In the 16th century, the Spanish and Portuguese managed, without gas chambers or bombs, to slaughter 150 million Indians in Latin America . With axes! That's a lot of work, sister. Even if they had church support, it was an achievement. So much so that the Dutch, English, French, and later Americans followed their lead and butchered another 50 million. 200 million dead in all! The greatest massacre in history took place right here. And not the tiniest holocaust museum. The history of mankind is a history of horrors.

Remy Girard, Les Invasions Barbares, 2003, film

  

America is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "Beyond Vietnam : A Time to Break the

Silence," 1967

 

The Root, funded under the leadership of Harvard elite, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, declares the latest shooting too "difficult to understand" (June 8, 2012). The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, no friend to the Black struggle for revolutionary change and democracy, quoted the city's tough-on-crime mayor Tim Barrett who lost his bid to unseat Gov. Scott Walker. The mayor vows to "investigate" the police's response to the murder of 13-year old Darius Simmons.

 

The "difficult to understand" in the Black bourgeoisie media are being "investigated" by the local authorities. You can rest assure that this outbreak of violence is under control. Besides, we expect the posse of notable Black leaders to arrive in Milwaukee shortly--go shopping!

 

What happened? Another Black child is dead by yet another white man, this time, 75-year old John Henry Spooner, yielding a firearm. Unlike Trayvon Martin who was walking on the block were his father lived but just too near Zimmerman's home, Simmons was in front of his home taking out the garbage. His mother recently moved her family to the Southside neighborhood, a better neighborhood, she thought, safer neighborhood.
