Ferguson is not just about systemic racismit'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 students 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 nations youth was energetically mobilized to end the Vietnam War, racism, sexism, and mindless faith in the political establishment.

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.
The media should be considered combatants.
"what's your vector, Victor?"
This country is on the verge of anarchy. Don’t give up your weapons.
so, blacks hold blacks back and whites are to blame.
got it muslim convert kareem.
We may get to play rioters and rednecks yet.We’ll see how that works out.
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.
Animals acting like animals.
Yeah, like, I really need a lecture from Lew Alcindor.
And guess whose side they are on. (rhetorical)
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.
By Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
A black multi, multi millionaire explains why America is a white racist country holding the black man down.
What will make this all fizzle out is a store security video which will be shameful condemming evidence making it a likely open and shut case.
I grew up dirt poor. Never once did anyone in my family ever think of taking something that didn’t belong to us.
The problem is the “everyone has to be equal” crap.
This will precede the regime declaring marshal law and coming for our guns.
That HAS to have come from "box-person."
Please see post number 20. Thank-you!
So Kareem, with all the money you’ve made over the years, how much have YOU invested in the “Community”?
If one wants respect, then one must be respectful and then earn respect.
If one wants to 'get ahead in this world and not be held back', then one gets up in the morning, gets a job (regardless what it is or what it pays).
One also is on the job, rain or shine, every day, no matter how one feels.
Know this, employers don't care what one's color is as long as one does the job and earns their pay.
That is how one gets ahead and is not held back.
All of these blacks who say they are being held back wouldn't be held back if they did the above.
Not going to happen.
Vietnamese that could not even speak a word of English have come to the USA and made a good life for themselves. Plenty of Asians come here and do very well. We have so many from India that come here and do well. So many Latinos come here and work hard and do well too.
For some reason, blacks, overall, haven’t succeeded. Maybe Lew can give us the excuses?
4 million little leftists played hooky? How did we survive? What did they do instead? Go home and eat their parents' groceries?
No, they would not rebuild with what wasn't destroyed. They wouldn't re-build, because they did not build in the first place. They moved in. Instead, they would sit in squalor ... or try to take their orgy of looting and burning (and worse) beyond their destroyed neighborhood.
That would end badly.
Poor Asians arrive in America and thrive.
Jamaicans will BRAG about how many jobs they have in order to pay off their homes early.
Even Poor Mexicans arrive into this country and within a generation, are business owners in mostly white neighborhoods.
Perhaps Blacks are not successful due to DNA/intelligence rather that perceived white racism or class warfare.
Africa is a mess. While whites where putting a man on the moon, Africans were STILL whizzing in their water supply.
The media should be considered combatants.
I guess you can honestly say this is Obama and the Democrats “Hope and Change”. Obama and the democrats failed the poor
Read the whole editorial...he ain’t stupid and at least some rational thought is present. He’s purely a lib as he made sure to slam Fox news. That said he doesn’t see that libs are the racist ones keeping blacks shackled and dependent to the government plantation and even their masters who many are black government workers ‘help’ them be successful and get all the government programs...meanwhile, libs get away with their deep caring persona.
Not to mention a Muzzie who hates America, the Great Satan.
Is Lew issuing a threat?
What really needs to happen is the ‘have nots’ need to become the ‘do somethings’. The Fundamentals of how to create value need to be taught.
So be it.Blood will run in the street then.
The author is retarded.
amazing.. this from a hugely wealthy guy..nutt’n against him ... happy for his fortunes. he worked hard for it.
I have no money... I have no retirement.. and I’ll be damned if I blame anyone but myself for not planning ahead better..
I am so sick of all this... we are headed towards communism it seems to me... reminds me an awful lot of what happened in France in the 1790s....the “rights of man” and all that crap..
the rights of some lazy f*cking stupid fools,to get access to other peoples money.. money of those that freaking planned, saved... and worked hard, and utlimately made good choices in life.
sick to death of this sh*t...sick to death of these bleeping slugs of flesh, that spend their nights either getting high or drunk or just simply eating and watching television, and then wondering why they don’t have money.... and some other guy has money, and it’s because he worked his ass of for it.
and they feel they have a right to his money.
liberty... choices.....America.... that’s what I believe in.. not freaking skin color or class warfare.
Not even hardly. At this point the riots and "message" have a life of their own. Brown's actions are a subtitle, at best.
If people honestly and truly want the looting and violence to stop, send out a couple of sharpshooters. One or two well-aimed hits on these thugs is all it would take to restore "peace." Of course nobody has the gonads for that.
To me, he writes like he’s an angry Muslim.
He was raised as a Roman Catholic and attended Power Memorial Academy, a Catholic high school in Manhattan. In the summer of 1968, while attending UCLA, he took the Shahada twice and converted to Sunni Islam.
Here, from Wikipedia...
Abdul-Jabbar had been interested in coaching since his retirement, and given the influence he had on the league, he thought that the opportunity would present itself. However, during his playing years, Abdul-Jabbar had developed a reputation of being introverted and sullen. He did not speak to the press, leading to the impression that he disliked them.
In his biography My Life, Magic Johnson recalls instances when Abdul-Jabbar brushed him off when Magic (as a ball boy) asked for his autograph, Abdul-Jabbar froze out reporters who gave him a too enthusiastic handshake or even hugged him, and refused to stop reading the newspaper while giving an interview.
Many basketball observers, in addition to Abdul-Jabbar, believe that Kareem’s reticence, whether through disdain for the press corps or simply because of introversion, contributed to the dearth of coaching opportunities offered to Abdul-Jabbar by the NBA. In his words, he said he had a mindset he could not overcome, and proceeded through his career oblivious to the effect his reticence may have had on his coaching prospects in the future.
Abdul-Jabbar said: “I didn’t understand that I also had affected people that way and that’s what it was all about. I always saw it like they were trying to pry. I was way too suspicious and I paid a price for it.”
KAJ seems to me, in this article, you are that same “disdain” and not just for the press corps. Seems like he still has that mindset he can’t overcome.
One of the richest persons in the world EVER...
some breeds of dogs are smarter than others....some breeds of birds are smarter than others...some breeds of ...ummm...just sayin.
Restoration of the military draft.
Hey, Lew- black on black crime far outweighs your white on black argument...and if you are concerned about the diminishing middle class, you need to have that discussion with your lord and savior, Obama. In the meantime, stick to co-pilot duities and don’t have the fish, otherwise Otto will take your job.
You’re welcome to watch to whole thing, but at approx 4:39 is where it gets relevant.
