Being that today is Malcolm X’s birthday, I thought it was incumbent upon me to share these reflections. First and foremost, I think it’s necessary that I explain why I, as a “white man,” a euro-amerikan, feel such a profound reverence for Malcolm, someone who said to be a “black militant” and accused of being […]

His 1971 ‘Rules for Radicals’ was supposed to be a manual to organize against the evils of capitalism (and though never implied, from a privileged position atop a global division of labor). As such, his political stances are […]

Bourgeois history is typified by its appreciation of particulars.   In turn it rejects larger narratives regarding fundamental social relations.  The effect of this is obscuring unflattering trends in the history of the capitalist world-system and particular dominant countries therein. Though highly accessible, Scott Reynolds Nelson’s Steel Drivin’ Man: John Henry: The Untold Story of an American Legend adds […]
