Never forget that class solidarity is the only thing that's going to save us as a people.

It's not Biden, it's not some other Republican 4 years down the road. The only people who can save us is ourselves.

We really need to unite and have a good ol fashioned general labor strike.
I'm going to leave this right here.

Do you ever notice how the media constantly race baits?

Do you ever notice how people in the upper middle class think they are better than the homies in the hood or Cletus in the park yet on the economic scale they are brothers compared to Jeff Bezos.

The media wants to paint Class Privilege as white Privilege.

When you race bait , you divide. Divided people are easier to conquer

You realize that both class privilege and white privilege aren't mutually exclusive, and can coexist right?

Ask yourself

While Large Corporations say they support Black Lives Matter as a virtue signal ... why do they have such an atrocious labour rights?


Why does Nike/large corporations fly the black lives matter flag wagging their finger at people meanwhile they do business with China who actively suppresses peoples human rights? At the heart of it Black lives Matter is a human rights issue.

Why do people get "cancelled" yet large corporations can just dance around it

Are you saying Uyghur Muslims humans right don't

Oh thats right its empty virtue signaling that doesn't cost them shit

So you should read about the African Americans who went to the Soviet Union and their experiences. While they did go to a country that was largely devoid of systemic racism at the time, the white americans who also went to the Soviet Union to work brought racism with them.

What I'm saying is: Black Lives Matter isn't a "virtue signal." There are real issues surrounding race and how racism is treated and addressed around the world. This isn't an either / or statement.

You have to be careful when condemning capitalism (Nike labor exploitation), so as to not condemn a very real thing such as race issues.

Racism is real. Class warfare is real. These things can and do co-exist.
