The capitalist argument that there will always be a need for garbage-men and toilet cleaners, is very telling on the issue of racism. Racism is not just affecting the ones living next to us, but effects trans-nationally. #marxism #racism #capitalism #intersectionality
Racism is a cornerstone of outsourcing labor to the lower classes and the lower ethnicities both within the exploiting country, and outside in economically weaker countries. In capitalism, each economic class, ethnicity class, and sex class is assigned labor roles.
Racism serves to keep the people within and ethnicity class in their assigned labor roles. Just the same as misogyny serves to keep women in assigned labor roles (overlapping in ethnicity and the same sex).
Racism exists so the Chinese can make our electronic gadgets, black men are available for prison labor, the Indian can make our home goods, the Middle Easterners will continue enduring the economic activity of military exercise (the military is also a job sector)
Racism exists so Congo will continue providing low wage labor in cobalt mines, so Ghanaians will know their place to provide child labor for cacao. Racism exists to tell ethnicities to know their place and continue providing labor to support the oppressor.
That is why the issue of #CulturalAppropriation is so misunderstood. It is not about stopping well-intentioned uses of oppressed cultures. It is about recognizing where that came from and struggle to overthrow the system that made the exploitation of their labor possible.
It is about fighting against the exploitation of our proletarian sisters and brothers nationally and internationally, because make no mistake we are not apart.

Kajsa Ekis Ekman (KEE) wrote last week about Kristoffer Johansson who will be moved from class 1 security men’s prison to class 2 security women’s prison. There are no class 1 security women’s prisons in Sweden. Take a guess why. #peaktrans #radicalfeminism #marxism #swepol
We can no longer coddle men’s emotions. Kristoffer Johansson raped, smeared his sperm on his victim, murdered and butchered her. He then feigned concern and joined the search party for her body. The butchering of Vatchareeya Bangsuan is a part of men’s terror against women.
Vatchareeya’s murder is a terror that women grow up with and is normalized by societal institutions. It is not random that he was a man and she was a woman. That Kristoffer’s emotions has higher priority than women’s lives is a natural consequence of institutionalized patriarchy.

Andrew Collier 1980: "In his essay Ideology and the State, Althusser puts forward the view that all ideology ‘interpellates’ (hails) the individual as a ‘subject’; that is to say, addresses the individual in such a way as to give him or her to understand that+
he or she is an autonomous agent, rather than a product of a definite society, limited by a definite class position.He uses the example of religious ideologies, but the root illusion of liberalism is very similar:
the idea that freedom and ‘human rights’ are something we ‘naturally’ possess so that all that is necessary to secure them is to keep the state at bay, rather than something that can only be secured by real collective control of social forces.
