vul-va:

I am tired of listening to people tell me that “the system is falling apart.” The system is not falling apart. The system is functioning the way it was intended to function. Normally the political order functions more discreetly and complicated so that you cannot view any of its abuse so quickly and transparently. Right now you are seeing its brutal mechanism in the open, that’s all. This is a reality for those who are not rich/white or both.
