One thought on “Take Action this Weekend to Remember Mike Brown & the Ferguson Uprising

  1. The struggle continues first to remind ourselves as a people particularly those of us who have assimilated the racist idea that black lives don’t matter that in fact our lives do matter as human beings. Secondarily, the struggle continues not to convince others that our lives matter but to demonstrate through organization and dignity that the rest of humanity should accept that our lives matter.

    I believe that this is one way to honor and show respect to the life of Mike Brown and all the other brothers and sisters whose lives have been cut short by racist thugs in uniforms all across America.

    Bob Marley says it well to all white supremacists in his song ” War”—” —-until the philosophy that holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned , everywhere there will be war, war, war and rumors of wars.”

    These words of Marley should be a rallying cry to all of us who are burning with freedom not only to remove the symbols of white supremacy but to more importantly end the structures of racism and the capitalism system that not only anchors it but sustains it in dividing and ruling working class people of all races.

    RIP Mike Brown!

    The struggle continues to end racism!
