America Radiates Violence: Challenging the Politics of Isolated Incidents
Henry Giroux | counterpunch.org | 2021-03-26
In light of the tragic violence that has unfolded once again in the form of mass shootings in Boulder, Colorado and Atlanta, Georgia, it becomes clear that another pandemic defines the United States–a pandemic of violence. The figures speak for themselves. Since the Columbine shooting in 1999, there have been 114 mass shootings with 1300 victims. Moreover, as one national report notes "Every day, more than 100 Americans are killed with guns and more than 230 are shot and wounded." All of this happening in a country in which there are more guns than people and where laws are enacted that make it easier to buy a g…

Binoy Kampmark | counterpunch.org | 2021-03-26

National Day Of Action March 27: Stop Anti-Asian Violence
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2021-03-25
The ANSWER Coalition stands in solidarity with the Asian community in the midst of the horrific, racist and misogynist massacre that took place in Atlanta on March 16th. Six Asian women were among the eight shot to death at point blank range. | The alarming rise in hate crimes over the past year correlates to an increasingly hostile U.S. foreign policy towards China. The opportunistic scapegoating of China during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the intensity by which China is deemed the enemy and adversary of the United States, has driven a widespread Sinophobic sentiment nationally.
