Why We’re in a New Gilded Age by Paul Krugman ↘

I will be loud and vulgar and angry and me. So change your ways or shut your racist mouths. Use your liberal rationality to unlearn your contempt for me and my people, or shut your racist mouths.

I am not going to eat myself up inside anymore. I am not going to eat myself up inside anymore. I am not going to eat myself up inside anymore.

I am going to eat you.

Rosario Morales, I am the Reasonable One (1986)

I have no love for America. I have no patriotism … I desire to see the government overthrown as speedily as possible and its Constitution shivered in a thousand fragments.

— Frederick Douglass, declaimed in a lecture to the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1847 (via danielu92)


The Poverty Of Philosophy by Immortal Technique

Most of my Latino and black people who are struggling to get food, clothes and shelter in the hood are so concerned with that, that philosophising about freedom and socialist democracy is usually unfortunately beyond their rationale. They don’t realize that America can’t exist without separating them from their identity, because if we had some sense of who we really are, there’s no way in hell we’d allow this country to push it’s genocidal consensus on our homelands. This ignorance exists, but it can be destroyed.

They tell us that prisons are over-populated. But what if it was the population that was being over-imprisoned?
