The US is not better than any other country it's just rich and if you're white or lucky you can participate in that wealth but the only reason it would suck to live elsewhere is because the US Empire and Friends have fucked that place over to enrich itself
Fuck this modern empire that coopted the liberatory struggle of a colony to turn it into a coaling station populated by hundreds of thousands of people.
Fuck this country that leaves clowns and buffoons in formal charge of us while superseding them with unelected bureaucrats and then asks us to tie ourselves to the rotting husk of our owner.
Fuck this country that even now is doing its very best to keep Puerto Rico from having any control at all, on any level, over its future.

A coworker of mine Tuesday was in a bad mood and raving about how she had found out two of our coworkers “didn’t have papers” and kept saying she was going to call ICE because “everyone speaking Spanish is illegal.”

If a white man wants to lynch me, that's his problem. If he's got the power to lynch me, that's my problem. Racism is not a question of attitude; it's a question of power. Racism gets its power from capitalism. Thus, if you're anti-racist, whether you know it or not, you must be anti-capitalist.
