Gangs of St. Louis

March 17, 2015

Ferguson is but an illustration, among many in the suburbs and satellite towns of America.   Money is there to be taken, by a dominant minority of citizens with a front (say a city manager, a judge, a prosecutor, a police chief, and their hangers-on), using its police as its enforcers, marking the majority of citizens (say by their color), who are too poor and marginalized (and terrorized, as need be) to resist, for the squeeze. It’s small-time, petty thievery, but lucrative enough, plus grants for equipment. And it keeps the undesirables under control.

Racism in the Ferguson Gang.  [Note that in an earlier era, Reagan’s baby would have italian, and before that, Irish (both groups were viewed as disgustingly dark and black).]

From → democracy, racism
