A shared comment. Here's something i wrote a while back on African-American Federal Tax Liberation.  The reason why we have so many Fergusons in Amerikkka is due to the perpetual cycle of poverty, taxation without representation, income inequality and unequal wealth distribution - all contributed to the legacy of slavery whether one wants to admit this or not. One possible solution to rectify these systemic conditions is revising the federal tax code. AFRICAN-AMERICANS SHOULD NOT BE PAYING FEDERAL TAXES. Period. Black people paying federal taxes is truly absurd when you think about it. Almost 300 years of free black labor catapualted this nation into the economic engine it is today and now African-Americans must pay federal taxes on top of our free labor. That's double the punishment. Why do you think so many of these corporations want to move overseas? Because they don’t want to pay taxes. They understand completely the economic benefit of not paying federal taxes. It's estimated African-Americans p ...
