Savant's Views

The problem is with the police as an INSTITUTION. At one time Batimore's polic were overwhelmingly white. Now about half are Black, but the police operate in pretty much the way as they did when I was a kid and cops were maybe 90% white. Remember that in apartheid South Africa in the mid to late1980s it was estimate that up to 30% (or more) of the cops were Black, but that didn't make the police less brutal over there. Black cops don't necessarily make police less brutal over here either. The entire SYSTEM must be change.

Greetings, Sioux sister. How are you? Do you know a colleague quoted an alleged Trump comment from a 1998 edition of PEOPLE Magazine in which Trump said that if he ever wanted to run for President he'd choose the Republican Party because that party has the dumbest and most gullible voters? I'm trying to track down that article.

Yeah, white guys like Dylan Roof killing 9 unarmed people in their own church is much braver. White men gunning down 12 year old Tamir Rice were very brave. Whites cops ganging up on Eric Garner and killing him was very brave, and also brave when they shot Amadou Diallo multiple times in the fact, and when one shot Mr. Scott several times in the down in South Carolina. But I wonder: Is Monika just play acting, just pretending to be stupid? Or perhaps it's not an act.

If you are ashamed of being black, then this shame reveals your inferiority complex. It reveals your slave mentality, your mental colonialism. First of all, it was TWO Black men who slew those cops. If you think BLACK PEOPLE are cowardly as a group, that tells me that you have the problem. I should also point out that cops killing black people--even unarmed women and children, is not exactly a manifestation of courage. And while I do not support the idea of killing cops--what we really need is a popular movement to end racism, exploitation and police terrorism--it could be argued that if it actually came to the point that the police had to be faced militarily, it would not be cowardly but INTELLIGENT to use guerilla tactics against a military force more well equipped and numerous than your own forces. Such tactics were used in America's 1776 revolution, and in numerous revolutions and underground resistance movements throughout the world. But what we need a popular social movement of liberation. Armed Struggle, if it comes to that, ought to be the LAST recourse.
