reject nobility

Now the major corporate media are trying to keep the discussion about racism away from systemic change. (Dare we say, "Revolution?") They are welcoming the upper class or upper class wannabes and their frustrations about not making it to the upper crust of society as the spokespersons for the movement because of their racial identity. One network rep even insisted that the dreams of the coloured and minorities should be about capitalism and their efforts to climb the ladder of capitalist success should not be unfairly dragged down by racial discrimination. Capitalism, I suppose he meant, should be the American dream. We should refrain from dreaming about a different future. I guess he was indicating he would not support any systemic change aimed at tearing down capitalist arrangements and building something different.

I feel empathy for any injured person. I feel empathy for anyone who suffers discrimination, including verbal or physical abuse or any kind of exclusion. However, I am not going to ride the bandwagon of anyone seeking to lord it over others. Hey, wasn't there a revolution in the US to get rid of monarchies and nobility? Memory is short, apparently, because there are many vying to become moguls of the financial or industrial world, sultans of culture and the aristocrats of academia and professional life. I do not support their causes. Well, if we looked deeply into American history we would probably find that many rebels were empire seekers themselves, wanting to be big landlords and captains of trade and commerce, despite their lack of blue blood and pedigree. How has that worked out? A lot of blood and exclusion, of Mexican, indigenous, immigrants, women and workers have toiled and shed blood and tears at their hands. So, I do not support the gal or guy whining that they could not get into an elitist school or get voted into a high position or get support for a big business plan. I do not support those who wish to perpetuate and contribute this system of plunder and exploitation. Sometimes, discrimination is a playing card in the game.

Why to the victims and oppressed of the imperialist system, especially the descendants of slaves or the raped women want to get into the exclusive clubs and halls of power in the heart of the beast? We can see the limitations of having a black president who can control the buttons, decide international relations and make laws. Lots of people died in the battlefields and in the streets under him. Having a woman President would be no different in tone, quality and substance. 

I support those engaged in class struggle for a new kend of society. I welcome and encourage democratic processes among peoples' organizations as they work together for a common cause, namely to end the system that thrives on lies, violence, inequality, and theft and create a new path forward.

Sissy Squat Machine;The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn't disappoint me as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, however I genuinely thought you would probably have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
