This is an excellent essay on the inherent racist structure of capitalism that white America has never allowed itself to see. My fear now is that white America is unable to see or understand this even if put in front of them.

There was a time that this could have been recognized and addressed. It was beginning to happen. But the steady narrowing of the Republican party to racism as a support for extreme capitalism has now created immunity to objective thought. Propaganda has corrupted the national culture to the point that only complete collapse will cause this to change.

The tragedy is that propaganda ha been allowed to undercut, logic, science, ethics, morality, and reality itself. Trump was created as a trigger. Everything but profit, racism, and hatred is fake. Trump is being used constantly to reinforce denialism. That is all that he does.

This is a Frankenstein monster that, once given power, destroys everything around it. It destroys its creators first but that is a small and ironic solace.
