TMWAYF  Honestly? Quite honestly, not brutally​ honestly. Then, yeah.

@Regrann from @kurtleelove - ==>>A central focus of subproletarian life is fear. Black elderly and handicapped persons are afraid to walk or visit friends in their own neighborhoods at night or travel on public transportation because they are convinced (with good reason) that they will be assaulted. Young Black women are often uncomfortable going to parties or social gather­ings by themselves because they will invariably be harassed by Black men and even male youngsters barely into puberty. Parents who live in innercities are reluctant to send their children several blocks to attend school or to play outside after dark because they are afraid they might be harmed. Black-on-Black crime usually victimizes the working and poor, but it can paralyze virtually all Black people of whatever social class or neighborhood. It produces for capitalism and the state a deep despair, a destructive suspicion we hold against each other. It thwarts Blacks’ ability to achieve collective class consciousness, to build politi­cal agencies which advance our material and cultural interests, and develop ourselves economically. It forces Black inner-city merchants to strap revolvers on their calves or shoulders, while serving poor patrons behind plexiglass shields. It stops Black doctors from making emer­gency calls to their patients who live in the midst of a tenement slum or ghetto highrise complex. It instills a subconscious apathy toward the political and economic hierarchy, and fosters the nihilistic conviction that nothing can ever be changed in the interests of the Black masses.<<== #ManningMarable, How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America

@Regrann from @crackedrosecoloredglasses_us - The black liberation group MOVE was founded in 1972 by John Africa (born Vincent Leaphart). Living communally in a house in West Philadelphia, members of MOVE all changed their surnames to Africa, shunned modern technology and materialism, and preached support of animal rights, revolution and a return to nature.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ Their first conflict with law enforcement occurred in 1978, when police tried to evict them from their house. A firefight erupted, killing one police officer and injuring several more on both sides.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ Nine members of the group were sentenced to 100 years in prison for the officer’s killing. In 1981, the group moved to a row house on Osage Avenue.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ At their new headquarters, MOVE members boarded up the windows, built a fortified rooftop bunker and broadcasted profanity-laced political lectures with bullhorns at all hours, drawing complaints from neighbors. Members continued to rack up violations from contempt of court to illegal possession of firearms, to the point where they were considered a terrorist organization by the mayor and police commissioner.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ On the morning of May 13, 1985, the police moved on the house.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ Arriving with arrest warrants for four residents of the house, the police ordered them to come out peacefully. Before long, shooting began.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ In response to gunfire from inside the house, more than 500 police officers discharged over 10,000 rounds of ammunition in 90 minutes. The house was hit with high-pressure firehoses and tear gas, but MOVE did not surrender.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ Despite pleas for deescalation to the mayor from City Council President Joseph Coleman and State Senator Hardy Williams, Police Commissioner Gregore Sambor gave the order to bomb the house.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ At 5:28 p.m., a satchel bomb composed of FBI-supplied C4 and Tovex TR2, a dynamite substitute, on a 45-second timer was dropped from a state police helicopter, detonating near the fortified pillbox on the roof of the house.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・ Continued in comment

@Regrann from @crackedrosecoloredglasses_us - In order to get out of poverty, you have to basically be extremely lucky for almost 20 years, according to a new bookThe Vanishing Middle Class: Prejudice and Power in a Dual Economy, by economist Peter Temin. ▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫
So many deep-seeded factors have lead to the economic and wealth inequality in the U.S. today (from slavery through to the new Jim Crow prisons crisis of today, to technological shifts, to globalization, corporatization and so much else) that few Americans stand a realistic chance of ever changing their economic status. Writer Gillian B. White explains this in a detail in an April 27 piece in the Atlantic, which sums up Temin's new book. ▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫In the book, Temin explains the problem via a concept he calls the “dual economy." He divides the American economic system between an “FTE sector” of college educated, computer literate, high-salaried people (he estimates these make up about 20 percent of the roughly 320 million Americans); and the “low-wage sector,” (which represents the majoirty of the nation).
▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫
Temin's estimates trace workers' families back to before 1970, and he does the math to determines that America’s economy runs on a two-class system, in which race plays a significant role. He establishes that it would take almost 20 years of “nothing going wrong,” as White’s piece puts it, for an average person in poverty to dig their way out. ▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫ - #regrann
