The US has historically been a place where “fairness is adjudicated unevenly, it’s based on inequality” in which “certain people deserve more than others,” said Ampson Hagan, a doctoral student at the University of North Carolina who has made a study of “deservingness.” American political discourse has been centered around the idea that “Blacks and minorities have been agitating for things that they don’t actually deserve,” said Hagan. ‘This actually limits the horizons for everyone” and holds back acceptance of ideas like Medicare for All.”

GLEN FORD—Chicago has the most developed movement in the nation for community control of the police. Spearheaded by the recently re-founded National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, led by Frank Chapman, the Alliance turned a 60,000-strong list of anti-police protesters into a force that has changed the political complexion of the city council, 19 of whose 50 members are now co-sponsors of the Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC). But Chicago’s newly elected Black mayor, Lori Lightfoot, opposes community control and defunding the police, ostensibly because defunding would lead to disproportionate lay-offs of minority officers.

MARGARET KIMBERLEY—The demand for community control of police ushers in a new stage of struggle, in which “young people are imagining a world where these tremendous institutions of imperialism and the police state are gone,’ said Max Rameau, an activist with Pan African Community Action (PACA), in Washington, DC. The PACA proposal would oversee police hiring, firing and operations by a board chosen from communities at random, like jurors.

PROTESTS IN USA, LAND OF MARLBORO MAN, WILL COME TO NOTHING, BECAUSE THERE IS NO SOLIDARITY, NO VISION, NOR GUIDING IDEOLOGY TO UNITE THE PEOPLE IN COMMON STRUGGLE AGAINST THE 1%.
JEFF J. BROWN—The Achilles heel for any movement in the United States, which might permanently bring social and economic justice to the 99%, always has been and still is its Marlboro Man ethic. Me-Myself-I-Go-It-Alone is glorified, admired and exalted. Sorry to say, but outside groups like the Black Panthers, 95% of US citizens would not know the meaning of solidarity if it slapped them in the face, which is Us-Ourselves-We-Sacrifice-Together.
