The Coming Race War Won’t Be About Race

Ferguson is not just about systemic racism — it's about class warfare and how America's poor are held back, says Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
It's class war, and we're still losing. Let's quit crying and fight back. Get 'em registered and get out the Vote!
Terrible tragedies: the senseless murder of young, black, Michael Brown, and another devastating assault on justice for the common American. Get 'em registered and get out the Vote!
Now let's work on the coming Congressional Election (only 2 months away) so we can do something about this. Get 'em registered and get out the Vote!
Not by electing a "Better Bunch of Bums" and perpetuating the false both-same or equally-culpable memes of apathy and inevitable futility. Not by reconsidering a shameless opportunistic Randian sociopath just because his latest scam to lure votes involves "scrambling up" political conventions, when all he's doing is muddying up the water so newbies can't see him clearly. Get 'em registered and get out the Vote!
We need to replace 1%-Cons with Democratic Platform Dems. And it wouldn't hurt to get all the LW heroes (Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Dennis Kucinich, et al) to make a list of good DEMs to counter the both-same, equally-culpable memes that won't go away in the minds of the vast unsophisticated electorate who have neither the time nor the tools to do it themselves. Reckless memes have unintended consequences. Compare Con & Dem '12 platforms & see the clear differences for yourself: http://www.democrats.org/democratic-national-platform . Get 'em registered and get out the Vote!
2010 Never EVER Again! Get 'em registered and get out the Vote!
