WSWS WAFFLES ON THE RACE ISSUE AGAIN by Nixakliel

WSWS WAFFLES ON THE RACE ISSUE AGAIN.

Nixakliel - 08/14/2014 - 06:18

2 of my biggest issues I have w white Marxist-Leninists / Communists-Socialists [leaving aside their pushing atheism]- is their often curious positions when it come to Black Nationalism / Pan-Africanism & also re race vis-a-vis class. WSWS did a report on the shooting of unarmed Black youth Michael Brown- yet curiously FAILED to even mention in the entire article that Brown was Black in a mainly Black suburb of St Louis, & the cop was almost certainly white as is most of the town's police-force. The WSWS article then made the bogus claim that Brown's shooting at the hand of that white cop is all about class [technically it could be argued that the cop & his victim are both in the same class]- as it critiqued the usual suspect publicity seekers [some say race-pimps] Revs Al [the snitch] & Jesse- hyped as the new Black leaders by the lame-stream [set-up as 'Straw{black}Men' ] just to be castigated by the likes of both FOX Noise & WSWS. Some how WSWS fails to see that when it comes to rank & file Blacks in the USA, the issue of both Race & class is closely & inextricably intertwined. I wonder why? And this is not new- it's been the Marxist-Leninist camp's position since at-least the Garvey era.
