Reviewed in the United States on March 18, 2019
Anti-Blackness is framed through the Black Radical Tradition and the critical questioning of what it means to be free and liberated without capitalism. Anti-Blackness is ensconced in the long history racial capitalism that has negatively affected Black folk. I also appreciated the section about the history of guns and how Black people have protected themselves has gun owners since the state was never there to protect them anyway. The re articulation of ‘non-violence’ as not PASSIVE, but on the condition that it doesn’t mean Black people aren’t going to raise arms to fight back was good. The authors strip away the romanticized version of white liberals only focusing in ‘non-violence’ as if it means we can never go up in arms to fights oppression.
I think it’s a necessary read for mainstream in the USA who really don’t understand how anti-Blackness operates and how Black liberation isn’t possible through capitalism.
