The passage of Arizona’s racist SB 1070 law and the climate of escalating anti-Muslim bigotry are two examples of how racism in the United States is on the rise.

In the midst of an economic crisis, part of the ruling class wants to scapegoat immigrants for all the ills of society. Attacks on the Muslim community have been used to justify decades of bloody U.S. intervention in the Middle East.

For African Americans, inspite of the heroic gains of the Civil Rights Movement, racism and inequity persist. The unemployment rate for African Americans is double that of whites; incarceration rates, tied to never-ending police-harassment of Black and Latino youth, continue to skyrocket; Black students attempting to get a college education are facing rising tuition and racist admissions policies.

The Peace and Freedom Party has not formally endorsed this event.
