Because we use a laser cutter and laser cutters are notoriously hard to come by in the U.S., tattoo art has gone global through mass-production methods, such as micro-pressing on a plastic sheet and then the laser cutting.
I’ve been writing a lot lately about the need to fix problems of racial discrimination and the social consequences of social inequality. I also discuss some of the more “progressive” aspects of the current Democratic Party platform including making sure the party adopts a more “progressive” stance on civil rights (and the right to vote) rather than using “race-to-the-wall” racial language. And so it is time to talk about a little thing, a little thing that’s been on my mind for quite some time but it’s time to finally say it publicly: the need to end slavery for the good of the nation.
This isn’t an easy thing to bring up when you’re talking to people who are not familiar with the history and culture of the United States, so I hope we can all get an understanding of why it’s so important, right?
For those who haven’t been keeping up with the modern history of America, slavery is a very simple reality of our modern era. America has always been a nation of slaves. You may think your ancestors never made that choice, because you’ve never heard of slavery, but that is an incorrect view. If you were born before the Civil War, chances are you’ve experienced something that many of us have. You haven’t lived a day without slavery happening to you or your family. Maybe you were born into a slave family. That would be an even more accurate perspective, but the reality is that most of us are born in that role.
Most of the land and labor you can imagine was stolen from African people by those who were supposed to care for it. This is not only our own, but also those of other nations. It was the European colonists who first moved into the New World. They brought with them slaves and other goods. It was the European nations who made the first land grab to take the land from the native population that would become known as the Aztecs. And it was these colonial powers, in the West Indies, who forcibly began the process of turning the native peoples of this land into “peculiar breeds” (as the Spanish put it) by keeping them in the Americas in a system that they called slavery on which they would have continued to sell their labor
