But I need a place to put my ideas into practice. I need a forum to provide an opportunity to explore and theorize and support my idealism. A place to get experience and methodology. A place where I can find individuals working together for a greater good. A place to exercise both my vocation as well as my romanticism.

In five years after they leave prison 77% of them will… Continue

"Make America White Again" looks stronger after this addition... For more info access ny political maven in the know:

American Racism Manifesto

by Matt Moore

I.      Introduction - Significance of Race in America

concept created by white Europeans to make themselves the higher race over those of the

indigenous peoples that they encountered during the period of European colonization and

imperialism. Race is an institution, a systemic order that benefitted white Europeans and put…


My Hx of Violence

Roland Teed was some kind of mixed breed, a veritable freak in our high school of whitebread plainness.  Two years my senior, half Chinese, but broad shouldered with bowed legs and about my height, Roland was already an adult.  When he stalked the halls of our school he was usually tailed by one or two nondescript guys who’d grin and flinch everytime Roland said something.  There was talk he practiced martial arts.  Previously I had no occasion to think much upon him or his…
