While the media reports that the death of Eric Garner and the dismissal of charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo are indicative that America is not in fact in a “post-racial” era, underground online forums claim that Garner’s death and the use of extreme police force are indicative of something more sinister: a police state.
From Ferguson to Staten Island to other police shootings all over the United States and the subsequent government forces called in to quell irate crowds of protesters, the results show one thing: the US government knows how to handle civil disobedience. Continue reading →
Last night, in the midst of protests in reaction to the non-indictment of Daniel Pantaleo, the Staten Island cop responsible for choking and killing Eric Garner, Twitter erupted in one of the most powerful hashtags we’ve ever witnessed: #CrimingWhileWhite. This hashtag allowed White people to share their experience with police officers that often ended with a pat on the bum and no shooting, choking or calls for justice. And now Twitter has responded to that hashtag with #AliveWhileBlack. This social media movement is an outpouring of Black people sharing their experiences of living everyday life as a Black person and the disparities that come along with it.

The Household Industry
The industries of finance (banking), manufacturing, and government, real counterparts of the pure industries of capital, goods, and services, are easily defined because they are generally logically structured. Because of this their processes can be described mathematically and their technical coefficients can be easily deduced. This, however, is not the case with the service industry known as the household industry.

WHY SUSPECTS CONFESS (1991)
