I get suspicious whenever the Corporate Media and/or the Fed Gov't promote some idea...over & over & over. In this case, it's the supposed racial divide here in the USA. Yes, some people of all "races" are prejudiced; but I don't believe the problem is as massive as we're being told.
The current unrest is not primarily about Race. I'm sure there are some bad-apple racist cops; however, I suspect the following is mostly playing out worldwide--
Cops are much like soldiers: THEY HAVE ORDERS from higher up. The Oligarchy's
political corruption, economic & financial failures, empire hegemony, & intolerance of
democracy are no longer being tolerated by the People...who are demonstrating on a wide variety of fronts (racial, economic, environmental, immigration, incarceration/prison reform,
political, police brutality, etc.). The Powers-That-Be are clamping down on all protests;
they no longer tolerate protests of any kind...be they group or individual. [Once in a great while, we see an exception
to that general statement.]
The Oligarchy is attempting to put "the little people", "the bewildered herd", "the ignorant masses", "the spectators" [all terms from a few "Liberals" and "Libertarians" of the past] in their place. This is a Class War of epic proportions...the monitoring of essentially everyone, a
crackdown on demonstrations, no tolerance for arguments from anyone, a massive transfer of wealth, white-collar criminality by the
Super-Rich, war for profit, privately-run prisons, privatization of public infrastructure & other
resources, a War on Cash, the hollowing-out of the Middle Class, and on & on.
As Warren Buffett said, "We are in a Class War in this country, and unfortunately, my class
is winning.". He's correct.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
