Those of you who are genuinely opposed to injustice, regardless whether you think Blacks get a worse deal than Whites or vice versa, might like to set your emotions to one side for a moment and think about the following. The mass protests organised by Black Lives Matter are two steps removed from what should really become the focus of public outrage. Let’s take it one stage at a time:
1. The RACE issue is irrelevant because it has not been established that George Floyd was killed for racist motives and police violence is directed at people of all colours and creeds.
2. The POLICE are not the ultimate source of blame as they are mercenaries who are answerable to the State.
3. The SYSTEM is the real cause of blame and those in the banks, boardrooms and stock exchanges are using your taxes to fund the politicians, bureaucrats, soldiers and police who enforce tyranny on their behalf.
The idea that these career parasites are deliberately targetting one race more than another is ludicrous, we have all been slaves at one time or another and there is little difference between an African person who is transported on a slave-ship and the European who is hung for stealing a loaf of bread, forced to work underground in cramped conditions, abused in a brothel or confined to a mental institution.
The silence from controlled opposition movements like Black Lives Matter and Antifa on issues such as usury should be enough to remind you that nothing but the collapse of capitalism will free us from the imposition of financial enslavement and the token removal of statues or list of hollow ‘victories’ such as positive discrimination, political correctness, safe spaces, interfaith religion, kneeling at sporting events, wheelchair ramps and modified bathroom signs are purely reformist and the ruling class is more than happy to tolerate such things if it means keeping its hands on the wealth. The same goes for the reactionary Right, which heaps praise on capitalist leaders who tighten up on immigration or who utter a few religious platitudes and yet conveniently avoid the issue of capital. Let’s stop beating around the bush and start getting down to the nitty-gritty.
