White America’s ‘undeclared war’ on black people


“Systemic violence” in the United States’ political system is the root cause of the current situation in the country, says an African American historian as anti- police sentiments over racial profiling of the black community peaks.
In an interview with Press TV on Sunday, Randy Short spoke of “an undeclared war that white America has against black people.”
Three African Americans were recently killed in the hands of US police recently while five cops were shot dead by another one, pushing the nation into a state of shock.
“All that’s happening now is a public manifestation of systemic violence of a corrupt racist judiciary and political system that does not recognize rights of human beings,” Short said.
America's big lie
The Washington-based researcher touched upon racial profiling of the black community in the US and around the world, saying “we’re 12.5 percent of the world’s incarcerated population.”
In the US, many black people are apprehended as part of the so-called war on drugs, which according to Short, is meant to target the black people.
“The war on drugs, which is in reality a war against blacks, is a justification to kill us,” said the African American activist.
With the current human rights situation in the US, Short argued that US claim on support for human rights across the globe is a sham.

Protesters face off with Baton Rouge police for a second night in a row on July 9, 2016 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
“White America is waging war on a defensive population that can’s fight back while it professes that it’s for freedom, fairness, and justice all over the world;  This is  a big lie.”
Amid massive protests over the killings of two black men in the US, a third one was killed early on Saturday.
According to the latest updates by Newsweek, “the circumstances that led Houston police to shoot and kill Alva Braziel remain murky.”
The 38-year-old was shot by Houston police forces after he allegedly delayed lowering the weapon he was pointing at the sky.
His death followed the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile in the hands of US police officers.
