Bernie and Black Voters with Malaika Jabali and Wendi Muse

Dan has in-depth discussion on Bernie's approach to race and what he must do to win over Black voters with Malaika Jabali and Wendi Muse. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Sanders isn't unpopular with Black voters. In fact, he has done rather well with young Black people. But to win the primary and beat Biden, he must do a lot better. In particular, Malaika and Wendi argue that Bernie must integrate racial justice into the core of his class struggle agenda, rather than emphasizing it as a separate and siloed issue.

Nostalgia Trap - Episode 144: The View from Brazil w/ Wendi Muse

Play
Read more

Wendi Muse is a doctoral candidate researching antiracist and left organizing in Cold War era Brazil, and the creator of the Left POCket Project, which curates capsule histories of important, often overlooked figures from the radical left. Her work shows us places where capitalism and the state are particularly oppressive, and documents the extraordinary actions people have taken to maintain solidarity and continue building movements of resistance. In this conversation, we talk about the racial and class dimensions of the Brazilian left, the movement of people and ideas between Brazil and other Portuguese-speaking nations, and the wider political implications of the 2018 assassination of Brazilian feminist and human rights activist Marielle Franco.
