Every day we see U.S. wars proliferate around the world, the economy is crashing, climate change wreaking havoc. We see the growing epidemic of murder and brutality of African people. We see the two-tiered Jim Crow “justice” system in this country that allows the police to be a daily menacing presence in African communities.
What is the solution to a system that allows the majority of the world to suffer?
The Days in Solidarity with African People 2012 national campaign is answering that question. The theme for 2012 is “Facing the Truth About Racial Injustice, How White People Can See the Future Through the Eyes of the Oppressed!”
