Chomsky on the intersection of race & class in US history

April 13, 2012

This video is re-posted from ZNet.

Author and linguist Noam Chomsky talks about how race and class intersect in US history, with emphasis on how this intersection impacts African Americans.

Chomsky talks about US slavery, the Jim Crow era, the Civil Rights movement and contemporary treatment of Blacks in the US. He also acknowledges that King became a real threat to the US once he started combining his analysis of White Supremacy with class oppression.
