A Progressive 'Redneck Revolt' Says Tackle Racism First
https://www.alternet.org/activism/rednec...-economics

From the article:
Quote:There is no shortage of media commentary discrediting “identity politics,” particularly the focus on Black, Latinx, LGBTQ, and immigrant communities calling for justice and equity. Economics is our real problem, a counter argument goes, not race, sex, gender, citizenship. But as author Nancy Isenberg points out in White Trash, “identity has always been a part of politics.”

Laws have been written to oppress and exploit particular identities—Native Americans, Black Americans, Asians, homosexuals, transgender, and women—in a successful effort to maintain a system of White supremacy. Yet, members of these communities have worked for the rights and equality of everyone. In turn, White allies have joined in these anti-racism fights.

The Redneck Revolt is one such organization. The self-described anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-fascist group challenges working-class White people to stand against White supremacy.

I recently talked to Brett, one of the members who heads up the network’s Southeast Michigan Chapter. (Because of hostilities toward the organization, Redneck Revolt members use only their first names publicly.) There are about 40 chapters nationwide. He explained why the group focuses on anti-racism rather than economics even though it seeks out white working-class and poor people in economically struggling rural areas.

...

The interview follows.

Well-prepared white allies are prepared to attack the system directly, by talking to other white people, esp. the willfully ignorant that blindly perpetuate the white-normative racist social caste system. They deal with the white ignorant questions like: Why can't we have a White History Month? Why can't we have a White Entertainment Channel? This is a white people problem that white people have to deal with. Thanks to the Redneck Revolt for taking this on. Clap

Here's a graphic example of what the Redneck Revolt is up against, WATCH A CONFEDERATE CRYBABY WHINE TO A BLACK MAN THAT HIS FAMILY COULDN’T AFFORD SLAVES

Makes you want to...Facepalm

Read about that elsewhere, Brewman J. A great group to push a narrative that needs to be out there.

Oh the poor guy didn't have slaves. I am wiping tears of laughter outta my eyes. So his people fought and died for those rich slave owners...there is no justice for being stupid.
