If there is ever going to be any progress for the American black communities, or for the indigenous people, or for any of the other subjugated peoples living within (and outside) the borders of the so-called ‘United States’, it must be recognised that the struggle cannot be limited to campaigns against police brutality nor for opportunist and individualist calls for the further integration of the subjugated individual into the poisoned ranks of the exploiting classes. Instead of these non-solutions, all those struggling against the effects of American colonialism should return to the source. The battle against police murders of black children, and mass incarceration should take us to the forefront of the fight against American colonialism as a whole, and should encourage genuine struggle, over the liberal notions of “creating dialogue” between the oppressor and the oppressed. This is not simply a struggle for representation in the media, or in politics, but the liberation of a captive nation from their colonisers. No amount of superficial police-reform or token media representation for black individuals will end the subjugation of the black communities by American settler-colonialism and capitalism, only the organised and revolutionary action of the oppressed peoples themselves can do that.
Justice for David Joseph and all other victims of US white settler-colonialist imperialism!
BLACK LIVES WILL ONLY MATTER WHEN THE COLONIALISTS ARE AFRAID TO TAKE THEM!
