Structural Violence, or, The system is rigged against people of color.

"You start out in 1954 by saying, ‘Nigger, nigger, nigger’. By 1968 you can’t say ‘nigger’ – that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me – because obviously sitting around saying, ‘We want to cut this,’ is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than ‘Nigger, nigger’."

"Structural violence is a term commonly ascribed to Johan Galtung, which he introduced in the article 'Violence, Peace, and Peace Research' (1969).[1] It refers to a form of violence wherein some social structure or social institution may harm people by preventing them from meeting their basic needs. Institutionalized adultism, ageism, classism, elitism, ethnocentrism, nationalism, racism, and sexism are some examples of structural violence as proposed by Galtung.[citation needed] According to Galtung, rather than conveying a physical image, structural violence is an 'avoidable impairment of fundamental human needs'.[2] As it is avoidable, structural violence is a high cause of premature death and unnecessary disability. Because structural violence affects people differently in various social structures, it is very closely linked to social injustice.[3] Structural violence and direct violence are said to be highly interdependent, including family violence, gender violence, hate crimes, racial violence, police violence, state violence, terrorism, and war.[4]"  ~Wikipedia

49 year-old Hillary Clinton. "Superpredators" is barely abstract.

From the crime bill to welfare reform, policies Bill Clinton enacted—and Hillary Clinton supported—decimated black America.

Hillary in 2015

"A courageous Black Lives Matter activist named Ashley Williams interrupted a private fundraiser by Hillary Clinton in Charleston, S.C., to ask why the Democratic presidential candidate called black children 'superpredators' in a speech she gave during her husband’s presidential administration.
'OK, fine, we’ll talk about it … Can I talk?' Clinton snapped at Williams in response. 'Do you want to hear the facts or do you just want to talk?'
She then told Williams that she never addressed the matter because she was never asked. As Williams was being removed from the room, Clinton told the crowd she was getting 'back to the issues.' HERE

After the protesters were shouted down, police removed them from the event.

This clearly implies that the only way to populist support in the south is to support the racist, murderous KKK. That this is what the majority of white voters in the south are about. And thus, politicians.

Video Surfaces of HILLARY Clinton Calling KKK Grand Dragon ‘Heart & Soul’ of AMERICA! THIS Is A MUST SEE!

"Former U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) was a card-carrying member and recruiter for the KKK. In the 1940s, he obtained the KKK rank of 'Exalted cyclops' and spent decades promoting their vile, racist message. And he took part in what was – at the time- the longest filibuster ever against the Civil Rights Act." Video and text from Anonews. PS: 9/11!!!! 9/11!!!! 9/11!!!!!

Nothing Bill Clinton Said To Defend His Welfare Reform Is True

Bill Clinton Has Always Been This Person

Clinton has spent his entire career inflicting harm on black people while cynically claiming to speak for their interests


"Poor people, especially those of color, are worth nothing to corporations and private contractors if they are on the street. In jails and prisons, however, they each can generate corporate revenues of $30,000 to $40,000 a year. This use of the bodies of the poor to make money for corporations fuels the system of neoslavery that defines our prison system."

“It's time for the United States to start thinking of Iraq as a business opportunity," she said in a 2011 speech. 

Considering her ties to banks and big business and how she sees the devastation of an entire country for oil at the cost of an estimated 500,000 civilian lives to be a business opportunity, shall we wonder if she considers America's people of color to also be a business opportunity? She obviously doesn't care about the families, lives, and children of Iraq. Or Libya. Or Honduras.

  Nothing personal, it's just business. Democrats: Capitalism's "good cops". And capitalism requires an exploited underclass.
