I think it’s funny that Redneck Revolt is catching flak for trying to reach out to Conservatives/Libertarians/Reactionaries/etc., it really shows the metropolitan nature of radical leftism today. Like when you live in a coal mining town in West Virginia, chances are you’re not going to have a huge base of radical leftists from with which to organize a left-wing anti-capitalist movement. WHO ELSE are they going to interface with? WHO ELSE are they going to build a movement with? All the leftists already retreated into the cities and urban centers, these are people trying to make something out of literally nothing.

I don’t think we should be criticizing them for that, not all of us have the luxury of having a massive base of anti-capitalist folks to chose from and to organize towards socialism.

Those of you who can afford to buy organic, or even just buy fresh produce: please do. The more healthy food we buy, the more in demand it becomes, the cheaper it will be.
The cheaper it is, the more people in poverty will be able to afford healthy food, the more kids won’t grow up obese, the more adults won’t be trapped in a cycle.

Every time you buy something, you cast a vote for it to be in supply, to be produced more, to be cheaper.

Remember that.

If you are a studyblr,

1. It’s okay to date. Stay focused on your studies, but if you like someone ask them out!

2. It’s okay to be stressed. I can’t think of a moment when I’m actually not stressed out.

3. You don’t need pretty stationery and you don’t need to highlight your notes. Find out what works best for you and stick to that.

4. Socialize. Go out. Have fun.

5. Procrastination is normal, all-nighters are normal, not following your planner (or not even having one) is normal too.

6. Don’t forget about your interests. You’ll regret now following your hobbies later, trust me because I am now. I spent two years of high school focusing only on studies and now I wish to go back and paint all I want, read all I want, write all I want and learn a billion more songs on the piano.

7. Relax. It’s going to be okay.

The Midheaven: How You Will Be Remembered

The Midheaven (MC) is commonly thought to describe one’s career path. Although this is a decent indicator of one’s overall path, it can be hard to relate to a specific career so early in one’s life.

“The workers must be armed and organized. Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.” — Karl Marx

This should be a very pressing issue for the far-left. We need to start pulling a lot more Black Panther shit, waltzing around the capitol building locked and loaded. As a tendency and a movement, we need to flat-out steal the “gun culture” from reactionaries.

anonymous asked:

what do I do when someone tells me Jewish isn't a race

Ah yes.  We know the type:

We don’t imagine the person who told you this will be intelligent enough to comprehend the following, but here’s the breakdown of how wrong they are:

1) There is no biological basis for race.  There is no gene that is exclusive to members of any one “racial” category.    The concept of “race” has been roundly rejected by geneticists and anthropologists as having zero scientific validity.   As anthropologist John Shea points out, “Race is folk taxonomy, not science. The variables used to organize it, such as skin color and hair texture, are arbitrary choices.”

2) If race isn’t a scientifcally-valid construct to describe reality, then just what is it?  It’s a social construct - something that doesn’t actually exist but that humans have taken a hold of as a way to organize their social world. As Brian Jones put it, race is real “…in the same way that Wednesday is real. But it’s also made up in the same way that Wednesday is made up.”

3) Because race is a made-up social construct, we prefer the term “racialized” as a term, since race isn’t something people are, it’s something that’s done to them - an identity foisted upon them.

4) Racialization historically has been super-arbitrary and what people think of as “races” varies with geography and time.  Since it’s not a scientifically-valid concept, country of origin, language spoken, and religious beliefs have all been used to determine what racial category one group or another has belonged to over the years - all in an attempt by the dominant “race” to keep “lesser races” subordinate to them.  For example, in the late 1800s, neither Italians nor the Irish were considered to be white.  There are parts of the word even today that would consider Catholics to be a separate racial category.

(above: anti-Irish racist propaganda from the late 1800s)

5) So because racialization is a social construct that changes with time and geography, Jews have previously been considered a separate “race” - certainly by the nazis in the most extreme and tragic example.  Karen Brodkin has written about how Jews in America “became white” in the 1940s.  Currently we are witnessing the racialization of Muslims in very much the same way that Jews were racialized.

So to sum up: race is a made-up concept that’s not substantively real or scientifically-valid.  Because of this, people have historically used all manner or criteria to try to delineate racial boundaries, including religion, language, and geographic origin.  Some of these, mixed with physical stereotyping, were combined to racialize Jews.  There have been other examples of ethnic, linguistic, and/or religious groups being racialized and we’re currently seeing the same thing happen to Muslims.
