THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 126: The Myth of the Humane Canada w/

Ever since Michael Moore painted Canada as violent crime free, healthcare having utopia. It's almost as if we look to our neighbors to the north as having an ideal society.
 
Many Americans often clamor whenever political administrations they find distasteful come to power that they''ll, "just move to Canada." For many reasons, Canada has been perceived as a tranquil nation lacking the social dysfunction and international bloodlust ascribed to the United States. Today we will actually look at aspects of Canadian politics and society that complicate these simplistic narratives of "Canadian Civility."
 
We'll ask, "Does Canada's humane image match its political record?
 
We'll be joined by Canadian activist Jafrikayiti.
 
Jafrikayiti, also known as Jean St. Vil, is a graduate of Waterloo University (Hon. B.Sc., Biology). He is an author, radio show host, public speaker, activist, artist and Canadian Civil Servant. He is the co-founder of two self-help organizations, AKASAN (Ayisyen ki ap soutni Ayisyen nètalkole) and Jaku Konbit, which follow the principles popularized by Marcus Garvey. He has been a thorn in the side of the Canadian government for many years, never giving up on the idea that Canada and the rest of the Core Group of influential foreign powers in Haiti could and should stop interfering in the governance of Haiti, so that Haitian people can build their own country on their own terms. You can find out more about him and his work at jafrikayiti.com.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 124: Why Don’t Black Politics Work for Black People w/ Adolph Reed, Jr.

Political Scientist Adolph Reed, Jr. has been writing about Black politics and Black political thought for over four decades. Having been an activist in the 60s as well as a long time labor organizer, his scholarship has persistently challenged orthodox thinking regarding Black political activity. Some of his classic works such as "Class Notes: Posing as Politics and Other Thoughts on the American Scene," and "Stirrings in the Jug: Black Politics in the Post Segregation Era," have set the standard for discussing the contemporary realities of Black political life.

Today we will inquire of Adolph Reed, Jr., "Does Black Politics Work for Black People, and if not why?"

You can find much of Dr. Reed's work here: https://muckrack.com/adolph-reed/arti...

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 123: Black Girl Magic for Empire w/ Angela Walker and the Saturday Crüe

Is the liberal establishment cynically using Black women's empowerment as a way to support American Empire?
 
Is woke capitalism in the wake of the George Floyd protests the neutralizing force to a real uprising?
 
From Hood Communist writer Onyesonwu Chatoyer:
 
"The hot new trend in the US empire is pushing African women to the front in order to make us the faces of the same old capitalist-imperialist violence. We are positioned as woke ladies with agency— kicking ass and taking names, bringing big auntie energy and those good good outfits to the day to day work of managing a genocidal settler-colonial empire. We don’t have to look any further than the examples of current US Ambassador to the UN and former high-ranking State Department official in Africa, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, or current Domestic Policy Czar and co-architect of the invasion and devastation of Libya, Susan Rice. There’s also Stacey Abrams, Condaleeza Rice, and dozens of others who’ve made muling a trend. All too often these days we are witnessing petit-bourgeois African women willingly taking positions of leadership, power, and influence within the political and military infrastructure of the United States. Positions that require, as part of their job descriptions, acts of extreme ongoing violence against the world’s most oppressed populations, including their own people. " We'll be discussing this and more with the Saturday Crüe and Green Party VP candidate, Angela Walker.
