  1. Affirmative Distraction: Elimination of Affirmative Action at U-Massachusetts
    Against The Current vol. 82

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    The west wind has blown east. The elimination of affirmative action in Texas, California, and Washington's public university systems seemed like a phenomenon isolated to highly competitive west-coast state universities—until February 1999, when the University of Massachusetts announced that it too would eliminate the use of race-based admissions policies and scholarship programs.
  2. Against School
    How public education cripples our kids, and why

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2003
    An essay by a retired teacher on the infantilization of children by the public school system. This intellectual history of US public school curiculum reveals that it was conceived as a democratic means to a reflexively obedient work force.
  3. American Primitive in Red, Black and White: Race and Class in the U.S.
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1989
    The centrality of race in the formation of the American working class, its inseparability from the question of class, can be stated very succinctly: in 1848 and 1968, when working-class upsurges exploded in Europe under the slogans of "socialism" and "communism", American working-class containment in the Democratic Party was exploded by the race question. This is the key to the Americanization of Marxism.
  4. Asian American Activism Stirring
    Against The Current vol. 91

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    For a brief but wonderful moment in 2000, the Ralph Nader/Winona LaDuke Presidential campaign drew widespread public attention to its central theme of restoring democracy by challenging corporate power. Speaking to thousands of supporters at “super rallies” and millions of television viewers, Nader hammered home the three general points that corporate power has:

  6. Black Women's Narratives of Slavery, the Civil War and Reconstruction
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    Anyone who has ever wondered how black people managed to struggle and survive the hideous tortures meted out during slavery and afterward would gain from reading these books. They offer inspiration to a new generation of fighters.
  7. Book Review: Kevin Anderson, Marx at the Margins (2010)
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Anderson’s argument is based on a careful and comprehensive reading of the writings of Marx (and, to the extent necessary, Engels) on: (1) the history, economics and politics of societies and nations outside Western Europe (but including Ireland); (2) movements of national liberation, as in Ireland, Poland and India; and (3) the relationship between ‘race’ and class in countries such as England and the United States.
  8. Booker's Place

    Resource Type: Film/Video
    First Published: 2012

  10. The changing meaning of race
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    If the proverbial anthropologist from Mars were to land in Britain today, he would probably regard us as schizophrenics when it comes to the question of race. He would find a population within which there is a general consensus that racism is morally abhorrent and yet is keen to define itself in terms of its ethnic or racial background.

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1969   Published: 1983

  13. Class and the African-American Leadership Crisis
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1996
    This market economy can't solve the real problems of African Americans. Worse, the scapegoating of society's most vulnerable members (immigrants, people of color, women and gays) is on the rise.

  16. Clinton Manipulates Language of Intersectionality to Preserve Support from Minority Voters 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    The presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton has been a master class in how to divorce economic issues from issues of race and gender by pushing the language of "intersectionality," which enables the political class to head off threats to their power and protect the status quo.
  17. The Cold War and the Civil Rights Movement
    For Black Liberation Through Socialist Revolution!

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    The mass mobilization of black people in the Southern civil rights movement, and the subsequent Northern ghetto rebellions, disrupted and challenged the racist American bourgeois order. It shattered the anti-Communist consensus and it paved the road for the mass protest movements that followed—against the U.S. dirty war in Vietnam, for the rights of women, gays, students and others.
  18. Coming Home to the Struggle
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    I became a political activist at the age of 12, when I marched for open housing in Evanston, Illinois. We lived next to the Black community in Evanston; African-American students made up 40% of my grade school. At the local YWCA girls club my sister and I were the only whites. The young Black women I became close to helped me overcome painful shyness. Later my father, a Methodist minister, was arrested trying to integrate churches in Jackson, Mississippi.

  27. David Roediger's Working Toward Whiteness
    Against The Current vol. 125

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    A disturbing aftermath of the pro-immigrant demonstrations recently held in dozens of cities across the United States, besides the obvious anti-immigrant backlash, has been the increase in Black/Brown tensions. Particularly alarming has been the way in which Latinos are being accused, not only by conservatives but by Progressives as well, of being the latest permutation of a long history of immigrant groups arriving to this country and making it, to quote Toni Morrison, “on the backs of Blacks.”

