So often, we get caught up with race that we overlook class. While fighting racism is very important in the day-to-day struggles (because no one can think longterm if they’re not alive), we have to infuse class into the narrative, with the understanding that those of us who are in the bottom 80% are much more alike than we are different. But, because the powers that be want to keep us at odds, race has been put into play as a distractor.
Anyway, check this episode out and let me know what you think about the the intersectionality between the class and race narratives.
