A Statement on Charlottesville

We are saddened and outraged by the display of white supremacist violence in Charlottesville this weekend. It is no coincidence that we see the far-right mobilizing while corporate interests continue to strip poor and working class people of their healthcare and their right to organize; that this happens while cutting public services and giving away massive tax cuts to the rich; that this happens while the budget prioritizes increases to an out-of-control war machine and climate deniers threaten to move us quicker towards a world that is increasingly unlivable for poor and working people. We are saddened, but we are not fooled.

The U.S. has a long and troubled history of racialized economic inequality, and we must build and sustain movements that take on both white supremacy and economic inequality. We must recognize and name white supremacy in all forms -- whether it’s the violence of white supremacists against anti-fascist protestors, the police killing unarmed black men with impunity, the violent separation of mothers and fathers from their children due to immigration status, or attacks on low-wage workers and cuts to public services justified through dog-whistle politics -- while simultanously offering our own bold vision for a just world.

United for a Fair Economy is unapologetically pro-black, pro-immigrant, pro-woman, pro-worker, pro-latinx, pro-disabled people, pro-queer, and pro-indigenous. We believe that racial, economic and environmental justice is not only possible, it is what is demanded of us.

    Opportunity Nation’s mission is to restore the promise of the American Dream by ensuring that everyone – regardless of their skin color, gender, faith or where they were born – has an equal opportunity to succeed. We work with more than 350 Coalition members in 38 states to fulfill this vision. We must embrace what makes America unique – our diversity and the value we place on everyone and their potential to help build strong communities and a strong nation. https://www.tejar.pk/sports-outdoors/tablets/tablet

    I completely agree we need to bring these issues to light and make changes. We see it all too often here in Durham but law enforcement keeps doing whatever they want. Thanks for putting out great content and a great blog.
