Ferguson Fights The Police, Fights White Supremacy

The evolving situation in Ferguson is one of the clearest examples of the brutal repression that people face when confronting genocidal state violence in their communities.

The people, rightfully outraged by the murder of Michael Brown (an unarmed Black teenager) at the hands of the police, poured out into the street in protest. Refusing to submit to the terrorism of the white supremacist state and its police, the brave people of Ferguson took to the streets to defend their community and fight the white supremacist state.

In response – and afraid of the collective anger of the people of Ferguson – the state sent their militarized police force of armored cars, SWAT teams, and K-9 units to contain the demonstrations. Through the use of tear gas, rubber bullets, threats of violence, a no fly zone and an outright militarized occupation of whole neighborhoods, the police seek to silence any and all resistance to their genocidal rule. Police have even begun arresting journalists, exposing their intention to carry out genocide in the dark.

Why are police responding so violently to the rightful expression of anger by the people of Ferguson? Precisely because they are the agents of the state, the instrument for the rule of the white supremacist, capitalist ruling class. With their resistance, the people of Ferguson are unmasking the police as the armed thugs of the state, and highlighting the contradictions between the oppressed masses (composed in large measure of oppressed nationalities) and the white supremacist state that has no interest for their life and safety.

The state is an instrument of class oppression, and the police, as the armed wing of the state, must enforce class rule with brutality. In a white supremacist state such as the United States, the police must also enforce white supremacy through the policing and criminalization of communities of color. Lack of resources in our schools guarantee that we don’t have the quality education we need to succeed. Police in our schools and communities guarantee that those disenfranchised by the education system can have a new home inside a prison cell. Even Michael, a college bound young man, was not safe from a system that wants to keep him and his community submissive under brutal white supremacist rule.

The same brutality faced by the people of Ferguson today is the same violence currently felt by the Palestinian people in their fight against the settler colonial Israeli state. It is the same violence lived by Black and Brown people in the New York when confronting the trigger-happy NYPD. It is the same violence that enslaves, occupies, and exploits the working class in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. It is the same violence that took lives of Trayvon Martin, Ramarley Graham, Amadou Diallo, and countless others sisters and brothers who are no longer with us while their murderers walk the streets free.

Therefore, we extend our full support to the people of Ferguson in their fight of resistance against state aggression. We condemn the brutal and murderous response of the state to the just anger of the people.

The people will fight back because only when we, through self-determination and organization, seize control of our own communities there will be more Mike Browns. No one should condemn the people for resisting because as long as there is a white supremacist force occupying our communities, peace is never an option.

  1. This is exacly why we must nourish ourselfs with the one weapon that no man can take away. Education not “violence”, is the way to fight back and validate our rights.

