Marxist Reading Group - Settlers by J. Sakai (Part One)

Marxist Reading Group will be meeting Thursday, July 18th at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the first half of the text (Chapters I through VII) of SETTLERS: THE MYTHOLOGY OF THE WHITE PROLETARIAT by J. Sakai. 


About the book:

"Settlers uncovers centuries of collaboration between capitalism and white workers and their organizations, as well as their neocolonial allies, showing how the United States was designed from the ground up as a parasitic and genocidal entity. Settlers exposes the fact that America’s white citizenry have never supported themselves but have always resorted to exploitation and theft, culminating in acts of genocide to maintain their culture and way of life. As recounted in painful detail by Sakai, the United States has been built on the theft of Indigenous lands and of Afrikan labor, on the robbery of the northern third of Mexico, the colonization of Puerto Rico, and the expropriation of the Asian working class, with each of these crimes being accompanied by violence."
