Race and Racism in Russia

The NAACP, therefore, marshaled its resources — including a war chest of more than one million dollars, nearly , members, and access to power brokers throughout the world — to make human rights the standard for equality.
Trump and Russia used race to divide America. Now it's a national security problem.
This massive effort has not merely been erased from American public memory: It was never there in the first place. The civil rights movement that happened in spite of all this nonetheless retained significant ties to that wider universalist vision, derived via Gandhian nonviolence, the "social gospel" and other sources. It was not a failure of the liberal imagination on their part that lead them to take their eyes off the prize.
It was a practical concern about how to survive in a profoundly hostile political environment, in order to preserve some way forward for the black community. As a result, Anderson writes:. Nitze saw things much more narrowly, conceiving of nations as the only significant actors and military power as the overwhelming concern.

The central finding from a year of research, Shenker-Osorio explained, is the unexpected effectiveness of a suite of race-class narratives that call out scapegoating by greedy, wealthy special interests, and that call on people to unify across racial lines for the common good.
In short, this isn't just a defensive strategy. It's also a powerful approach for building a progressive electoral majority. What all these examples serve underscore is something that should be obvious but perhaps needs to be said: The best way to defend America is not with hardware or software or technical fixes, but by America realizing its highest ideals. Fighting to overcome racism strengthens every facet of American life. A vibrant, inclusive democracy is its own best defense. Follow him on Twitter at PaulHRosenberg. Buy Now, Pay Later.
