Tools of The Great America Double Think: Audre Lorde

In her book, "Sister Outsider" Audre Lorde, responds to the article "Angry Black Feminist" written by Robert Staples. Audre lays out the tools of the Great American Double Think.

1.  Blame the VICTIM.

2.  Divide and CONQUER.

3.  Keep the people OPPRESSED with the master's Concerns.

I find that Ms. Lorde is correct in her assessment. At every level, the American Machine deploys said tools, to maintain white Supremacy, to maintain black Inferiority, and in that way, the sort of CAPITALISM, that really isn't capitalism at all, that keeps the masses at bay financially, poor, and overwrought  prevails again and again.
