This post is for all the ignorant, unabashed racists out there. The ones that call the police on African Americans for having a BBQ in the park or the ones riding around town in their trucks proudly waving their Confederate flags hunting down a black man for jogging in his neighborhood. This post is for the cops who will talk and calmly subdue a white suspect who is wielding a weapon, but will kneel on the throat of a black man who was accused of forging a check. This is also for all the white people who sit on the sideline and do nothing as the rampant attacks on black people continue to escalate because it doesn’t affect you personally. My question is what is it about black people that scares you?
The Coronavirus not only overwhelmed out healthcare systems into complete failure it also rendered our economy useless. Stocks plummeted, jobs were lost and people are unable to afford the basic of necessities during this time of crisis. What we need to make an economic recovery happen and happen fast is some creative thinking. No longer will the trickle down economics be considered, it’s time to go way out there with ideas. Here are my 5 ways to bolster the economy:
With Congress set to approve a stimulus package because of the Coronavirus, no bailouts should be given to big businesses or industries. Their shady practices and contempt for their workers and working class alone should disqualify them, but those politcians love to bailout their buddies on Wall Street while continually screwing over Main Street. Bailout the people who deserve it not these corporations who make billions in profit, but now want a corporate handout.
For me the best analogy I can come up with to describe the Coronavirus pandemic is what happened to Asgard in the movie, “Thor Ragnarok.” In the movie the fire demon Surtur, wanted to cause Ragnarok to destroy Asgard. Perhaps the Coronavirus is Surtur and by causing Ragnarok it is destroying America.