  29. Democracy for the Few 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1988   Published: 1995
    How does the U.S. political system work and for what purpose? What are the major forces shaping political life and how do they operate? Who governs in the United States? Who gets what, when, how, and why? Who pays and in what ways. These are the central questions investigated in this book.
  30. Dividing the Races to Benefit the Rich
    Prison Populism?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Race baiting broadcast agitators like Beck and Rush Limbaugh have their audiences believing the factually flawed foolishness that the reason they are falling behind economically is because the federal government is fawning over blacks lavishing them with unearned benefits. The reason for the loss of jobs, homes and dreams of comfortable futures driving white working class (and middle class) ire is not benefits to blacks but naked greed on Wall Street and in the suites of mega-corporations that triggered America's economic collapse.
  31. Django Unchained, or, The Help: How "Cultural Politics" Is Worse Than No Politics at All, and Why 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    On reflection, it's possible to see that Django Unchained and The Help are basically different versions of the same movie. Both dissolve political economy and social relations into individual quests and interpersonal transactions and thus effectively sanitize, respectively, slavery and Jim Crow by dehistoricizing them. The problem is not so much that each film invents cartoonish fictions; it's that the point of the cartoons is to take the place of the actual relations of exploitation that anchored the regime it depicts.
  32. The Elephant in the Room
    Against The Current vol. 136

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Much of the world is fascinated by the U.S. presidential election. The main reason is that the country may be ready to do something that most developed countries wouldn’t consider: electing a representative from an oppressed minority as head of government or state. (Try to imagine an Arab citizen of Israel or France as either country’s prime minister or president; or a British prime minister of South Asian descent.)

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2005
  34. From Jenner to Dolezal: One Trans Good, the Other Not So Much 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    As is ever clearer and ever more important to note, race politics is not an alternative to class politics; it is a class politics, the politics of the left-wing of neoliberalism. It is the expression and active agency of a political order and moral economy in which capitalist market forces are treated as unassailable nature. An integral element of that moral economy is displacement of the critique of the invidious outcomes produced by capitalist class power onto equally naturalized categories of ascriptive identity that sort us into groups supposedly defined by what we essentially are rather than what we do.

  37. Health Disparities By Race And Class: Why Both Matter
    Health Affairs, 24, no. 2 (2005): 343-352

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    This essay examines three competing causal interpretations of racial disparities in health. The first approach views race as a biologically meaningful category and racial disparities in health as reflecting inherited susceptibility to disease. The second approach treats race as a proxy for class and views socioeconomic stratification as the real culprit behind racial disparities. The third approach treats race as neither a biological category nor a proxy for class, but as a distinct construct, akin to caste. The essay points to historical, political, and ideological obstacles that have hindered the analysis of race and class as codeterminants of disparities in health.

  41. Inclusion or exclusion 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    People who advocate a vision of distinct communities that speak different languages, keep apart from each other, and communicate with the structures of the larger society only through interpreters, are doing more harm than good. What they are advocating is not diversity but entrenched division.
  42. Inequalities Are Unhealthy
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    The growing inequalities we are witnessing in the world today are having a very negative impact on the health and quality of life of its populations.
  43. Insurrectional Black Power CLR James on Race and Class
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    During the exhilarating and dangerous late 1960s and early 1970s, no world historical figure of older generations had a more militant defense of Black Power than CLR James. But it was always a vision within a context, and after all these years have passed (along with James himself who died in 1989), the context remains crucial.

    Volume One: Racial Oppression and Social Control

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1994

  46. Jai Bhim Comrade
    Resource Type: Film/Video
    First Published: 2011
    India’s Dalit (oppressed) castes were abhorred as “untouchables”. The film, shot over 14 years follows the music of protest of Maharashtra's Dalits. In an age of increasing bigotry and superstition, it is both a record of recent history as well as eloquent testimony to a tradition that has survived amongst the subaltern for thousands of years.

