Chris Cutrone on race and class

anti-black racism » The Last Marxist: "There is a great historical paradox in that the worst, most thorough-going historic racism in modern history, that of the condition of blacks in the Jim Crow-era Southern United States, coincided with the historic height of working class political movement and empowerment."

  1. Only those who have never traveled can consider the US the most or worst country for racism. I have witnessed gypsies being rousted in the subways for "riding while Romany" in Europe, and the racism of Asian nations is incredible. America is not exceptional for the good OR bad; merely different.
