Race and Militarism from Ferguson to Syria: A letter to African Americans | Black Agenda Report

Race and Militarism from Ferguson to Syria: A letter to African Americansby Ajamu Baraka“A Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give. When the white man who is always the aggressor knows he runs as great risk of biting the dust every time his Afro-American victim does, he will have greater respect for Afro-American life.” – Ida B. Wells
