"Outrage in Charleston - This IS America" by Carl Dix"The blood of the nine people murdered in Charleston is on the hands of the rulers of this country. Whether this guy acted alone or not, he was acting within a climate that has been deliberately whipped up. White supremacy has been ingrained in the fabric of America from its very beginning. This country was founded on theft of land from and genocide inflicted on the native inhabitants and the dragging of millions of Africans to these shores in slave chains. And white supremacy remains at the heart of this society right down to today....
"The crocodile tears being shed by those who preside over the brutality and murder this system inflicts on people are worse than useless. It will take revolution, nothing less, to uproot white supremacy and end the oppression of Black people and all the other horrors this system inflicts on humanity. If you want to see these horrors stopped, there is a movement you can get with, a movement for revolution that the Revolutionary Communist Party is building. To get information and to join in dealing with the questions and obstacles this revolution faces, go to the website: www.revcom.us."
Read the full statement here.
Join us this Wednesday evening to discuss what is required of us all now. Can there be healing and forgiveness if the deep wounds of white supremacy are not exposed? Or do we need more determined resistance against all the attacks aimed at Black and Brown people in this country as part of gathering strength for the day that an actual revolution is possible?
