Racial Repression And The Murder Of Michael Brown

AFRICANGLOBE - Few who heard the eyewitness accounts of the murder of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson needed an autopsy report to know that Mr. Brown was gunned down in cold blood.

The systematic nature in which Black youth are harassed, intimidated, incarcerated and assassinated perpetuates the historic repression of American Blacks from the barbaric founding of the U.S. in slavery and genocide to supposed resolution with the Civil Rights movement. This is to state that any of these murders might be considered individually but the aggregation paints a clear picture of systematic racial repression.

Ferguson: No Justice In The American Police State – A Must...

AFRICANGLOBE - Today Americans have no more protection against state violence than Germans had under National Socialism. Far from being a “light unto the world,” America is descending into cold hard tyranny. The “land of the free” looks like a Gestapo Nazi state.

Gun control should be applied to the police who lack sufficient intelligence and judgment to go around armed.
