I think that it would be most helpful today to go back 55 years ago to analyze a debate on racism in the United States (US), and to evaluate how close the US has advanced in proving liberty and justice for all. Click on the following link to watch that video:
The fact of the matter is that the US government (USG) has always represented Whites. Therefore, the people protesting today against institutionalized racism need to understand that the solution lies in dismantling that fundamental structure itself. That will not be easy, because White supremacy is in the USG’s DNA. We will need to be smarter than the USG, because it will fight us all the way!
The USG has fought Puerto Ricans all the way for the past 121 years. The USG has ignored the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945. The USG has, moreover, 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/
In order to eradicate institutionalized racism, we must decolonized our minds from the racist education that we had been taught since birth as the universal truth. When we have detoxified our minds, we could then organize ourselves to permanently eliminate the USG’s institution of racism.
The key is learning unadulterated education, because those who have adulterated it to exploit us forever have never wanted LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
The fire of racism must be put out!
