  1. This growing display of police brutality is not a new phenomenon, its what the Police was designed to do from the beginning. Intimidate and threaten, arrest and police the property of the ruling class, the slavers. [Source 01.](https://time.com/4779112/police-history-origins/) Be it Native Americans, Blacks, Irish, Mexicans, labor-union organizers and even "white foreigners", the police were not developed/formalized to protect them, but to protect the properties of the ruling class. To utilize the police to subjugate and control minorities.
  2.  
  3. The murder of George Floyd is not just an issue of racism, its also an issue of the tainted principles and priorities of the whole Police INSTITUTION.
  4.  
  5. And its sad that when people try to bring these issues to light, to have a honest open discussion about them. Then its always replied with excuses, distractions, whatifs, whatbouts and out of context simplification of issues to justify the status quo.
  6.  
  7. * Why dont they take care of their own.
  8.  
  9. * Why cant they just get jobs.
  10.  
  11. * Why cant they just stop dealing drugs.
  12.  
  13. * Why cant they stop killing each other.
  14.  
  15. * Why cant they just stop looting.
  16.  
  17. * Why do they need to protest, they have the same opportunities others have.
  18.  
  19. So many people that just dont take the time to look back at the history of black people and see the amount of obstacles and resistance they keep facing.
  20.  
  21. I mean the latest protests themselves, you have people dismissing very real issues because some few unknown people do something bad. AND there are reports of undercover police being caught in instigating the riot breakouts, just so they can dismantle the protesters and force their authority over them. But the people still respond with. "I just think they shouldn't loot. Its not right." [SOURCE 02.](https://www.courthousenews.com/minnesota-officials-link-arrested-looters-to-white-supremacist-groups/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=minnesota-officials-link-arrested-looters-to-white-supremacist-groups)
  22.  
  23. Then there are well known long term strategies of alt-right, right-wing, radical right, and nazi and white supremacy groups who all know and share their ideas for advancement of their ideology. To inject themselves into authoritative positions in LE and Government and prioritize like minded individuals to join so to slowly over time take over institutions.
  24.  
  25. The Police has never been prioritized to "protect and serve" the public. Its a fucking motto that was mailed in a competition in 1950s by some random cop and they stuck that shit to the side of the police cars for publicity.

  26.  
  27. The issue isnt with any singular police, the WHOLE INSTITUTION itself is the issue. Its essence is tainted from its origin. Look up Pig Laws. Thats what the police is for. Thats what they were created to enforce. [source 04.](https://www.pbs.org/tpt/slavery-by-another-name/themes/black-codes/)
  28.  
  29. To maintain a control on minorities to ensure that they could keep black people enslaved even after the civil war. By instituting various laws that would be almost solely used on black people to ensure that they could not escape the slave states and be in return imprisoned by these new pig laws , such as
  30.  
  31. * Riding a train is illegal while black.
  32.  
  33. * Walking next to the railroad while black is illegal.
  34.  
  35. * Riding a horse is illegal.
  36.  
  37. * Leaving a job without completing it regardless of pay or not, is illegal.
  38.  
  39. * Seeking a new job without the permission of the old job boss, is illegal.
  40.  
  41. * Not having a job is illegal.
  42.  
  43. * Loitering while black is illegal.
  44.  
  45. * Testifying against a white is illegal.
  46.  
  47. They essentially created so many asinine bullshit laws that ended up re-enslaving thousands of black people. People who wanted to escape these slave states were caught by the POLICE and then locked up, then laws allowed the police to send prisoners out for "work-programs" at plantations. [source 05.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Codes_\(United_States\))
  48.  
  49. Eventually as time goes by, many of the few moments where black people were able to rise up and persevere, ended up with white slavers either killing or destroying their growth. So to bring them back again.
  50.  
  51. Around the 1900s there was a Black Wallstreet. Did you know that? There were cities with black professionals, educated black families, little to no crimes, well off, well supported. They had communities flourishing and growing. To the degree that Black people had their own BANK. Yes a Fully Black owned Bank in 1900s. [Source 06.](https://www.oneunited.com/the-history-of-black-wall-street/)
  52.  
  53. Do you know what happened?
  54.  
  55. White slavers and KKK bombed burned killed and beat the town to dust. All that progress they took it away because it went against their preaching of how blacks were inferior. So they destroyed towns, they went to black politicians who made progress and dragged them out and beat them some were treated worse. It took four to six decades before black people had representation again in the government. [Source 07.]() [Source 08](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulsa_race_massacre).
  56.  
  57. > An accusation of sexual assault was the match that ignited the smoldering hatred and resentment of the thriving Black Wall Street community. The accusation inspired a lynch mob, which included nearly 2,000 Ku Klux Klan members who wanted to get “justice.” Everything came crashing down on Black Wall Street on May 31, 1921. In just 16 hours, police had arrested 60% of Black residents living in Black Wall Street. Mobs burned Black owned businesses and homes, and murdered hundreds of Black citizens. When Black men joined forces to protect their homes, they were ultimately driven out in fear for their lives. By today’s estimates, the dreadful and murderous 16 hours caused more than $30 million in damages. The residents of Greenwood were blamed for the death and destruction, and the government made it nearly impossible to rebuild.

