Escape goats for dollars

Criminals are not exclusive to race, national origin, gender, or culture. Somehow, those who have caused poverty, wars, the violation of civil rights, the influx of drugs and weapons since the 80’s, and every single economic crisis in our country have managed to convince so many people that the poor, the homeless, and immigrants are to blame.

It is the big financial institutions with their illegal conspiracies to take our money, the military industrial complex with their war profiteering, and the oil companies which poison our land and water that are the guilty. Yet, here we are again, not having learned anything from the past, still blaming our problems on the poor, the minorities, and the undocumented immigrants. Here we go again, jumping from one scape goat to another, until the passions run wild and we allow attrocities against those who have suffered the most.
