Decolonize the Racist Police State: #Ferguson
"The militarization of the police is not an aberration—it is the necessary condition of a society based on hierarchy and domination. It is not just the police that have been militarized, but our entire way of life. Anyone who does not see this is not living on the business end of the guns. These are the forces of peace and justice, the mechanisms that “keep the peace” in a dramatically imbalanced social order.”

I had the opportunity to attend Fred’s talk while I was in New York City this past year. He is a profound, beautiful thinker and incredible writer whose work inspires me in countless and ever-expanding ways. So happy to have found this.
