"Real freedom will come only when we free ourselves of the domination Western education, Western culture, and the Western way of living" - Mahatma Gandhi

We’re indoctrinating the children of the world into a system where they are stripped of their culture, language, etc. just to become mindless consumers and workers with no sense of history. The pursuit of Western education has only created MORE poverty around the world. Not everyone can be doctors and lawyers. Sound familiar?? SMH This is so ‪#‎tragic‬

It used to be just “driving while black” as the known #racist offense. These days it’s “playing music while black”, “walking/standing on the sidewalk while black”, and now “waiting for your kids outside of their school while black”. Really?! SMH

http://thefreethoughtproject.com/unarmed-father-tased/

Watch and listen to the video. At no time did he raise his voice, gesture wildly, or become belligerent. He just let them know that he knew his rights. The #cops were the ones who escalated the whole situation. 

I watched video last night from #TheYoungTurks show who were covering this case. They posed a simple question to those who still believe cops do no wrong or black people deserve this type of treatment which is born out of #discrimination and #racism: What would you do in that situation? What could you do to prevent yourself from getting #tased and taken to #jail when you’ve done absolutely nothing wrong? 

They talked about #FoxNews and Bill OReilly who never see anything wrong with the cops’ actions and paint people of color as potential criminals every night. They called out #BillOreilly to watch the tape and asked him #WhatWouldYouDo? I’m sure he’d find a way to spin it and blame the #assaulted. SMH

This man with a gun is Lance Tamayo who called police to let them know he was going to commit suicide. They counseled him for 15 min on the phone. He informed them of his location and when the cops came he got out of his car to surrender, then went back into his car to get his gun. He randomly aimed the gun at bystanders and children who ran for their lives. #Cops negotiated then shot him in the stomach/chest. He pled not guilty from his hospital bed. My question is why can’t ALL Americans be afforded the same treatment? We all know if he was a #blackman he would never have been allowed to turn his back on police to go back into his car and he most likely would never been alive to plead anything. Quite frankly, the probability of the cops entertaining his threat of suicide long enough to offer counseling is nil to none. Thankfully, in this case, this man still has a voice and his race was not the driving force as to whether or not he lived or died no matter how dangerous his actions.

America shows us time and time again how little they value #black lives. It’s not a history lesson. It’s in the nation’s and world’s face and a lot of black people’s personal experience every single day. The illusion of #equality is a dream once more for many disillusioned Americans. They keep having to be shocked awake every few years. SMH We cannot let the movement in #Ferguson die off like it has for so many of our black American citizens. 

In my opinion, when it comes to the lack of outrage when police decide who lives or dies based off of #race the problem (amongst many) is too many people go on feeling that these disparities of #injustice have nothing to do with them and/or still deny that race is even a factor. Black #Americans inhabit only about 12% of this country yet every 28 hours a #blackman is killed by #lawenforcement. They will generally negotiate and use proper takedown #tactics when the suspect is not of #African descent. #Caucasian suspects can shoot up a theater full of people, murder their girlfriend and her whole family, or commit premeditated killings of their coworkers (all happened) and #police will negotiate for HOURS to save his life and let the #judicialsystem carry out as it may. #Blackpeople are not awarded such privilege. #blacklivesmatter

Hmm, not much has changed. Still using and abusing the poor. 
AND why the hell is our government buying clothes for 1.5 billion dollars each year overseas in unregulated sweatshops that exploit the poor instead of investing and creating jobs here?? 

@soulrevision repost:
On March 25, 1911, a #fire broke out in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in #NewYork, which led to the #death of 146 garment #workers. The #victims of the fire were between the ages of 43 and 14. 
#Factory operators were known to lock the doors to the stairwells to prevent workers from taking unauthorized breaks, this was true during the fire as the foreman who held the stairway door key had already escaped, many were trapped & could not get out.

The #UnitedStates has prided itself on valuing human rights but it has fell short in the area of labor. After the Triangle Factory Fire, many #corporations took their #businesses #overseas and built unregulated #factories in developing #countries.

Even now, the #US #government spends more than $1.5 billion a year at factories overseas to purchase clothes for government #employees.

Many of the factories that the government purchases clothes from (#Bangladesh & #Cambodia) violate child labor laws, as child laborers make up 1/3 of the work force.

Many of the “luxuries we have in terms of #merchandise, come at the cost of another human’s pain.

I hate when they put #murderers on paid leave. Is he arrested yet?
There were no rallies or fundraisers for the #cop who didn’t #kill anybody. Dawon Gore is already awaiting termination, but they can’t arrest and charge the murderer? Keep telling yourself it’s not about #race.
