Genocide in Flint

Genocide is defined as "the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group".  The majority of the residents of Flint, Michigan are poor and unemployed black people having lost their jobs when the auto industry moved out of their city.  They are now superfluous populations and the racist Republican Governor Rick Snyder of that state knowingly allowed this lead in the water crisis to fester.

Capitalism doesn't give one damn about the people - corporate profits come first, second, and last.  The people on this planet need to walk away from capitalism and their sociopathic political agents who are killing us daily with war, environmental destruction, growing poverty and loss of our civil liberties.

The Native Americans said the white man was blinded by his love for the 'green frog skin' - the dollar bill.  The Native people said the white man could not see and understand his relationship to nature because of his spiritual disconnection from our Mother Earth.  Now the corporate masters want to put every one of us on the reservation - a reservation of toxicity, undrinkable water, unclean air, endless violence and dire poverty.

Time has come to rattle our chains while we still can - these corporate pirates are out to kill us all. No one is safe with these bastards in power.
