In Flint, Michigan., there’s so much lead in children’s blood that a state of emergency is declared

This country needs a government. 

We let Corporations buy the U.S. gov’t and they destroyed it, so they could use us as (customers for their stuff, and) toilets for their waste. This is ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM. Not prejudice. Racism. It’s also VIOLENCE against our people—American people. Exxon, Enbridge, Shell, Chevron, and the republicans and centrist clintonian fake democrats are committing the slow murder of a generation of Black, Latinx, and post-European kids.

Flint officials and the State of Michigan are going to be paying for this crime for years to come, but it will never amount to one lost moment of joy or insight that a lead/mercury poisoned brain will never have. I hang my head in powerless rage when I see what the women and men and kids of this country are made to endure, a century after W.E.B. DuBois, as if he had never written; as if the Progressive Era (1900-1918) and the New Deal (1933-1940) had never happened; as if those shitty little bigots in grey had won the Civil War instead of getting their sanctimonious, slaveholding, fake-Xtian assess handed to them. And then these 3 words: President donald trump. It’s a question, whose correct answer is, “F*ck you, Ameri*a.” Who says that? Someone who loves what President John F. Kennedy, and his also-murdered fellow genuine Democrat Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY) routinely called "The United States":
