Oh, where to begin….

The Party for Socialism and Liberation, a communist party with Trotskyist origins in the United States, published an article on the killing of Trayvon Martin two days ago. Per usual, there is no mention of the historical colonization of African people in the U.S. Rather, they instead chalk it up to a “racist killing”. There is no militant call for African communities right to resist all manifestations of the state which keep them, as a nation, oppressed and occupied. Their solution, instead, as “revolutionary socialists”, is to build the ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition to try to challenge police brutality and incarceration.

This is problematic in a few ways. One, building up an “anti-racist” organization aimed at eliminating oppression against Africans will degenerate into petty reformism (of which both organizations are completely guilty of anyways). Secondly, the question of social revolution, of seizing political and state power by a revolutionary organization – what is to be gained and how the colonization of Africans can truly and finally be condemned to the dustbin of history – is thrown out of the window.

Compare this to the analysis put fourth by the Chairman of the African Socialist International, Omali Yeshitela, at a recent event in St Petersburg, Florida in which some of Travyon Martin’s family members were actually present.

The PSL, one of the better White Left organizations due to their unequivocal and consistent anti-imperialist stance (in my opinion), still continues to miss the point on the question of Africans in the U.S. and I have to seriously wonder why. In the 21st century, why do “revolutionary socialists” still ignore the historical colonization of African, Mexican, and Indigenous peoples in the U.S and the role that it plays today? Why do they overlook the absolute necessity of the promotion of social revolutionary as the solution for problems in bourgeois society?

Serious revolutionaries must continue to ask these questions (among many others) and criticize these organizations which continuously put fourth a wrong and flawed analysis, that do not actively self-criticize themselves or fix their errors. Otherwise, revolutionary theory is relegated to further irrelevance and suffers an even worse fate than it presently endures.

Here is another image that I came across which illustrates the differences between two so-called “Arab dictators” (this image perfectly shows who the real “dictator” is). Many on the White Left still continue to oppose Bashar Al Assad either by outright supporting his overthrow by Western backed forces or by some magical “workers uprising”. Lets be clear about something, Assad is not a socialist but he is the President of the last remaining secular Arab state which maintains great unity amongst it’s population. He is supported amongst most (if not all) sectors of the Syrian population. This image speaks for itself.

I came across this last night and felt compelled to share this information. Half of the post is irrelevant as it reveals Invisible Children’s dishonesty and corruption as a “charity”. Myself, I’m nowhere close to a sympathizer for charities for many reasons. The corrupt nature of Invisible Children should not be a surprise for the demographic in which this blog targets (ie. anti-imperialist/anti-white power radicals). I mean, hell, look how many different organizations cashed in on the destruction of Haiti. Nevertheless, this is short and (not so)sweet.


Chase Bank contributed $1 million to Invisible Children to help them produce the KONY 2012 campaign, among other programs. JP Morgan Chase is also a major investment banker of Tullow Oil. That’s right, the oil company that needs US military help to pump oil out of Uganda.

Exxon Mobil is now a major partner in the oil drilling operation in Uganda. JP Morgan and Chase Bank are intimately tied to Exxon Mobil through the Rockefeller family with corporate board members sharing positions in both companies.
