Racism, Anti-Communism and the CPUSA’s Struggle Against Both in U.S. History @ Online
Dec 4 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
“Every Liberal is a Socialist.  Every Socialist is a Communist.  Every Communist is Moscow’s Spy.”  So went a poster used  in an anti-May Day “Loyalty Day” march in the high cold war period after WWII. But anti-Communism went far beyond traditional conservative and reactionary groups and became the foundation of a “cold war consensus” for U.S. domestic and foreign policy in the post WWII period. In my presentation I will examine the relationship between color racism as the model for anti-radicalism at home and in U.S. imperialism abroad, and the … Continued

Dec 5 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am
In a surreal meeting last Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved on first reading a military equipment use policy that explicitly allows the use of robots outfitted with bombs to blow people up. The policy allows 3 high-level command officers to employ robot bombs based on their “evaluation” that other things wouldn’t work. The Robocop policy passed on an 8-3 vote. This isn’t the world we want to live in. The “evaluations”  of a police department which received 272 recommendations to improve its racist policing practices just six … Continued
