    ANATOMY OF OPPRESSION –PART IV
    We supposedly have the inalienable right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but Black and Brown people live now and have always lived under and around arbitrary authority that is white authority. Control of education is an integral part of democratic organization - a very natural and obvious structure. Community control of police is against the organization of government control from the top down.

    Jim Crow is not dead but alive and well and growing by the minute. The question for our next broadcast is...Do we have the emotional capacity to deal with this reality?

    This week we will revisit the COMMUNITY CONTROL struggle for education and the NYC 20 billion dollar school budget as it relates to the reality of our struggle against oppression for freedom and liberation.

    “CATS DON’T EDUCATE MICE; THEY EAT THEM.” - Ralph Poynter

    A youth on Twitter sent this tweet: "#If I die in police custody. Tell my family I loved them. But don't listen to their calls for peace. BURN THIS *** DOWN TO THE GROUND!"
