Rise Up Hip Hop Nation: “I Wish I Were Wrong”

Professor Tina Wright gives a great analysis of both Reuter's and Fidel's Castro's articles on Race and Barack Obama

Professor Tina Wright highlights two columns, one by a Reuter's and the other by Fidel's Castro which gives an indepth analysis of Race and Barack Obama

I have had a number of conversations with friends about Castro and Cuba as a model for social justice. I always give credit to the regime for its health care and education systems, but am not as enthusiastic about Cuba as a model as other progressives, leftists, or revolutionaries seem to be.

– I argue that the people’s power for self determination is undermined by a life long leader, but my sparring partners rationalize the need for a strong leader as the only way to fight US imperialism.

– I say that their isolation could have been used to demonstrate complete self sustainability (agriculture for example) and there would be no need to be a part of the “world market” but Cuba supporters think that is impossible for Cuba to be completely self sustaining…not sure why however…

Fidel Castro offers up a column that shows more empathy and not criticism for Barack Obama

– I argue that a true socialist country despite its history would not show the same racialized poverty (and racism in general) that permeates the rest of the world, but they say history takes time to correct.

I offer this to say, I am not a Castro supporter or hater. In theory, I believe his ideology is correct. In practice, it loses its credibility (as long as Cuba is a class and race based non-democratic society…which it is).

But I completely agree with Castro’s latest analysis of Obama’s challenges. With the racist white supremacist unable to accept Obama as president, he is being attacked fiercely. Instead of recognizing this and its repercussions on the future, many on the left are caught up in petty politics and also blaming Obama for not being all they want him to be. In getting caught in that trap, I see an opportunity for real democracy slipping quickly.

If action trumps criticism, progressives can have all they want with an Obama administration…but if we continue to let white nationalist fascists frame the mainstream dialogue, an opportunity is wasted for radical change. Read this analysis from Castro carefully…and if you want social justice for all people…take heed.

  1. As usual, he make some good points. “Socialist” to these wingnuts would be, at most, a moderate conservative to the actual left wing in Latin America in regards to Obama. In reality, Obama is doing pretty decent in terms of this mess, especially when taking into consideration the general stance this country is on.

  2. Lets be real for a second. If your a white racist that supported bush should you love obama. You still have your wars and indefinite detention right. Whats the problem. These so called racists should love obama for continuing bush’s legacy. duh

  3. jericho saliz says:

    let’s b real now: these same “white racists” didnt want “healthcare” bills when bill clinton was in office either. u gotta believe that people care about themselves and want to teach thier kids about self reliance sometimes. cant keep runnin behind “race” everytime others disagree with u; then u become the “racist”

  4. Who cares what Castro’s opinion of Americans is. Call us racist all you want castro we are still going forward to save our country from people like you.

  5. I say on the whole, blacks have a higher quality of life in Cuba than in the US. i.e. health care, criminal justice, education, safety and a gov that trys and recognizes it has to get better on race and class… it happens to be more democratic than the US. study the CDRs…

  6. 廢話

    Booker T. Obama cuts deals with sickness speculators, yet “progressives” are supposed to fall in line? Someone’s been adding suger to that kool-aid; because there is no way on earth that one could conclude that forcing everybody to buy junk insurance is progress.
