Change From Within has this very interesting post Interrupting Bernie: Exposing the White Supremacy of the American Left. [The link to the article has been corrected.]
Because here’s the thing – what’s powerful about these interruptions from Black women is less how it has changed the tone of the Democratic campaigns and more about what they have exposed in the White left.
The words of the post are powerful, and I will let you read them.
The service that this article performed that drew my attention to it was the video below on YouTube.
You may never see this on corporate media, and you won’t see this much on the internet. Seeing the video is substantially different from reading brief summaries by the white, corporate press on what happened during the interruption.
I am hoping that many of my readers will have the intellectual curiosity to want to see this for themselves.
Another powerful part of the original article is the display of this poster with Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words.
These are hard words to read, but the test for the white liberals amongst us is to be able to listen to them without getting defensive. Listening is not necessarily agreeing.
