I’m sorry but I get more and more disgusted with this whole thing every day. Don’t get me wrong. I am behind people who are yelling against this Nazis and racist shit 100%. They need to be shouted down, put in their place and now. This will die down though and then what? What bothers me about this, is these same people who are all fucking kum ba yah right now, many are the same people who are fighting against prison reform, use terms like welfare scum, vote against school levies in minorities neighborhood, and have no real sympathy for the poor in this country, most of who are people of color. Put your money where your mouth is.
Just today a black man was thrown in prison. His crime, leaving his children alone while he went to work. Where’s Mom? Sick with stage 4 cancer. Can you imagine the choice for this man? Do I leave my eight year old in charge of her siblings and risk what could happen, or do I lose my job and have no home, food, or medical care for my wife and kids? Which would you choose? How does throwing this man in jail help anyone or serve any kind of justice? The walk of solidarity coming up needs to be the beginning of real change, not just a feel good rally so we can pat ourselves on the back and say oh look what good Americans we are. Fucking prove it.
The Dems and Reps are two sides to the same coin and no real change is going to happen until we have a viable third party. Both are equally responsible for the mess we are in now. We need to vote out all those in Washington ( and state and local government) who have been working for big corporations instead of the people. We are this country, we make the laws, we are their employers, we hire them to speak for us, have people forgotten this?