  49. Marx at the Margins 
    On Nationalism, Ethnicity, and Non-Western Societies

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2010
    Marx’s critique of capital was far broader than is usually supposed. To be sure, he concentrated on the labor-capital relation within Western Europe and North America. But at the same time, he expended considerable time and energy on the analysis of non-Western societies, as well as race, ethnicity, and nationalism.
  50. The Missing News 
    Filters and Blind Spots in Canada's Press

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2000
    Asks a number of questions, including: How well do the news media filter reality, for what purposes, through what processes and in whose interests? How do newspapers and TV stations choose what news is printed or aired, which letters will be published, or who will be accorded credibility?
  51. Mistaken Identity
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Historically, antiracists challenged both the practice of racism and the process of racialisation; that is, both the practice of discriminating against people by virtue of their race and the insistence that an individual can be defined by the group to which he or she belongs. Today's multiculturalists argue that to fight racism one must celebrate group identity. The consequence has been the resurrection of racial ideas and the imprisonment of people within their cultural identities. Racial theorists and multiculturalists, the French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut observes, have 'conflicting credos but the same vision of the world'. Both fetishise difference. Both seek to 'confine individuals to their group of origin'. Both undermine 'any possibility of natural or cultural community among peoples'. Challenging such a politics of difference has become as important today as challenging racism.

    First Published: 2007
    The humid air felt electric as the sun ascended over the hundreds of buses idling a 20-mile stretch of Louisiana Route 49, the gateway to the rural hometown of the Jena 6. It was 6 AM, September 20, 2007 — the day Mychal Bell was initially scheduled to be sentenced for his role in the beating of a white classmate — and northeast central Louisiana, on the border of Mississippi, was looking anything but sleepy.
  54. Multiculturalism or World Culture? 
    On a "Left"-Wing Response to Contemporary Social Breakdown

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1991   Published: 2000
    Post-modernists are profoundly bored by any questions of economics and technology which cannot be connected to cultural differences. The implicit agenda of the multiculturalists is to present the values associated with intensive capitalist accumulation as "white male", so "non-white" peoples such as Japanese or Koreans who currently embody those values with a greater fervour than most "whites" are ignored.

  58. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - June 18, 2015
    Corruption

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2015
    Corruption - or at least some types of corruption - are much in the news, with the ongoing scandals in the Canadian Senate and the recent U.S. targeting of the Swiss-based football federation FIFA for alleged bribery. In this issue, we look at these and other forms of corruption. Diana Johnstone writes about the double standards displayed by U.S. institutions, which happily target enemies and rivals, while ignoring the much greater corruption that underlies the power structures in Washington. We feature an article detailing how much money U.S. Senators received from corporations prior to their vote on the TPP negotiations, as well as materials on criminal conduct by some of the world's biggest banks, and an article on the work of investigative journalists in exposing corruption.

    Against The Current vol. 89

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    Amidst all the turmoil of the Reform Party this summer, Pat Buchanan named Ezola Foster as his running mate for his third bid at the presidency. For a man who has openly questioned the holocaust, and battled to save white America, choosing a Black woman is a little puzzling.
  61. People of Color Talk is Cheap
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    A concept like ‘People of Color’, which obscures privilege and hierarchy within the racial system itself, can often make work harder for antiracists.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1998
    OVER THE PAST few years, South Africa has undergone the dramatic political transition from apartheid to non-racial democracy. As one might expect in a country where racial and economic inequality is so stark, dismantling the economic structures of apartheid has proven more difficult.
  65. Race and Class: African Americans in a Sick System
    Against The Current vol. 142

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009

    First Published: 1999
    In the mid-1970s Boston was a major battle ground for equal education in the public schools. Boston's inner-city schools—as in most urban areas—were less-equipped and in worse condition than those in white neighborhoods.
  68. Race and Class: Downturn Undermines Black "Middle Class"
    Against The Current vol. 139

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Although the historic election of president Barack Obama has led to big cheers in the Black community and society in general, the reality for the vast majority of African Americans is growing uncertainty if not joblessness and poverty. Cities like Detroit, and the Rust Belt in the Midwest, are reeling under the blows of the recession and structural changes, including overseas outsourcing and shifting work to nonunion companies in “right to work” states.
  69. Race and Class in Civil War Mississippi
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The poor whites of Mississippi who fought the Confederacy alongside slaves did so because of working class values that they shared with slaves. The fact that poor whites may have believed some racist lies about blacks that constituted the dominant ideas of the day is not nearly as important or significant as the fact that their working class values led them to ally with slaves to fight the racist ruling class. Racism came from the upper class, and anti-racism came from the working class--black and white.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    There is a sinister aspect of the attacks by the far right against President Barack Obama that does not sit well with me, and with a vast majority of African Americans and other ethnic minorities, no matter our political or ideological point of view.
  72. Race and Class: The Wealth Gap
    Against The Current vol. 88

