I mainly agree w the over-all ‘consensus’ of the show’s 3 guests, that both the Repugs & particularly the Dims are woefully inadequate re serving & addressing the legit needs & concerns of Black & Brown people [actually all working-class / working-poor folks, even white ones], & they just as Biden’s done in 2020 [& Billary HRC did in 2016] expected Black voters’ loyalty to them while offering Black [& Brown] folks little if anything in return- Except that they were not Repug Trump.
That being said, I must correct / fact-check something Bro Diallo said when he said there are / can be key differences between the Dims vs Repugs re the material conditions of Black people, which he gave as an example the moratorium in IL on the death-penalty; which [per Diallo] a Dim Gov of IL [Pat Quinn?] installed it, a Repug Gov [Bruce Rauner? who BTW was an advisor to ex Dim Chicago Mayor Rahmbo] then reversed it, & now another Dim Gov [JB.Pritzker? who’s a billion real-estate mogul] reinstated it. FYI: Bro Diallo’s younger than me & he said he’s lived in Chicago for the past 10 yrs- Well I was born & raised in Chicago. And the fact is the one who first installed the moratorium on the death-penalty in IL was ex GOP Gov George Ryan back in 2000. Dim Pat Quinn signed a bill into LAW in 2011 which was supposed to abolish the death-penalty in IL, which begs the question how could Quinn’s Repug successor [Rauner] just undo that LAW?! I know Repug Rauner could rescind his Dim predecessor’s [Quinn] executive-order re a death-penalty moratorium, but once it becomes official state LAW, it ain’t supposed to be easily undone / reversed.
Maybe time didn’t allow for a brief discussion on Azania. It was the beautiful Cuba intervention/ internationalism on the battlefield that gave Azania & Namibia nominal liberation. Did I miss your review of the mini series Guerrilla on Showtime.
I never saw it. And no, time didn’t permit and your points are well taken… the direction I was trying to go in. In other words, it wasn’t the US state who ended apartheid. Exactly.
