• Episode 35: From the Archives: Dunayevskaya on the Independence of the Black Struggle from the “General Class Struggle”

    The co-hosts discuss notes made by Raya Dunayevskaya in preparation for a 1946 debate with Ernest Rice McKinney. He argued that class oppression is “primary” while racial oppression is “secondary”––a view that has resurfaced in recent years in Jacobin magazine and elsewhere)––and he opposed an independent Black movement distinct from the “labor movement.” Dunayevskaya sharply disagreed.

    The episode’s current-events segment is a discussion of the implications of the failed Capitol Insurrection by Trumpites and other white nationalists.
