    Have you spent anytime in prison in America?  They are filled to the brim.  Sure, white folks have some extra privaleges because they have not tested the system as they have had no need.  But now that the rich have declared war on white working people again (look at history) you can expect more white folks in jail.  To relate the American experience to that in the middle east is not relevant.  Degrees are not relevant.  What is relevant is the historical relationships to power.  If white ruling class power in America feels you need to be stopped, you will be and you can't do anything about it.  That is the police state we live in now.  As long as you sing their praises, you think you will be fine.  Then presto, you are taken.  Having been arrested by the state for being gay has given me some perspective.  But the struggle continues as we are only a few years away from that and the possiblities are abound.  What Mayor Bloomberg did is horrible.  No need to compare it to anyone.  It is bad in itself.

    Pass new laws to end media monopolization now.