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    Politicians and government officials point to the historic low unemployment level in the Black community as signs of a strong economy and a future where whites and African Americans will finally have an opportunity for an equal share of the American dream. While it is true that long-term unemployment for the African-American population is in the single digits for the first time, the wealth gap between white and Black families continues to widen. According to government statistics Black households' wealth average one-twelfth that of white households.
  73. Race and Class: What About the Working Poor?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    One striking feature of political debate in the country today is that — while every commentator, pundit and political observer talks about and focuses on the concerns of the super-rich and the middle class — few ever talk about the plight of the disadvantaged, those on food stamps and welfare and particularly the working poor.

    Against The Current vol. 111

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    I found the headline of the May 17 Business Week article on the 50th anniversary of the famous Brown v. Board of Education landmark Supreme Court ruling, that "separate but equal" schools were unconstitutional, most revealing. "A Bittersweet Birthday," it said, declaring "Decades of progress on integration have been followed by disturbing slippage."

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    In the aftermath of the mass shooting of police officers in Dallas, Texas on July 7, 2016, the American media and political establishment has sought to portray the police killings of unarmed people and widespread protests against police violence as proof of deepening and unbridgeable racial divisions in the United States.

  81. Racism and Responsibility
    Against The Current vol. 133

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Malik Miah writes in Against the Current 131, “[Orlando] Patterson, and others in Black academia and middle-class civil rights organizations, are right to point to internal problems within the Black community. But the ‘take personal responsibility’ critique targets only a secondary factor. It has little to do with addressing racist attitudes still prevalent among many whites, even as a large majority of whites and society oppose blatant racial discrimination.”
  82. Racism and Structural Solutions
    Against The Current vol. 135

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    When Barack Obama raised the specter of race in a March 18 speech that went far beyond what one would expect from the Democratic Party, some of us on the left were hopeful. Since the 1970s, race-speech in presidential campaigns has been increasingly buried in coded language like, “welfare moms,” “inner-city,” “street crime,” “states’ rights” and so on. We all welcomed a shift away from such discourse. By dealing a bit more squarely with the issue, the speech had the potential to ignite a national debate that could grapple with the “racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years,” as Obama put it.

    Against The Current vol. 114

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    Over the past decade, students around the country have fought a conservative backlash on college campuses that has sought to reverse many gains won in the 1970s and 1980s. Along with attacks on labor studies, women's studies, and progressive student organizations, this has also included efforts to roll back affirmative action policies and programs for students of color.
  84. Racist Undercurrents in the "War on Terror"
    Against The Current vol. 125

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Although it is rarely mentioned in the so-called war on terrorism, racism is an undercurrent in every action and decision taken by the Bush-Cheney government. It is a dangerous element that has long-term implications.
  85. Religion and the Rise of Labor and Black Detroit
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Historians and other scholars have given Detroit plentiful attention, including some very important books, yet in this vital new study Angela Dillard manages to approach the Motor City’s past in several crucial yet previously neglected ways. What’s most valuable about the book is her attempt to encompass such subjects as race, labor radicalism, Black religion and the civil rights movement all in one narrative.
  86. A Reluctant Memoir of the '50s and '60s
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    I have been asked to write a memoir that would give a sense of the old left/new left realities of the 1950s and ‘60s. That seems quite odd to me (why would I be writing such a thing?), until I look in the mirror and see this old guy looking back at me. As I reflect, it does seem to me that I went through a lot of experience, met a lot of people, and perhaps learned from all that…So I will share some of my story.

