Racism: colonialism, hate and genocide
Genocide marks the birth of the United States.
American colonial conquest was all about racism.
“Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.”
Now a crude, unlearned, racist, misogynist and hate-monger sits in the White House. He is selling unprovoked wars for profit and hate, and thinks we will allow his depravity and insanity to continue.
“It is not a small thing that President Obama claimed the right to murder anyone, anywhere, any time for any reason or without providing any reason at all. A more pressing issue is that Obama exercised this “right of kings” to murder innocent Americans who committed no crime, and now Trump has climbed on the Murder, Inc. bandwagon.
The United States government has militarized police bureaus and the U. S. Supreme court has indicated that these brown-shirts in blue with badges are allowed to kill thousands of innocents at home. Our so-called leaders export terror, munitions and unnecessary wars: spending trillions to murder millions for billionaires, munitions cartels and war-profiteers in unprovoked aggression for extraction, exploitation and extortion. This is rank treason and must not stand.
The victims in these American attacks are mostly people of color. White racism sits in the Oval office and it is time to clean house.