  2. !LISTEN. THERE IS ENTIRE “NO” ANSWER TO !FINALLY “STOP” ALL OF THIS POLICE “BRUTALITY” (IT OF WHICH IS MERELY A SMALLER PART OF A LARGER NATION-WIDE !EVIL NAZI !PLOT AGAINST PEOPLE OF COLOR. SOMETHING I’VE BEEN SAYING SINCE “1998” NOW.). OTHER THAN TO ARM-UP AND GO “TACTICAL” ON ALL OF THE POLICE’S ASSES. GOING “TACTICAL” MEANING TO GET AND TO USE “HIGH-POWERED” WEAPONS AGAINST THEM. LIKE ASSAULT RIFLES AND HIGH POWERED HAND GUNS WITH “PENETRATING HIGH-VELOCITY ROUNDS”. !YEP. IT BEING THE ONLY WAY TO FINALLY “STOP” THEM. AND FOR GOOD. BECAUSE THEY DESERVE NO “RESPECT”. AND THEY ALL NEED TO BE “STOP” AND “KILLED”. JUST LIKE THEY’RE DOING TO “US”. !STOP ALL THE “USELESS” PROTESTING. AND ALL THE “USELESS” CRYING TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. TO UPHOLD JUSTICE AGAINST THESE !RACIST !WHITE !MURDERING !PIGS. BECAUSE THEY “WON’T” !STOP. JUST LIKE THEY “HAVEN’T” IN THE PAST. GET A “CLUE” BLACK PEOPLES. THE ONLY THING THAT WILL “STOP” A “BULLY” LIKE THE POLICE FORCES TODAY. IS “FORCE”. !WE THE PEOPLES WHO OUT-NUMBER THEM FROM ANYTHING FROM 700 TO 1000 (DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIFE). AND IF WE “ARMED-UP” AND USED “EFFECTIVE TACTICAL FORCE” AGAINST THEM. !THEY WOULD BE “NOTHING” THEN-AFTER. !YEP. !THEY OF WHOM ARE SO DAMN “ARROGANT”. !THEM STANDING ALL IN THE “OPEN” LIKE THEY DO. THEM BEING SO ARROGANTLY “VULNERABLE” AND “UNPROTECTED” AS THEY OFTEN ARE. BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT “YOU’LL” DO “NOTHING”. THAT’S WHY. “SHOOT” THEM, AND THEY’LL “FALL” TOO. THEY’LL ALL “FALL” TO OUR BULLETS THEN. AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO NOW. IS TO “DO IT”. !STOP BEING “COWARDICE” AND !FINALLY “FIGHT-BACK” FOR YOUR RIGHTS. AND FOR YOUR OWN DAMN PROTECTION. AND LET IT ALL START IN “FERGUSON”. I OF WHO CAN EASILY SEE MULTIPLE ATTACK POINTS THERE TO WHERE THE POLICE FORCE THERE IS VULNERABLE TODAY. AND JUST A SINGLE MAN ARMED WITH AN “AK-47 ASSAULT RIFLE (OR A SIMILAR WEAPON). COULD HAVE EASILY KILLED SEVERAL OF THEIR WHITE !RACIST !PIG ASSES ALREADY. !YEP. MERELY BY TAKING-UP A DEFENSIVE POSITION. AND “SNIPING” THEM WITH SUCH A WEAPON. A WEAPON AND IT’S AMMO (LIKE HIGH-VELOCITY STEEL-CORE BULLETS) THAT CAN ALSO EASILY “PENETRATE” THEIR BODY ARMOR. IT’S TIME FOR THE “REVOLUTION” PEOPLES. OR ELSE WE ARE “ALLOWING” A NEW “NAZI GERMANY” (IN THE NEW FORM OF NAZI AMERICA) HERE TO TAKE HOLD. IT’S YOUR CHOICE. !STOP IT. OR BECOME PART OF IT’S COMING “MURDER”. !STOP BEING SO “COWARDICE” YOU “CHICKEN-HEATED NEGROS”. AND STAND-UP AND “FIGHT-BACK” FOR ONCE. !GOSH YOU ALL MAKE ME SO DAMN “SICK”. BECAUSE ALL YOU DO IS “CRY”. AND “PRAY”. BUT YOU WON’T “FIGHT-BACK”.

  3. Im a white guy and i agree with u 100%. Im sick of these white cops that think a badge makes them gods. Theyre a bunch of wimps out of theyre badge who prbly got picked on n beaten up yrs ago. Im sick of the same white politicians , yawn, running everything. Im serious when i say the black man should take over. Start beating up white cops when they pull u over. Push for laws that wnt allow a cop to use a weapon unless one is on him. If he has to fist fight and wrestle a black man and he gets his weak cop ass beat then tough shit. He needs to be able to subdue n not shoot. If he shoots and u have no weapon then he goes to jail. Thst would stop a ton of white boys wanting to be cops and then you guys can take the forces over and run the police depts. vote out these old white male politicisns and vote in black men. Then make hollywood change. Too many fing white male stars. Thats racist. Hollywood like police n teachers n politics needs to mirror the new dark america. Not the weak white past.
