Chaos in Ferguson. Sunday night, part 4
- no, this isn’t over;
- no, these aren’t from earlier in the week;
- no, everything isn’t alright now;
- no, the police haven’t stopped brutalizing peaceful protesters;
- no, police haven’t intervened to stop the looting;
- no, police haven’t responded to emergency 911 calls for people injured by rubber bullets or children hit by cars;
- no, michael brown’s shooter still has not faced any consequences for murdering an unarmed teenager 9 days ago
All this, except I don’t care who is looting.
The stars are right…
… with different degrees of struggles that we’re implemented by the pale skin via conquests using weapons such as warfare, religion indoctrination, and oppression. And then after pale skin set systems like this into our society, they go around and say things like “We are all human” and confuse “racism” with “prejudice” so that they can keep the system the same way for many years to come.
You totally missed the point of this, didn’t you?
That were all human? No. What you missed is that it’s a dismissive phase that a lot of people like to say at times to dismiss arguments like the one you clearly missed.
Some of us can’t afford to live on fantasy island.
The Pakistani women who make footballs for the World Cup earn a paltry $100 per month. [x]
At least they are employed
Many of them earn below $100. Many of them have families - often consisting of 5-7 individuals - that rely directly upon on the meager income they generate from this extremely demanding job so them being “at least employed” doesn’t protect them from any kind of economic and social precarity and it doesn’t shelter them from unemployment because labor here is cheap and readily available; the worker is dispensable to the employer/company. So the “at least employed” comment from you was not only stupid but very telling of your piss-poor understanding of wages. I understand many of you love football and will go as far as shoving it up your ass to show your dedication to it but the next time you decide opening your mouth about these workers, consider this noble thought instead: Shut the fuck up.
At last night’s opening ceremony of the World Cup, three children (presumedly representing Brazil’s “racial democracy”) released three white doves in an act symbolizing peace and harmony. But what the cameras didn’t show (because it’s literally illegal to protest during a FIFA event) is that as they walked off the field the empowered Guarani youth held up a banner calling for “demarcation” of indigenous lands (the federal state suspended these negotiations in 2013). Brazil’s indigenous peoples are currently engaged in a fierce battle to defend their homelands from predatory land owners and an encroaching state, both of which want to limit the territory of the country’s native groups and exploit their natural resources. You didn’t see his brave act on TV, but you can support his cause by liking and sharing this post and photo from the Yvyrupa Guarani Commission.
