Georgia Probationers Are No Third World Workers
by Wiawimawo of MIM(Prisons) June 2011
A popular story in the bourgeois press this week gave an interesting side-by-side comparison of the lumpen in the United $tates to the Third World proletariat. The story came on the heels of new repressive practices targeting Latinos in the state of Georgia with immigration laws beginning July 1 of this year. For fear of deportation and imprisonment, both of which restrict their ability to work, migrant labor crews made up of Mexicans and Guatemalans are steering clear of Georgia. As a result fruit is rotting in the fields.(1) The story exposes the extreme parasitism of this country that cannot even harvest its own food. Amerikans are so rich and spoiled that the labor market cannot fill jobs paying above minimum wage if the work is too hard. If the labor market were free and open the jobs would fill up instantly, but Amerikans oppose this vehemently as they cannot maintain exploiter-level incomes without closed borders. In these times of economic crisis many of these parasites would have you believe that they are “struggling to put food on the table.” As they let food literally rot in the fields, we see that just is not true.

By Nikolai Brown US Welfare Cuts Increasingly Affect Emerging Non-White Majority, No Coincidence Low birth rates amongst Whites and migration from exploited countries will lead to the US becoming majority non-White in thirty years. Compared to Whites, this non-White population will also be younger. Thus, it makes sense the Tea Party movement and the Amerikan […]

Jasiri X is a hip hop artist from Pittsburgh who raps the news over some dope beats produced by The Grand Architect Paradise Gray of X Clan. The two release these tracks as videos on youtube.com in a series titled “This Week with Jasiri X.” Jasiri X is popular in activist circles, frequently performing at benefits and rallies. We’ve been bobbing our heads to X’s tracks since the release of OG3 – Oscar Grant Tribute in January 2009, but in light of his most recent release, American Workers vs. Multi-Billionaires, we decided to take a closer look.

This Indigenous national liberation struggle in the heart of empire– one which RAIM fully supports– needs allies. These allies are not to be found amongst Whites, which throughout history […]

How did this book come about, and what was so new about its way of looking at things? JS: Settlers completely came about by accident, not design. And what was […]
