U.S. racism led to the murder of 17 year old Trayvon Martin; from the police to the courts, the capitalist system continues to protect racist murders.
In 2012 George Zimmerman gunned down Trayvon Martin because he was a Black youth in Amerikkka. The capitalist system has protected Zimmerman ever since. Masses of workers wanting “justice” protested to have Zimmerman tried for the racist murder of Trayvon Martin.
Neither Trayvon nor any worker will ever get justice through the bosses court system. Since the beginning of the trial the bosses have made it impossible to talk about the very essence of the case, racism. At the very beginning the judge ruled that the topic of race would be “severely limited” and discussion of “racial profiling” would not be allowed. Capitalism can never address the issue of racism. Racism was created by the capitalist class and is the glue that holds their system together.
Bosses profit from Racism
Since Obama was elected in 2008 he has tried to convince us that Amerikkka has entered a “post racial” society. The truth is that through Obama’s leadership, the most vicious racist attacks have occurred.
The only solution is Communist Revolution!!!
The working class must take the streets! We cannot allow the murder of another young Black man to go down in silence. We must fight back against racism and the capitalist system that depends on it. But “justice” for Trayvon and all the other victims of capitalism will only come with the overthrow of the system that creates these conditions. Once the bosses’ system is smashed, the need to divide the workings class and super exploit some will no longer exist. Only then will we be able to smash racism, sexism and all other anti-working class ideas. This is the fight of the Progressive Labor Party. Join us!
