“How many lynchings this year? We have to name it for what it is; we cannot chase down fragments of this police event or that one, with a confusion of details, narrated like a flurry of bullets, there to obfuscate what just happened, again. We must take on the whole for what it is. Slave code laws, black laws, jim crow. racist brutality and murder. Capitalism is in crisis, violence against black people is the spectacle the society is provided, to make us fear, to make us hate, to make us feel impotent, to derange. It is time to put the beast out of its misery.”
-Charles Frederick, activist and author
