Excerpt:


"We Can't Breathe" is certainly about murderous police violence, but also so much more -- the entire matrix of structural racism in the United States economy and its gerrymandered, voter-suppressing political system. That's why the dying gasps of Eric Garner have become the banner of a new civil and human rights uprising, perhaps even more dramatically than "We Are the 99%" drove the Occupy movement’s spirit of protest against the financial gangsters.
