your history books are full of lies, media-blitz gonna dry your eyes

The complacent middle-class part of me wants to say "there's got to be a reasonable explanation for this bullshit". Surely, this is the stuff conspiracy theory films are made of. Surely, my suspicion and my outrage are merely a byproduct of being a consumer of dystopian, cyberpunk, and anarchist literature for years.

Fortunately, the complacent middle-class part of me has never been allowed to take over. The only reasonable explanation doesn't paint a very pretty picture of the current state of civil liberties in the United States of America.

In Atlanta, a downtown building (a rather condemned-looking Medical Arts centre, or whatnot, on Peachtree Street) sported the words "WHITE POWER" and "SAVE THE WHITE RACE". The racist fucks responsible are probably still out there spraypaintin'. In St. Paul, they're arresting kids for walking down the street. And then asking them if they're Somali.

I mean -- really, USA? Really?
