In A Police Materialist World, Might Is Right!

Nowadays, these numbers show that the American dream is a myth. There is less equality of opportunity in the United States today than there is in Europe -- or, indeed, in any advanced industrial country for which there are data.

Joseph Stiglitz, Truthout


In Memory of Trayvon Martin, Rakia Boyd, Ramarley Graham, Darius Simmons  



They take out the garbage, make up their beds, vacuum the living room, wash dishes, and baby sit siblings or neighbor's children, but they are not workers, and yet, they, too, are targets of the U.S. Empire's militarism.


Ever since these children were handed over to the "care" of institutions in exchange for "freedom" and "equality" they have been treated as commodities on the market. Ritalin, separate classrooms, infractions real and unreal normalizes these children. Career-minded teachers, indifferent school administrators, sociologist, and psychologist, in declarative sentences, point to difference and irreconcilable traits. Toxicity and contamination and more separation!  


Straight Fs or straight As, most no longer ask questions, no longer seem curious. They come to see, in this culture, violence as child's play.   Punch classmates in the face. Anger dwarfs into indifference. The desire to read and to write stomp on the ants, yanks the flowers, and some, embolden by an atmosphere equating ends at 4th grade, and is replaced with the desire make more money than Bill Gates.


Between vacations to the Grand Canyon and other wondrous our land, your land sites , with their children in blissful wonder, the creators of urban blight, speak disingenuously on the mystery of Black and Brown children in our glorious and fair-minded country. And they are paid well for their expertise on the matter. Some of the best minds work on the problem, day and night!
