
