A mere two months after clashes between black youth and police in Baltimore following the murder of Freddie Gray while in police custody, President Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the indictment of twenty-four year old Raymon Carter for his alleged involvement in the torching of a CVS pharmacy. The national government’s intervention into the case had an unmistakable message – if you engage in “unauthorized” forms of resistance – in this case, crimes against property – expect to confront the full power of the national government.
"I'm here from the US government. I'm here to help. It's got a gun to my back. Do what I say or it shoots me so as to better be able to draw a bead on you. Get it?"

The caption under the above picture of the bombs dropping on Libya is wrong.
It should read:
With strong U.S. backing, NATO forces bombed Libya in 2011 in order to oust Muammar Gaddafi from changing Libya's oil bourse from petro-dollars to Gold Dinars.
"One day using that same logic but informed by an alternative ethical framework that centers real justice, the people will be in a position to hunt down and bring to justice the international colonial gangsters who destroy our earth, torture, exploit and bring death to countless millions."
I long for that day.
THIS is the nexus of power in the current world system:
"On that ultimate objective both corporate parties share an interest in shifting public attention away from state policies and actions that demonstrate the state’s absolute commitment to the principle of “by any means necessary” for maintaining and advancing the interests of the White supremacist, patriarchal, colonial/capitalist order."
And what it means is that those of us--Black, women who do not identify with white male rules or ideology, Latinos, and many of the poorest persons--are not part of the "us," or "We" that is code for WHAT the dominant powers do without our consent!
