First of all, FTR, on paper it shows that the US has bever been in the lead in "charitable" $ giving to other countries, but is pretty far down the list.
important points that too many people miss and that is a problem. A lot of folks still believe the U.S. gives too much in foreign aid.
many of our corporations have actually abused third world nations around the globe - assisted by U.S. policy. We have intervened in the democracy of sovereign nations around the world in harmful ways as well. In places like Iran, Chili and Haiti to name but a few.
And it is long overdue that the left should unify on a whole host of issues. Truthful discussions regarding racial injustice and inequality are long overdue. We need to continue to stay active and fight hard to take back the congress in 2018 - and not stop there. We have a long way to go on a lot of policy issues. Just getting Democrats back into power is not going to fix things. We need to take the money out of politics and fight for policies that support the environment and all people first.
Second the "foreign policy" of the US corporate state is purely imperialist, neo-liberal, that is, "we want their stuff" their resources and "we are going to get it" whatever it takes. Just like we(they) did with the Native Americans, etc etc. So, the US has conducted mostly proxy wars and over thrown democratically elected gov'ts all aroubd the globe for decades as a matter of course--to free the way for US corporate takeover of economies. Thus, in the words of Chomsky, the US has been, post WWII, the #1 sponsor of state "terror"(war) globally. It is not a matter of racial inequality, it's a matter of seizing resources and getting those people out of the way, regardless of their race. The US didn't conduct a proxy war in Nicaragua because they are darker skin people, they did it because N was going heavy socialist(Sandinistas) and were kicking out US corp/investment and nationalizing it. That is the consistent theme.
In capitalism/imperialism, it is a CLASS war, fundamentally, not a race war. The wealthy powerful rulers dominate the ruled--home and abroad-- so your not going to get $ out of politics anytime soon--it's the nature of the beast. The fact that other people often have darker skin it simply a convenienience and that's where they play the race card against poplulations. Early industrial Europe invented racism as they were pillaging Africa to help get the local white poplulations behind it. Same as they play the race card here when, say, they are pillaging the Mid East.
