Adolph Leonard Reed Jr. is an American Marxist professor emeritus of political science at the University of Pennsylvania, specializing in studies of issues of racism and U.S. politics. He has been a trenchant critic of anti-democratic and identitarian trends on the left. He notes in the interview below, for instance, that Black Lives Matter has received close to two billion US dollars of corporate funding. And rising all the time. For him, class is not about identity and is the fundamental. You could have a super-rich layer that was in proportion to ethnic groups in the society with the vast majority of people still exploited and oppressed, although the liberals might be happy.
Adolph Reed also points out that identitarian organising is not rooted in serious mass organisations. Rather, tiny numbers of people start up something which they totally control and ‘present’ through the corporate media, shape, decide all the policies, control the funding, etc. And he points to how it is all completely compatible with more-market economics and actually helped along by the market.
