If you’re a middle-class white person quietly doing your time serving the machine of America, you probably don’t care very much about the militarization of our police force. You’re white. You have a 401K. You work hard all day and come home to your little cocoon at night where you binge on Netflix. You’re safe. Things are good. Predictable. Comfortable. Convenient. That is, until the revolution comes. Then you’ll care. Because it won’t just be an ethnic thing anymore.

What is this foolishness? A revolution will never happen here. This is America.
