Do the ideas of equality and freedom of the people BELONG to Marx and to socialists, and hence white people???
This is imperialism in its ultimate form: Use eurocentric ideology to make sense of the diverse and complex reality of people of color.
Marxism is an ideology of CLASS that IGNORES the tremendous impact of WHITE SUPREMACY on the reality of PoC around the world. So it is imperialist and erroneous to say the least!! Sankara’s main obstacles were debt slavery, western pressures against stable government in Africa and democracy and neo-colonialism, yet his work is filed under Marxism as if it has ANYTHING in common with European workers revolution of the 19 and 20th centuries!!
White supremacy is the leading force in the oppression of most PoC around the world before class and labeling EVERY revolution of PoC as merely socialist and Marxist erases this fact!!
Because he utilized Marxist and Socialist methods. Simple. He made his nation VERY self-reliant which is understandable because the French were exploiting the shit out of it. And he served his own nation’s interests first, second and third. If he is neither Marxist nor Socialist, then what is he? Maybe a Populist? I know he was Pan-African.
So fighting for a more egalitarian society and against the ravage of exploitative capitalism is an idea that forever BELONG to Marxists and Socialists right?? They just own those ideas or what?? And anyone fighting for that is just copying them??
You can’t really dismiss “Marxism” or “Socialism” as “upholding whiteness” without any proper evidence. It’s not to say that either of them are the only solutions, because it is true that we shouldn’t judge people by what they say but by what they do, but let’s be realistic: White Supremacy is absolutely incompatible with Marxism, Socialism or Communism and that isn’t up for debate. If you think there’s a link between them, you need evidence, not just “I know” or “I am X.” Because anyone can just say that, even a white person.
To deny the role of racism as the key factor in the oppression of PoC is indeed “upholding whiteness”!! I don’t see which kind of proper proof you need to understand something this basic.
If you’re assuming that I’m in denial of racism, think again. I’m not as dumb as you think I am. No, it’s NOT that basic at least the way you presented it. ANYONE can just call Marxism a “denial of racism.” Racism towards blacks and minorities IS prevalent in the world. And that shit needs to be addressed 24/7.
The racial hierarchy will always trumps the class system!
Jane Elliott-styled anti-racism is always welcome. But I can tell you know know nothing about anti-racism. Racial issues are JUST as important as class issues. In fact, they’re very much tied together.
Thank you for reminding again why as a black woman I decide to distance myself from people like you and your movement!! I am telling you that white Marxists and socialists have been denying the racial struggle of PoC yet they have no problem exploiting our struggle to make their point, you dismiss my experience as simple “I know” or “I am X.” and as ask for “proper evidence”?? Since my experience as a person who has to deal with racism is not good enough, what kind of proof do you need??
None of what you’re saying means a thing without evidence. Why do you think white people who cry “reverse racism” or “I’m being oppressed” are being dismissed for their BS? Because they provide no proof that whites are being persecuted (and we can all agree that whites never EVER suffered as much as PoCs have). Stop paying lipservice to “common sense.” You’re better than this.
FUCK YOU white communist. Unlike you, revolution and resistance are not simple hobbies for me but my survival depends on it!!
Instead of bitching about how everyone is being “racist,” get off your ass and do something. I’ve donated to causes, signed petitions. You can talk the talk but can you walk the walk?
Nice try, but you’re going to need a lot more than “common sense” to out me as a “defender of white supremacy.”
If you can conflate the fact that Marxists - like you - have been denying the role of both racism and sexism and appropriating the struggles of PoC with “Marxism a “denial of racism.” you are indeed as dumb as I thought you were. Marx’s ideology had nothing to do with that and everything to do with class struggle in EUROPE!! His ideology is now being used by white men STARVED OF REVOLUTION - like you- to promote their own interests by exploitating PoC’s struggle around the world yet erasing the role of racism in OUR oppression!
“Jane Elliott-styled anti-racism is always welcome” Yeah I know since as a black person, my own anti-racism is not enough, my actions, ONCE AGAIN, have to be interpreted through a white person’s ideology, just like any revolution around the world has to be interpreted through white revolutionary ideologies despite the fact that white people and especially white men are the ones oppressing everyone on this planet. My bad!!
“But I can tell you know know nothing about anti-racism. Racial issues are JUST as important as class issues. In fact, they’re very much tied together.” Who the fuck are you you fucking RACIST piece of shit?? You told me you identify as a white man but see nothing wrong with patronising me about something YOU WOULD NEVER GO THROUGH!! How fucking dare you asshole?? Have you ever been stopped and searched for no reason?? Have you ever been denied a job offer because of the colour of your skin?? What make you think that a fucking racist dickhead like you can tell me WHAT IS OR IS NOT RACIST??
“Why do you think white people who cry “reverse racism” or “I’m being oppressed” are being dismissed for their BS?” Yeah, because pointing the racism of people like you who claim to be for equality but have no fucking respect for the voice of people THEY ARE ACTIVELY OPPRESSING is just the same as white people whining about “reverse racism” right??
“Instead of bitching about how everyone is being “racist,” get off your ass and do something. I’ve donated to causes, signed petitions. You can talk the talk but can you walk the walk?”
FUCK YOU WHITE PIECE OF SHIT, FUCK YOU!!
You are the problem here!! You are the engine behind racism!! You have donated to causes so you want a fucking cookie for it?? Racism is MY LIFE!! I don’t just think I have thrown few coins there so I have done my share, while at the same time trying to DENY THE AUTHENCITY OF MY EXPERIENCE AS A PoC. You are one of the many faces of white supremacy and never think for a second that because you can put on your “I am a Marxist and I know more about PoC’s struggle so I am the best to save them and my opinions on racism prime on theirs” t-shirt that you are nothing else than a white supremacist!
Where is your proof that I’m a racist? I’ll say it in bold and italics:
Where is your proof?
You better be fucking trolling.