    Against The Current vol. 133

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    George Fish raises an important point about the “taking personal responsibility” debate taking place within the Black community, especially at the academic and leadership level. But his criticism of my argument that it is a “secondary factor” to prevalent institutional racism is way off.
  89. Revisiting 'Black Power,' Race and Class
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1967
    There is no such suprahistorical abstraction as racism. In each historical period it was something different. It was one thing during slavery, another during Reconstruction, and quite something else today. To further insist that "Whatever their political persuasion," "All Whites" are "part of the collective white America" so that the U.S. has "180 million racists" is to blur the class line which cuts across the race divisions as well as to muffle the philosophy of total freedom which has created a second America.
  90. The Revolutionary Answer to the Negro Problem in the USA
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1948

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    Solidarity doesn’t exist, like a material object, the way tables and chairs do. Solidarity is the confidence we can sometimes have that others, sharing with us a common enemy and a core of overlapping aspirations, will have our back when we find ourselves under attack, or when we need their support to win a crucial struggle. We don't stumble upon solidarity when poring over statistics; we won't find it by comparing our pay stubs with that of the worker down the street. We forge it in common struggle

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    On December 5, slightly less than half of South Africa's registered electorate went to the polls, and Thabo Mbeki's ruling African National Congress (ANC) emerged with just under sixty percent support -- down from the two-thirds received in the 1994 and 1999 national elections -- and control of all major cities aside from Cape Town.
  97. Stanley Crouch, Neocon or Ellisonian?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1997
    Crouch clearly feels isolated within progressive circles, but it is the Left that most desperately needs to retain the message about building a cohesive democratic society. With that instinct for improvisation and bricolage which Crouch and his gurus most admire about Americans, we must read Crouch closely and adapt whatever points in his work we find correct and useful.

  99. The Survival of Education
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    I remember reading Jonathan Kozol’s Savage Inequalities as a student activist, when becoming a teacher was an abstract and somewhat romanticized idea floating around my head. I was moved by the politically sharp but also deeply humanizing way in which Kozol documented how institutional racism and class inequality shape the experiences of students in American schools, a reality that all of us who have been educated in this country have experienced first-hand in one way or another.

    First Published: 2001
    “Never Trust a Son of Bush” was one of many signs at George W. Bush's presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C. on January 20. Some 25,000 marched in Washington and 15,000 rallied in San Francisco. The D.C. protest was the largest one at a presidential inauguration since 1973 -- at President Nixon's second term.
  103. Triple Jeopardy and the Struggle
    Against The Current vol. 134

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Being bi- and female in the Asian movement also means putting in double, triple, quadruple time. The Third World Women’s Alliance, an offshoot of the Black Women’s Liberation Committee of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, dubbed this our “triple jeopardy” dilemma as women of color who have our hands, heads, hearts in multiple movements because of our race, gender and class status.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    The broad outlines of the crisis of the U.S. labor movement -— sharply declining union density, concession bargaining, failures to organize the growing non-union manufacturing and service sectors, the labor officialdom’s reliance on institutionalized labor-management cooperation schemes — are familiar to readers of Against the Current. The roots of this crisis — the dominance of bureaucratic business unionism and the weakness of rank-and file-led reform movements from below — are also well-known.
  105. Vote as the Class You Are, Not the Race You Aren't
    Scott, Frank

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Many upper middle-professional class members of society who truly wish for a more just nation are either helpless to, totally incapable of, or have little desire to confront real power or create social transformation beyond electing one or another member of their class to represent their interests on the board, the council, the congress or at the White House. And that class includes more multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-racial and gender fluid people than ever before. Hooray?

    Analyzes the changes in health conditions and quality of life in the populations of developed and developing countries over the past 30 years, resulting from neoliberal policies developed by many governments and promoted by international agencies.

    First Published: 2008
    Once the government assumes the task of separating citizens from "impossible subjects," historian Mae Ngai points out, "the border" is everywhere, not just between countries. Thus, the border has come to the Midwest. In the two years since the immigrant rights marches of spring 2006, there have been federal ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) raids of workplaces, especially meatpacking plants, in Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska.
  109. The White Cop and the Black Professor
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Police are trained to act as authoritarian thugs when they are dealing with people who are not obviously of, or loyal to, the very wealthy elite who rule the nation. The police are trained to enforce law and order in an unjust and unequal society, and a big part of doing this requires that they make ordinary people obey them out of fear.

What is the line of argument?
  112. The Writings of David Roediger
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1997
    Roediger criticizes Marxists for too often reducing racial discrimination to conflicts over resources, such as jobs or housing, that are manipulated by a society's upper classes in order to divert attention from the real sources of inequality. Such a focus, he argues, ignores the manner in which race and racial consciousness is integrally tied to class formation and working-class consciousness.
