Everyday, everywhere on Earth, some European is coming into spaces with African people (or Indigenous people of the Western Hemisphere) to express their perspective that nationalism is a primitive form of human consciousness. Even most of these people who claim to support national liberation for colonized people still see any semblance of national identity as reactionary and contrary to forward human progress.  We have the European socialist left to primarily thank for this racism disguised as class analysis.

An Analysis on Ukraine/NATO conflict with Russia

This piece was originally published here by People’s Programs. Written by Abbas Muntaqim. amerikkka is the biggest threat to humanity and the planet.
