what does being white have to do with anything?
I'm trying to understand your extremist stance on sociology. I've been reading your posts for years now and you seem to feel guilt toward the treatment of minorities in America.
since the fall of the soviet union and the subsequent triumphant hegemony of capitalism i think it's gotten worse with the rich being ever richer and the neglected poor falling further behind. in the global south capitalism just keeps sucking like the vampire it is!
I wouldn't say it's gotten a lot worse.
The biggest change with the fall of communism in the east would probably be American manufacturers moving there operations overseas to cut costs.
Could there be improvements to the economically displaced here in America, sure. There have been a lot of improvements across the globe since the turn of the 20th century. The fact we debating this topic on a public internet forum is one of the thousands of evidences of this.
America is not free of committing war crimes as evidenced https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guant%C3%A1namo_Bay
However there is no one person in charge here in America. Stalin was someone who ruled Russia for over 30 years.
Stalin was someone who signed a decree to the effect that all Russian soldiers who allowed themselves to be taken prisoner were to be considered traitors and enemies of the state. They and their entire families were subject to exile, imprisonment or execution. Joseph Stalin was therefore, by his own decree, legally subject to execution for treason when his son was taken prisoner.
But hey one man's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter right?
