Boots Riley on Why the Left Abandoned Class Struggle

Riley explains why the New Left abandoned class struggle and shifted focus toward students and media. (Yes. I know Boots is a Marxist, but he's still a commited, long-time black radical)

I believe the Julia Reichert doc he is referring to is "An American Factory" on Netflix or else the other one about the GM plant. I'm gonna take a look this weekend.

Another person to check out is General Baker of the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement (DRUM)

"Look, we can't handle what's going on at your plant. We got ink, we got a mimeograph machine, we got paper, ww got a group of high school kids that'll pass your leaflets out, but I'm not going in your plant. You write it. You type it." - General Baker on organizing DRUM
