Dr. Ajamu Nangwaya on race analysis in union and power politics

On November 24, 2011, CHUO 89.1 FM (Ottawa) The Train's Denis Rancourt interviewed social scientist Dr. Ajamu Nangwaya about his work analyzing racism in union organizations and race attitudes within the class structures in North America.

The discussion included a critique of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the welfare state as an accommodation to capitalism, the radical way to labour self-management, white supremacy as a barrier to progressive aims, resistance cooptation impact on race solidarity, the need for free expression in the public arena -- even racist or homophobic speech, criminal gangs versus Black Panthers in establishment's response, Obama's racism, and more.
