Poor, yes; angry, yes; confused enough by racism/white supremacy to even kill each other; but, no so far gone as to be decadent.
This is an example of white patriarchal culture and the behavior it introduced into Africa and continue to introduce into our communities whether the Brazilian Rain Forest or Ward 7, SE, Washington, DC. These pictures were taken in the Safeway in one of DR’S poorest wards.
It’s reminiscent of the decadence of Rome & Pompeii…which is said to have caused the ruins of both cities.
And, there seems to be little to no evidence of similar behavior in the Matriarchal cultures of non-white people.
