Black Folks: Difficult Materialism – The Wrestle for Liberation and Fairness in a Capitalist Society.




( I simply can’t wrap my head round the truth that Black individuals don’t appear to need liberation. The truth that lots of you like materials issues over the way forward for your progeny makes me assume that maybe that is a part of the explanation why the dominant society doesn’t take Black individuals very significantly. I couldn’t have a toddler on this society solely to see that little one murdered seventeen or eighteen years later whether or not by cop or peer or perhaps a member of the family. Even now, I’ve an issue watching different individuals’s youngsters get MURDERED or get railroaded by the legal injustice system.

Typically, I ponder how we’re going to proceed as a bunch on this nation after we clearly don’t need to be liberated from a capitalist system that bought most of you promoting your physique simply to eat or bought you pimping your youngsters to intercourse merchants/traffickers and different unsavory characters within the grownup leisure trade simply so you may pay the lease, which is able to by no means be paid in full. There ought to be legal guidelines in place that mandate after twenty years of constantly paying lease, a reprieve (particularly in the event you’re an older individual) from having to proceed paying lease every month ought to turn out to be a brand new Welfare coverage for older People starting of their 50’s and for individuals who have constantly labored, and paid their federal and state taxes. Nevertheless, below this capitalist system, you’ll be a slave without end till the day you die.

And most of us are dying prematurely from stress-related sicknesses or cancer-causing brokers, which they’ve put in our meals, consuming water, hair merchandise, cleaning soap, toothpaste, and so forth. We’ve given up a lot of our human rights to those financial tyrants that run our nation and declare they’re doing an ideal job of working our nation with a nationwide opioid epidemic claiming the lives of so many within the dominant society. In case you assume the crack epidemic was dangerous, check out the present opioid epidemic. The numbers of opioid overdoses are being skewed to cover this disaster at present claiming the lives of so many younger and middle-aged white males and white ladies who can’t even maintain a job lengthy sufficient due to their dependancy to opioids. It’s a nationwide shame that the U.S. leads all different nations in drug addictions, overdoses, and suicides.

The query is why? Why has the federal government chosen to coddle these opioid addicts once they didn’t coddle Black individuals for the crack epidemic within the 1980’s. Coddling these opioid addicts are costing the federal authorities in addition to state governments billions of {dollars} if not trillions every year. They incarcerated thousands and thousands of Black males and Black ladies throughout the so-called Drug Wars. A lot of them died in prisons all throughout this nation by the hands of corrections officers and different inmates. However you see how they aren’t fast to incarcerate the opioid addicts.

Your love of cash and materials issues will maintain you and your future generations enslaved to a capitalist system. Making YouTube movies all day lengthy speaking concerning the variety of capturing deaths by cops and different determined, hopeless, and broke individuals in your neighborhood will proceed to go unaddressed as a result of the dominant society doesn’t take Black individuals significantly. They see you could be simply purchased off with only a couple million {dollars} after your son or daughter will get murdered by a cop. Nearly all of you’ll by no means see that form of cash working a daily 9 to 5. You’re being exploited. They don’t pay us sufficient cash to retire early and revel in what remaining years we’ve left. Nearly all of us spend about 98% of our lives making an attempt to outlive and maintain a roof over our head. Many don’t have good credit score. Due to this fact, you turn out to be targets to mortgage servicers and banks everytime you need to buy a home or automobile.

In case you didn’t love cash and materials issues a lot, it’s possible you’ll develop a revolutionary spirit. Chances are you’ll even take steps to break down the system of capitalism. Capitalism is the automobile that drives each different oppressive system on the planet. You shouldn’t need to spend the vast majority of your life and labor for the only real advantage of one other group when you die poor and go away nothing to your youngsters. We use all our abilities, bodily belongings, psychological information, stamina, and youth to profit each different group besides ourselves. They take our labor from us by economically exploiting us to allow them to make billions of {dollars}, and generate wealth for his or her future generations.

Over 100 years in the past, my ancestors had been probably sharecroppers who did all of the heavy lifting however ended up with nothing. Their youngsters doomed to dwell out their days working some J.O.B. and might’t even afford a trip. Proper now, most of you’re dying from stress-related sicknesses created by this aggravating atmosphere known as America. Most of you are attempting to determine the way you’re going to pay the lease, payments, automobile observe, automobile insurance coverage, taxes, medical health insurance premiums, childcare bills, and so forth. Most of you’re so drained from working solar as much as solar down till everyone else round you suffers due to all of the stress you’re below. There are some that may deal with stress higher than others. Some persons are specialists with regards to dealing with stress. Nevertheless, there are conditions that turn out to be virtually insufferable for a lot of. Their work atmosphere could also be a hostile atmosphere. It could be a racist atmosphere. Or it might be an atmosphere during which the administration workers is your largest drawback.

Capitalism is a system that goes in opposition to our very nature, which is the necessity for freedom. As human beings, we must always cherish freedom over tyranny. Capitalism is a system constructed upon enslaving others, bending individuals’s will to suit one other’s agenda, and exploiting each ounce of expertise, bodily labor, and psychological means an individual has to supply. In the meantime, the typical employee bee doesn’t profit. You get to die poor. You get to undergo in your well being, together with mentally and emotionally. You should have nothing to depart your youngsters. Your youngsters will undergo lengthy after you’re lifeless. Since you like cash and materials issues over liberation, all of us get to pay the value.
