Interest: The Unnatural Disaster

Emma Dixon writes about the role institutionalized racism played in the unnecessary losses suffered by African Americans both during and after hurricane Katrina and there's much truth to what she says.

But, you must look beyond skin to understand the whole truth behind the looming economic disaster we all face today.

There is no doubt that African Americans suffer disproportionately from poverty and lack of education in America.

But, this results from historical economic inequities that were not only never compensated as they should have been, but more importantly have been systematically exploited by our monetary system until this day.

We are easily divided by the color of our skins, which makes it an easy vice to target; racism is almost universally deplored.

But, classism is not. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Isn't that the way it's always been?

Isn't that the way it's supposed to be?

NO; absolutely not; not if you have a just monetary system.

A just monetary system does NOT give exclusive control of the money supply to a few entities and allow them to exploit everyone else's need for money by charging them INTEREST on its use.

That is economic discrimination at its worst. We must end it in order to save our children.
