A blanket term for the U.S. ideological state apparatus coined in the 1960's by Black Panther Party leader, Bobby Seale. In Seale's own words, the pig power structure is composed of "the corporate money rich and the racist jive politicians and the lackeys, as we used to call them, for the government who perpetuates all this exploitation and racism."
The only way that the world is ever going to be free is when the youth of this country moves with every principle of human respect and with every soft spot we have in our hearts for human life, in a fashion that lets the pig power structure know that when people are racistly and fascistically attacked, the youth will put a foot in their butts and make their blood chill.
