White Supremacy: America’s Default Setting, Pt. 1 White Supremacy: America’s Default Setting, Pt. 1Tweet Quote Who and What We Are The United States is the wealthiest, most powerful country in human history. This statement is not hyperbole. The sun never sets on the sphere of our influence. That influence is based on our ability to project our military might or strangle nearly any nation with unilateral economic sanctions. We have very few voluntary friends, much less true allies.

The Struggle of Dealing With Allies

The Struggle of Dealing With Allies I am frustrated and exhausted and in part because of the work needed to deal with allies. The struggle for social justice is an all-encompassing and overwhelming endeavor.
