Racism & Class
Racism and class. Different things surely?
Whilst the genteel casual racism of the upper and middle classes is not as obvious as the seething hate filled face of the EDL, it is equally important to challenge it.
Should the working class solidify as one they would see they have a common enemy. The one percent, the ruling class use racism as a way of dividing the proletariat. It is no coincidence the press are desperate to divide us along any lines they can.
Racism, religious divides, all keep the feudal classes at their feet. The creation of a group of similar classed people to form a “common enemy” has been used for centuries, while the minds of the many are controlled and shaped by the minds of the few, we must fight harder and louder to overcome the clammering hatred.
The battle is on the cusp, America has a divisive imbecile in its seat of power. In France the National Front mounted its first serious challenge for power, and in Britain the UKIP Tory alliance has made this country a scared and inward looking little Britain. However, things are brighter than the dark days of the sixties and seventies.
What the right deem political correctness gone mad, is in fact a zero tolerance approach to oppressing minorities, it’s not just racism that divides. Homophobia, ablism all divide people, marginalise them. From DPAC to the Black Revs. From Class War to Antifa. United we are a formidable force. Many of our enemy can only be defeated on the streets, the diehard fascists can normally not be educated. But the middle ground between activists needs a different approach, an outreach. An education. This is becoming as important as fighting the enemy on the streets, as well as our warriors we need a new breed of non judgemental educators, people willing to sit and explain. To reach out to the refugees and put an arm around them welcoming them.
To reach out to the oppressed and become one.
Together we are strong!
