On the Need to Become Radical, to Engage in Radical Politics.
Was Dr. Martin L. King Jr. hip to Frantz Fanon?
“And one day we must ask the question, why are there 40 million poor people in America? And when you begin to ask that question,
you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth. When you ask that question, you
begin to question the capitalist economy. And I’m simply saying that more and more, we’ve got to begin to ask questions about the
whole society.” [ Speech to SCLC, Atlanta, Georgia; Aug. 16, 1967 ].
“The basic confrontation which seemed to be colonialism versus anti- colonialism, indeed capitalism versus socialism, is already
losing its importance. What matters today, the issue which blocks the horizon, is the need for a redistribution of wealth. Humanity
will have to address this question, no matter how devastating the consequences may be”. [ Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the
Earth; 1961 ].
