    that went before.

    Because there are now people who can pinpoint -- in real time -- "yes, this child is alone now." "Yes, these people will be out of the house for 12 hours." "Ah, there's the passwords to their accounts." "Oh, look she's flirting with so-and-so."

    It's every fucking move by almost every fucking person. Even in the worst days of the 1920s KKK heyday, Hoover's FBI,... nobody, but nobody, had that kind of surveillance on them. Martin Luther King, Fred Hampton; Marcus Garvey; Angela Davis were tailed and watched and tapped and snitched on, but not every fucking moment and detail of their lives.

    If you think this isn't a tool to be used against black people -- especially people organizing for rights -- that things are going to stay just as they were before and not be harder, you are missing the import of the event.

    PS: There's also a history of murdering working whites who organized in the US.
