OK, this will take more than a minute to read, and I apologize. Some of you will move on quickly, but I urge you not to. This is an important and smart piece with real consequences for movement making—it’s about building a socialist movement centered in anti-racism and anti-imperialism, based in an authentic embrace of intersectionality and the fight for Indigenous, Black, LBGTQ, and women’s freedom. It’s a critique of those who disdain and diminish these struggles as “identity politics” and an obstacle to class unity. My brother Rick Ayers has been writing and posting about this for a long time, and I hear echoes of Rick’s analysis here, but this is as succinct and coherent an argument as I’ve seen.
