Race Versus Class? More on the Rainbow and Class Politics; More on Liberation Theology and Marxism
Keywords:Race, Philosophy, Inequality
AbstractCollins' reply to my review of her book, The Rainbow Challenge, published in the June issue of Monthly Review, grants that "class is everywhere" (including in the U.S.) and that "class conflicts determine how racism and sexism appear and are reinforced in the U.S." I am pleased that we have broadened our areas of agreement, and that we both agree that the Rainbow Coalition should not be a mere aggregate of multi class social movements. I am also pleased that this exchange has given Collins an opportunity to further expand on the many critical points raised in her book, points that are of enormous importance for the current and future practices of the U.S. left.
