#ICantBreathe: America’s Rising or Setting Sun?

Posted on Updated on

Too Big To FailStaten Island Choke-hold or Cleveland bullets, we need rise above the darkness of political and corporate conservatives, for it is their greed for power that feeds racism, rape and poverty – keeping us in our place.

Armed only with the wisdom of Gandhi and courage of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, rise up in peaceful protest and following the money, honor the dead, remembering…

  • Effective action is taking our non-violent protests to the doorways and bank accounts of Corporatism
  • Deny your money to K and Wall Street people behind the culling of you, they deem dispensable
  • Boycott, not bullets defeat money power that needs a controlled citizenry.

Racism is not limited to white police and black youth, any more than rape is about sex.  Both are products of need for superiority, a fear of equality, diversity, informed thinking voters, and even educated consumers.

Let there be Light:  All Life Matters!

Women matter.  Black & brown lives matter.  The life of planet earth and all life upon it matters.

The lives of school teacher Ibolya Ryan in Abu Dhabi and 33 year old journalist Luke Somers mattered, both murdered because they personified a potential and promise that clashed with local religious perceptions and conservative beliefs.

Let there be Light:  In America conservatives jeer at border children, throw chicken and beer bottles before a peaceful multi-racial procession from Ferguson to Jefferson City, because Conservatives can’t imagine the light is for anyone less pink than they.

Let there be Light:  What is past is prologue for those who simply will not be color blind enough to see, reliving our past, drives us into our current events, dangerously propelling us into a future replete with repetitive violence:  racism, rape and police state sanctioned murder – funded by mass quantities of undisclosed political campaign contributions to insure a specific return:  super conservative wealth corrupts by destabilizing the Middle Class and corralling the poor in poverty — and it all matters!

Let there be Light:  The Great Recession was manufactured, to increase the divide between the haves and have-nots, and this kind of darkness can snuff out the light of our nation and the potential of our humanity, as quickly as a villainous group of law enforcers force the very breath of life out of a fellow human being.

Let there be Light:  The enemy of 99% of Americans is not each other.  Red vs. Blue is mass manipulation, as Open Carry is but a NRA tool and rogue police Conservatism’s foot soldiers – whose goal is as old as Biblical testament and as new as the last unarmed person murdered.

Detroit Water CorporatismBoth Ferguson and videoed choke holding are products of a few billionaires using Conservative Media, compromised Judges, Right Wing Governors and a K Street corrupted Congress, dominated by Conservatives who hate governing as much as they are complicit in the demise of the wellbeing of the citizens they are elected to preserve, protect and defend.

Let there be Light:  The motivation of shadows bankrolling the Conservative Republican agenda, is not the patriotism of our Founding Fathers, and certainly does not reflect the sacrifice of millions of Americans on battlefields, in classrooms, working multiple jobs – nor does it define the vast number of first responders, who ran toward the targets of 9/11, not to kill civilians, but to save them.

Let there be Light:  Most teachers, firefighters and police, choose to serve to educate us about, and protect us from, people like Timothy Loehmann, Darren Wilson, George Zimmerman and yes, Wayne LaPierre and even Pat Lynch.

To claim all police are like the four who beat Rodney King, is as ignorant as, all black people are cop killers — but not indicting when we have video proof of murder by chokehold suggests we are thought, easily duped.

Let there be Light:  Every person’s death, rape, denial of equal economic opportunity, affordable healthcare and a superior education without financial burden, diminishes us as a nation.

Knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own, let us lie down in the green pastures of The Street, for when we know our enemy as ourselves, there will be Light!Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
