Clearly there are people in academia who have read SRBJ vol 2 and possibly read or even reread vol 1. Its strangely interesting to see more and more work done in the academy that treats subjects in both vols as uncredited inspirations for inquiry. Perhaps people should again reconsider why the works of Karl Marx is considered (albeit less so today) off limits to read or discuss openly.

The White Man March is a job for the white Evangelicals and white Christian’s nation wide who claim Jesus loves all his children. Lets see if the white Christian community will respond to these rabid racists in a manner that’s consistent with their Biblical teachings. Or will the white Christian community respond historically condoning racism through aggregate collective silence while preaching love for thy brother!

But this raises the next psychological issue. Why is gold or silver valuable? There is gold dissolved in sea water. What would happen if someone came up with a cheap way of extracting it? Install some device on every ocean going vessel and it extracted gold while it moved across the sea. We could have inflation based on gold.

That is not the reason voting turnout is low, it's because voting did not matter, rank and file Americans know they are being pandered to, lied to and then in no way shape or form being represented.

Black people are just born to be used and abused by everyone else on the planet in any they so choose. The dark skin and hair of wool just gets them a life-long ass whipping. They scare everybody and everybody HATES them including hatred from each other, so it seems. Doesn't seem they're capable of defending themselves from anyone including each other.
