SHOULD ONLY COPS HAVE GUNS? Alex Vitale explains “It is largely a liberal fantasy that the police exist to protect us from the bad guys.” He explains that racist suspect liberals project
“a fantasy of color blindness that says the police response is merely a professional technocratic response to where the crime is, but ignore the ways in which our society has been structured along racialized lines and the ways in which poverty in the United States is growing and becoming more entrenched. This includes a lot of white rural communities that are suffering from opioids and other kinds of crime problems.
Our political leaders have chosen to define those communities as criminal rather than as communities that are in deep distress because of entrenched joblessness, discrimination, geographic isolation, etc. If they were to admit that the problems in those communities were the result of market failures, rather than individual moral failures, then they would have to intervene in markets in ways that those who put them in office don’t want them to. To address the problems of inequality in any way other than policing is politically unacceptable in our current political environment.” [MORE]
Dr. Blynd plainly states, “People who are awake see cops as mercenary security guards that remind us daily, through acts of force, that we are simultaneously both enemies and slaves of the Corporate state - colonized, surveilled and patrolled by the desensitized and lobotomized drones of the colonizers.”
Liberal police- reform strategies misunderstand racism/white supremacy because they are apart of it. Such reforms may better conceal the system of RSW but our status as “enemies and slaves” will remain so long as we are subjected to governmental authority in a white over Black system. Accountability for cops purposefully remains incidental, random, accidental or symbolic by design in a system of injustice.
There is obvious inherent tension between the ad-hoc liberal positions of being against police brutality and pro gun-control in Black communities. Liberals desire to disarm law abiding Black citizens so that only cops & criminals have guns? What’s next, removing the dead bolt from your front door?
Dr. Blynd explains “a gun ban is a precursor to servitude.” "Those who use guns to "break" (violate) the law [criminals] will have no problem breaking the law to get guns (to commit violent crimes against you). The same people who fear firearms in the hands of the people also fear information in the minds of people. He asks “If guns supposedly cause (or encourage) crime, why are we arming police officers?"
Dependent Black people exclusively relying upon police and prosecutors to protect them dial 911 and get dealt with like Jermayne Smith or Alonzo Grant.
As with racist republican drivel, liberalism in general cannot explain or address the phenomenon of this racist system of control [everywhere Blacks and whites live in proximity the whites are in control]. Ad hoc liberal positions are a patchwork of disjointed stances intended to increase the numbers of the Democratic party - not empower Black people, disempower white supremacy or provide any meaningful explanation of the clearly visible phenomenon of racism. Blacks borrowing liberal ideology are like a traveler picking up the wrong luggage at the airport. Yet upon noticing the wrong baggage he still keeps it and tries to force himself into someone else’s clothing found in the bag.
Dr. Frances Cress Welsing explained that Black people must understand what the system of racism white supremacy is and how it functions in order to disempower and unplug themselves from it.
