Trump/Clinton Ticket Dividing Us Along Lines of Race?
By Lloyd Hart
The American establishment is making a huge mistake making this (S)election solely about race when white Americans are the least racist they have ever been and interracial marriage and coupling is at it's highest. Race is definitely part of the economic struggle's of families across the nation especially when you realize that if African Americans, Native Americans and Latin Americans were provided the same meager economic recovery whites got over the last seven years we would all be bearing down on the worker screwing economic record instead of the race bating dribble coming from the calcified geriatric lips of the Trump/Clinton ticket.
In the 1960s & 70s when Americans were the wealthiest as a result of low housing and energy costs Americans seemed to be the most generous when it came to social justice policy with the supreme court abolishing the death penalty. Young folk had money to go to college and college was affordable instead of classist and racist like it is today. It's institutional entrenched racism in policing, banking and municipal, state and federal institutions that is the real challenge today and not so much racism between Americans.
The only reason we are all "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" is because the national media is finally reporting what was routine police shootings. This is good but with the corporate media and the political, Military and financial establishment there is usually an underhanded reason why they are almost only talking about race.
It's simply that Hillary Clinton can't get (S)elected campaigning on the economy or foreign policy. The establishment can Electronic Jim Crow Clinton in, in some states but other states have cleaner harder to steal elections so the establishment needs a narrative to keep democratic party regulars inline. So they chose race and gave Trump and Clinton their marching orders when the majority of Americans want justice and yes racial justice in the economy, but it's a just economy that opens hearts and economic struggle that closes them.
