The War Against America: Questions and Suggestions| Opinion


Where do we go from here?
The news media wants to ignore the depth of the violence and the forces causing the violence and simply rerun their permanent refrain that this is all about racism (as an example, consider the Washington Post story that «Racial Inequality in Minneapolis is Among the Worst in the Nation»).
