A new year looms, but it’s still the same old bullshit when it comes to capitalism. Yet another innocent young member of the working class, 12 years old this time, will not receive justice under this racist system. What was Tamir Rice’s crime? Playing on a playground? Well, the real crime is that capitalism is allowed to exist.
The death of 12 year old Tamir Rice at the hands of the racist police is a crime that capitalism will let go unpunished. The Democrat Tim McGinty, the prosecutor, did a better job defending the police than most defense attorneys. It was clearly understood that McGinty “made no attempt to mask his belief that rookie officer Timothy Loehmann and his partner Frank Garmback committed no crimes” when Rice was killed in a playground.
Nothing illustrates the need for Communist Revolution greater than the impunity that racist police gun down Black members of the working class. Now the all to familiar calls for calm are going out from the usual misleader sorts, but why should there be calm. There should be no peace until the terrible criminals who stole a life be given their due, yet the ruling class puppets push passivity on the working class. The police protect and serve the racist system, and so, when they murder us, they are just doing their job.
This holiday season, fueled by corporations and quasi religious mysticism, be mindful of the fact that there are many parents who won’t see their children due to the bullets of the racist police, the bombs of the imperialists, and the proxy wars fought to preserve geo-strategic resources. Let’s take the green and religion out of the holidays and leave only the red: the redder the better. We need to build a Communist revolution in order to sweep aside this racist, sexist, system of exploitation. No more racist police murders, no more racist cops, and no more capitalism!
