The start of the end for the American empire
America has a long and troubled history of race relations; The majority of African American are not giving the right they deserve under their constitution, Freddie Gray Jr., a 25-year-old was one of them he died in police custody last year. Gray’s suspicious death sparked riots, with 250 people arrested, 20 police officers injured, 285 to 350 businesses damaged, 150 vehicles and 60 buildings set on fire, and thousands of police and the Maryland National Guard deployed. A state of emergency was even declared within the city’s limits The fast–moving events in the United States, sparked by spasms of mass slayings and other violence, growing racial unrest with the killings of African Americans at the hands of police, demonstrations and riots, and attendant political chaos – all unfolding in the background of the race for the White House, which has descended into farce. Today you can cut the racial tension with a knife. And now Donald Trump is the elect president, he is a sexist, racist, impulsive narcissist who lies with abandon and hates with fervor.He is the flag of a disaffected white middle class conservatives,an increasingly angry white working class with weak education and job prospects. Steve Bannon is now in the cockpit of national power, one of the most talented practitioners of the dark arts of political propaganda; the murder of a policeman by a black man or undocumented Hispanic, or a Muslim suicide bomber will fuel weeks of media melodrama in their hands as they continue to create an alternative reality for cable news while driving a policy agenda dictated by petro-billionaires.Right-wing media experts, and the think-tanks and billionaires who fund them, will have unlimited fodder for these stories.
