No Justice, No Peace!
Is anyone else tired of more empty calls for “justice” and quiet candle-lit
The people of Ferguson, MO are taking to the streets because they (and I) want a visible expression of exasperation, anger, and frustration that makes obvious that they are finished with these racist routines:
- The routines of violence against people of color
- The routines of quietly shaking our heads at these tragedies
- The routines of asking for change
It is time to destroy what destroys us. We need an end to the White Supremacist Capitalist Patriarchy that keeps us quiet? How many women must be assaulted or raped, and how many black kids shot before something actually changes in this country?
