@jamesfrmphilly, no Brother we are not suppose to sit around waiting for someone white or black to come and kill us. We are supposed to live every day as each of us may. But living in a war zone mind set only plays into what the white fascists want. It keeps us on the defense and away of being on the offense. Don't play their game. We got our own.
@Kemetstry, if I put a person into the sights of gun it's not because I intend to talk..........and I don't pretend if another Black or white cat does the same towards me that I'm going to pull some movie magic and put him or her into the grave while I belly up to the bar.
@jamesfrmphilly, uh huh, I'm sure. Rather reminds me all that of what I heard after getting back from the war in 70. I got a close friend that got back about the same time and we were comparing notes from, uh uh ya know, the good ole days. He handled that kind of vague revolutionary BS better than I did. He said he listened, took a drink and a toke and said 'yeh give me a call after you defeat the first wave of the 9th air born devision.'
@jamesfrmphilly, but that's my question, how? While I'm with you on the broad institutional structure we live under, I'm still lost on exactly what you propose. How do we or anyone in Amerika for that matter protect themselves from some lone person going postal? (now that term is a blast from the past) Remember Tim what's his name and Oklahoma bombing? He took down half a building and didn't give a schit who was inside. That this particular incident involved our black community that little turd is only a piece of dandruff from a much larger issue. An issue that is not likely linked to guns per se or to the fielding of an army with some vague outline of, to defend ourselves.
@jamesfrmphilly, so where do we build that wall? What camp do we circle the wagons around? Who is excluded and who isn't? What is a trespass and what isn't. Do we frisk every white person we meet? When do the weapons come out? Once the first shot is fired it's too late someone dies.
@Kemetstry, this society is insane. Has been heading to this point for a long time. Remember.........mass killings have been going on for a long time in this here US of A. First one I can remember is from a tower on the campus of Texas A&M. 'They' kill where ever, elementary schools, theaters, music festivals, places of work, queer bars, backyard BBQs, their own families. It doesn't matter. This Amerikan culture is completely and has been insane and drives it's citizens to the same. Why anyone would actually actually want to integrate into it has always puzzled me.
