Black Lives Matter — “No justice… No peace…”

Never before in America’s imperial history have black lives received such support and protection from the educated middle-class, a complete reversal of things.  For since 1526 when Spanish colonizers used African slaves to build their first settlements, the more affluent middle-class has functioned as slave-drivers over the black and brown communities.

Comes now a college educated class of Americans to be so terrorized by Covid 19, so made destitute by a wealth hoarding ruling-class and so demoralized by Trump and his Empire building deep state, that they have decided to bond in comradery with lives so black and so always enslaved.

Notwithstanding the educated white upper-half of society having always hoarded all the land, wealth, healthcare, political power and good paying jobs in law enforcement, and defying all odds, look at all the walls of middle-class moms, walls of middle-class veterans and college students dressed for brutalizing combat, as they stand like concrete pillars to inflict civil disobedience upon all the legalized killer of government.

Human nature being what it is, with all of us looking for any excuse to enrich ourselves upon the misery of others, be they less educated, less wealthy, less white or of a different class, religion or culture, what can we say about all this?

For the grand goal of society being to achieve equality by a willingness to share, such that government looses all need for deadly force, surely the here and now is perfection in changing attitudes motivation.

For only by such a isonomy as the current virus plague, the majority of our working-class unemployed and disaster capitalism awarding a multi-trillion bailout to the corporate rich, only by such a divine intervention have we been given so golden an opportunity to each be a hero the greatest that ever walked the earth.

A few questions. Why didn’t you mention the slave trade to the Middle East? You know it started in the 7th century and not in the middle of the 15th.
You also forget to mention the Middle East slave trade numbers start at 28 million and could go up to 100 million. In comparison there were 388,000 African slaves brought into what is now the USA.

And then there was Exodus… slavery in Africa of truly biblical proportions.

wrong John – try to get your timelines straight. Exodus happened at least 2000 years before the 7th century and there is mounting evidence the Jews were actually paid skilled craftsmen, like almost all the workers were.

Sue, this was not written by John. And it was in support of your comment, insofar that there has been a long history of slavery IN Africa, continental wide. Also something he forgot to mention.

and it was only one example. Not only jews were slaves in Egypt. Who built the pyramids? And when you look at ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs you can see all sort of shades of skin tones.

Slave trade has been a tradition in continental Africa well before the white man ever arrived there, and even still after the white man abolished slave trade. Read this story from the BBC headlined ‘My Nigerian great-grandfather sold slaves’ https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-53444752 The family’s wealth was based on the slave trade, up to this day. Yes, wealth. Another sin according to Mr. Ellis. And more surprisingly in Nigeria for example the slave trade persisted until the 1950’s! But no, you are not going to read this because it does not fit your world view, Mr. Ellis. The problem with BLM protests is… Read more »

Since the US/NATO overthrow of Libya the slave trade has begun again with Arab Libyan’s selling dark skinned Libyans.

not just dark skinned Libyans. But also southern migrants hoping to make it across the Mediterranean to Europe.

but this was the black man turning his fellow black man into slaves and Sue’s comment was about Arabs turning the black man into slaves. Why is the white man guilty of the black man’s and Arab’s crimes?

and yet it is you who mentioned slaves in your article. I believe John Casor could never forget about slavery. Duped by his black master, once an indentured servant himself, who later gained freedom and was granted land. Only to refuse to release his black indentured servant from a contract that had already been fulfilled years before. Instead, he turned John Casor into a slave. Black on black crime. Crime of slavery. In the US. While one of these two black men was granted land. Actually, before the slave trade to the US started many blacks came as indentured servants,… Read more »
