Ferguson is not just about systemic racism—it's about class warfare, and how America's poor are held back

ill the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, be a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice, or will it be a minor footnote in some future grad student’s thesis on Civil Unrest in the Early Twenty-First Century?

You probably have heard of the Kent State shootings: on May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard opened fire on student protesters at Kent State University. During those 13 seconds of gunfire, four students were killed and nine were wounded, one of whom was permanently paralyzed. The shock and outcry resulted in a nationwide strike of 4 million students that closed more than 450 campuses. Five days after the shooting, 100,000 protestors gathered in Washington, D.C. And the nation’s youth was energetically mobilized to end the Vietnam War, racism, sexism, and mindless faith in the political establishment.

Screw the media narrative. The blacks are emboldened by Obama and Holder to rape, riot, burn, rob, and murder.

We can't expect that blacks to act white, so I guess all the whites are just going to have to act black.

We'll see how well that works out.

KAJ is barking up the wrong tree here.

The “poor” are helping themselves to ever increasing amounts of the working mans cash courtesy of marxist politicians.

They need to be stopped by all means necessary.

Class war is a 2-way street.

If we even acted like they “say” we act, they wouldn’t be out in the streets rioting and looting. If we were as bad as they say, the riot would last 5 minutes and carting the bodies off would last a few days. Money to rebuild neighborhoods would not be forthcoming and they would rebuild with what wasn’t destroyed.
My fear is acting like they act will lead to genocide. And I don’t won’t to see us act like that.

Ferguson is not just about systemic racism—it's about class warfare, and how America's poor are held back

Feh ...

Ferguson, and other similar riots, are about the Parasite Class trying to destroy the Productive Class ... and the Protective Class failing to do its job.

Ultimately, this will lead to the Productive Class protecting itself ... and the Parasite Class will not survive the experience.