  59. Then came more of the jim crow laws again. [Source 09.](https://www.history.com/topics/early-20th-century-us/jim-crow-laws) and the Sundown Towns. [Source 10.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sundown_town)

  61. **Then came fucking Nixon to seal the devils deal.**
  62.  
  63. Nixon domestic advisor was proud to announce publicly that they were lying about drugs in black neighborhoods so that they could police black neighborhoods and arrest and beat their leaderships and disrupt any organization and collective power building that those minority groups could achieve. This guy gleefully stated that they would DELIBERATELY portray black people as heroin and drug abusers thugs and gangsters to align white people with republican ideologies.

  64.  
  65. Then came Reagan and the "alleged" CIA-Contra trade. Reagan's administration basically stripped away countless social benefits and programs meant to help the struggling class, and lowered taxation on the wealthy giving birth to REAGANOMICS. Reagan's administration also further expanded on the nixons methodology of utilizing media to portray minorities in certain lights. The introduction of crack cocaine led to further decrease of budget in social benefits and programs to allow minorities and poor people to grow out of the lower economical classes, as the drug lead to increase policing, which meant more requests for increased police budgets, which meant less state funds for social programs directed at the same communities that were now targets for repeated increased policing.
  66.  
  67. During Reagan’s last year in office the African American poverty rate stood at 31.6%, as opposed to 10.1% for whites. Black unemployment remained double that of whites throughout the decade. By 1990, the median income for black families was $21,423, 42% below white households. [Source 12.](https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2016/06/27/1-demographic-trends-and-economic-well-being/)
  68.  
  69. The lack of social programs and available pathways to escape so called urban slums, lead to increase criminal growth and the formation of some of the most violent criminal gangs in the US. The lack of opportunity for normal societal and economic growth, lead to narrowing pathways to escape the surroundings and resulted in a degrading community from the introduction of crack cocaine and Reaganomics.
  70.  
  71. Meanwhile in the last 30-50 years there was continued racism that went throughout most states, even northern ones.

  86. But the truth is, the real brutality of that night, cant even be imagined.
  87.  
  88. Just take 1 min of your day right now and TRY to imagine if you were there. If you had been woken up to 2,000+ people wanting to destroy you, to humiliate you, to take everything from you. If you were dragged out, beaten, seeing your neighbors, friends and family being lynched. Dragged, Beaten, Raped, Humiliated, Murdered.
  89.  
  90. That helplessness you are just TRYING to imagine, is something people still go through in this day and age.
  91.  
  92. **Its the helplessness that people like George Floyd are unfortunate to experience.**
