Why White Supremacy Means White MALE Supremacy

[col. writ. 2/11/18] © 2018 by Mumia Abu-Jamal When Donald Trump lamented at the loss of one of his White House employees’ career, a bomb of female protests went off, for he (not surprisingly) ignored the suffering of his employee’s ex-wives. The only real surprise here was, why the surprise? After the Roy Moore debacle, of a US Senate candidate’s Lolita complex (as in a hankering for young girls), who can plead 'surprise'? Only someone who hasn’t really been paying attention. Trump’s central program is to somehow [...]

The Missing Message in the Women’s March By Cindy Sheehan & Rick Sterling  https://resumen-english.org/2018/01/the-missing-message-in-the-womens-march/ Editors of Resumen LatinoAmericano: The large women’s marches that took place in the US to mark a year of the Trump Administration were primarily organized by elements of the Democratic Party. The energy in the streets was strong and positive but the political message was to channel that into Dems winning back congress in the 2018 mid term elections.
