I'm obsessed. It's an illness. Sorry. But.

I know we don't have race riots any more. But because George Floyd died, that is not progress.

I know we don't hang grandma from trees any more. But because George Floyd died, that is not progress.

I know we elected a black president, and integrated the schools very slightly, and so called black people and so called white people all are careful to wear their happy happy faces with one another when in public (and they're never in private). But because George Floyd died, that is not progress.

The process that killed George Floyd renews itself from day to day, from moment to moment. It is a completely modern, completely now process. It has absolutely nothing to do with history. It can be absolutely guaranteed to kill more people in the future, although possibly not today or tomorrow. If we do nothing, we give it permission to continue. What should we do? What can stop this process?

Only the elimination of whiteness as defined in and reflected by that marriage barrier. If we eliminate whiteness as non-so-called-black minorities define it, of course, you'll just set up a new whiteness as the non-so-called-black minorities take over the same marriage barrier the so called whites abandoned. That marriage barrier is the problem.
