financial sector elite routinely perform to enrich

Muhammad Rasheed - Now that Matt Taibbi (Griftopia) and Greg Palast (The Best Democracy Money Can Buy) have revealed with their top notch (and rage-inducing) investigative journalism how the 1% grifter class actually operate in the modern day, there’s no excuse for falling for the transparent propaganda schemes like the ones that inspired today’s cartoon. We can reasonably trust that any and everything the elite among the political/business class does is solely to support the White Supremacist Ideology, enriching themselves with anti-Black systemic racism at the expense of the people. Palast’s reports demonstrated the extent of the crimes as the financial sector teamed with their cronies in Washington D.C. to suppress Black and Latinx Democratic Party votes by evicting them from their homes when they couldn’t pay the hefty balloon payment mortgage payments while the companies got wealthier from multiple angles from the length & breadth of the long con’s scope.
Black people have never recovered from the financial ruin of the Great Recession, the wealth gap between the races is wider than ever, yet the Trump administration is still committed to undoing all the reform band-aid efforts put in place by previous administrations to ease their hardships. The rhetoric narrative from the Black community’s political rivals is that they “just want free handouts they don’t deserve” and Blacks should just forgive barbaric violent attacks from white racists because the chronic poverty in Black neighborhoods caused by the same anti-Black systemic racism triggers desperate struggling Black people to attack other desperate struggling Black people.
When the Obama administration added the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009 to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as part of the Reconciliation Act of 2010 amendment, it actually removed the big banks as middle men in the student loan process so that funds would then be administered directly to students from the government. The banks of course lost a great deal of money from this very patriotic, pro-Americans citizen law and they responded with FURY.
We know for a fact by their consistent behavior that the 1% grifter class that runs the country does not care about the American people in general, and Black people in specific. We are at war, in the strongest sense of the word, and we absolutely need to move smartly with focus and determination to steer the nation in the direction it needs to be in by force in order to align it to its ideals.
