  •  The opposing positions though are an opportunity (0+ / 0-)

    In essence, I would not try to refute your assertion. In fact, as a middle aged white guy, I simply don't have the perspective to even attempt a credible refutation.

    What I think needs to be said though is that that the NSA activity (and now DEA re SOD"), overt militarization of local law enforcement, the drug war, privatization of the prison complex, the war of terror, etc. are all symptoms of the same dynamic, which is the corporate take over of government. At their core, all these thing are really just profit mechanisms of the Military/Intelligence complex.

    All the claimed justification for the above liberty-snatching policies are simply marketing tactics to sell the fear to the public as cover for elected henchmen (and women) to do America Inc.'s treasury-siphoning bidding.

    There is no doubt non-whites have historically borne and still today bear the brunt of the assault on personal liberty and I can't imagine having had to live with that, but at this point we are ALL fodder, we are all just meat for profit mill, which is indeed color blind, save for lust for green and gold.

    To this end, minorities -- who might be rightly bitter and dismissive of white fear re the NSA and such -- should try to harness white anger towards this new panhuman assault as a binding agent, if you will, leading to solidarity in their struggles.

    I'm just Double Tapped the hell out.
