Perhaps you're confusing me with someone else, I'm not Shaq that talks about social injustice and establishing your brand in the same sentence. I don't pander in that kind of sophistry. My argument is that there are more sinister forces at play implicit in our economic system as well as our collective psyches; and that "systemic" racism is either a byproduct or an excuse depending on your orientation. It is a paradigm that encourages the accumulation of unlimited wealth at the expense of resources and human dignity and therefore is implicitly oppressive in nature, creating opportunity for some and hardship and disillusionment for others. It is a system that glorifies brands and corporations as symbols of immortality. It's explicitly exploitative in nature - I mean it's good to exploit resources and your advantage isn't it? I.e., winning is everything.I occasionally see this rhetorical tactic from people who want protestors to go away or or organizations to lose focus and scatter their resources. I have never seen it from someone who uses their own resources for a social justice cause they believe in. Perhaps you're the exception.
It really doesn't have a lot to do with what you look like (not physically at least), the chief function of law enforcement has always been to preserve the status quo, to protect property and wealth. Again, racial profiling is just a byproduct. Until the plebes of this world learn to strip away the veneer and couch the dilemma in the proper terms; I mean collectively and in solidarity, we will continue to keep chasing our own tails, going round in circles as we are now, IMHO of course.
