What to Make of Marxist Critiques of Anti-White Politics

Chris Roberts, American Renaissance, June 22, 2020

One political faction I keep close tabs on is the “anti-woke Left,” which is composed mainly of Communists and Socialists who are critical of cancel culture, “white privilege,” and anti-white propaganda such as the “1619 Project.” They are not closet white advocates, but their criticism of the more mainstream left is insightful and often entertaining.

What do you think of the anti-woke left? Do you think we should even pay attention? A great example of its worldview and polemical style is a recent episode of the socialist podcast Chapo Trap House, in which a panel mocks Robin DiAngelo’s new best-selling book, White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism. Listen to it below, and tell us in the comments what you think about this movement.
