Fascism and Hate: The U.S. and Latin America in 2020 (I)

José R. Oro Fascism is a dictatorial form of government intimately bound to hatred in its many manifestations, developed within the context and conditions of imperialism.

The Origins of White Supremacy

Chelli Stanley White supremacy is an incredibly insincere distraction that tries to erase the histories of White, Black, and Red peoples. “Many White people seem to have forgotten what happened to them.” Some say the white supremacy ideology comes from pride.  Some say it comes from a belief that one’s culture is superior.  Some say it comes…

Hatred of the Indian

Alvaro García Linera Like a thick night fog, hatred voraciously runs through the traditional urban middle class neighbourhoods of Bolivia. Their eyes are filled with anger. They do not shout, they spit; they do not demand, they impose. Their songs are not about hope or brotherhood, they are about disdain and discrimination against the Indians….

Bolivia, a Second Evangelization by Blood and Fire

Ollantay Itzamná Police with crucifix in hand go out to repress in Bolivia “Bolivia for Christ.

Race in Black and White

Alexis L. Boylan Slavery and the Civil War were central to the development of photography as both a technology and an art. “Matthew Fox-Amato’s Exposing Slavery is a valuable aid for thinking through the tangle of issues around race, sight, power, and bodies.” Review: Exposing Slavery: Photography, Human Bondage, and the Birth of Modern Visual Politics in…

9/11, Nazis, Zionists, Trump…and the Second Coming of Christ

Ruperto Concha Last week had two fateful and mysterious dates for the United States: Wednesday 11, with the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and Friday 13, which is the gringo version of our “Tuesday 13”. Friday the 13th, of course, is pure folklore. But September 11, 2001, caused a serious, almost…

Ancient Eugenicists

Zanga Chimombo Ancient Egyptians were not Asians, nor aliens. “Genocide might indeed be a worse demon of our nature.” When black civilisation was destroyed first time round there was little to show for its former glories apart from squat noses and thick lips on statues and other artworks that invading lighter folks successively reduced. After…

American Exceptionalism = Mass Murder

Glen Ford U.S. police agencies, including the FBI, are incapable of mounting an effective offensive against their soul mates in the armed white right. “The FBI has always behaved as if armed white supremacists were a potential reserve force to help crush Black rebellions.” In the Age of Trump, the New York Times and other corporate media have…
