Three Wilmington, North Carolina police officers were fired after the police department learned about their violent racist remarks. Click on the following link for the story: https://youtu.be/0HveFM0Npz0
The statutes that are being toppled all over the world are because many of us are ashamed that our present civilization was created out of the genocide of indigenous people. But there are those who glorify that history, and want to preserve the status quo.
The institutionalized racism benefits 1% of the people. They are the only ones who have become even richer during this pandemic, while the rest of us have become poorer. The United States (US) government (USG) represent only that 1%.
The USG refuses to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism, to decolonize Puerto Rico. The USG has ignored 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
One of the police officers talked about the need of another civil war to kill off all the Blacks. That is indicative of how entrenched racism exists in the US. It would equally take a revolution to create a government for the 100% of the citizens.
We will need all people of good will to make that happen, because those who kill people because of their race, don’t want LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! http://www.todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
I can’t wait for a better world for everyone!
