Op-Ed Updates: Where We Stand
Bassem Masri: “Racism is the conduit to white power”
With one in 100 Americans imprisoned, mass incarceration is a high mortality and morbidity contagious disease, that has gone unnoticed by public health and other medical officials. Structural systems are deeply entrenched to guarantee this disease afflicts all Americans. For most white Americans the disease of mass incarceration is asymptomatic, unaware they too have contracted the disease with risks for complications whether incarcerated or not.
The mainstream media continue to misrepresent the facts and give credence to misinformation. After all, this is organized crime, where government agencies, the mainstream media and big corporations engage in criminal activities and cover each other’s back. This is the current state of affairs, as we enter the latest US presidential election.
A presidential election without choice where one candidate, Donald Trump, refers to Whites as “us”; and Blacks, migrants and Muslims as “them”. He believes “them” should be contained, in the interest of white supremacy, to make America white again. NEWSFLASH: America was never only white.
The other choice for president, Hillary Clinton, is known for her corruption plus the dead bodies surrounding her law firm (allegedly!), her State Department appointment, and now her run for president. Hey, but with Wall Street and mainstream media covering her back, she has immunity and at no risk in becoming one of the incarcerated. She is free to engage in criminal conduct in the interest of national security.
Both mainstream parties have ordinary citizens divided and fighting each other over who is less evil to become President of the US. While both parties do their best to conceal their true intentions. Racism is their favorite tool and weapon, a conduit to invoke white power meant to divide & conquer we, the people.
