 Progressive Labor Party on Race & Racism

OUR FIGHT

 

Progressive Labor Party (PLP) fights to destroy capitalism and the dictatorship of the capitalist class. We organize workers, soldiers and youth into a revolutionary movement for communism.

Only the dictatorship of the working class — communism — can provide a lasting solution to the disaster that is today’s world for billions of people. This cannot be done through electoral politics, but requires a revolutionary movement and a mass Red Army led by PLP.

Worldwide capitalism, in its relentless drive for profit, inevitably leads to war, fascism, poverty, disease, starvation and environmental destruction. The capitalist class, through its state power — governments, armies, police, schools and culture —  maintains a dictatorship over the world’s workers. The capitalist dictatorship supports, and is supported by, the anti-working-class ideologies of racism, sexism, nationalism, individualism and religion.

While the bosses and their mouthpieces claim “communism is dead,” capitalism is the real failure for billions worldwide. Capitalism returned to Russia and China because socialism retained many aspects of the profit system, like wages and privileges. Russia and China did not establish communism.

Communism means working collectively to build a worker-run society. We will abolish work for wages, money and profits. Everyone will share in society’s benefits and burdens. 

Communism means abolishing racism and the concept of “race.” Capitalism uses racism to super-exploit black, Latino, Asian and indigenous workers, and to divide the entire working class.

Communism means abolishing the special oppression of women — sexism — and divisive gender roles created by the class society.

Communism means abolishing nations and nationalism. One international working class, one world, one Party.

Communism means that the minds of millions of workers must become free from religion’s false promises, unscientific thinking and poisonous ideology. Communism will triumph when the masses of workers can use the science of dialectical materialism to understand, analyze and change the world to meet their needs and aspirations.

  Communism means the Party leads every aspect of society. For this to work, millions of workers — eventually everyone — must become communist organizers. Join Us!

The French Revolution proved that workers can rule 

On July 14, 1789, poor workers took over the Bastille, a medieval prison in Paris and symbol of feudal, aristocratic power. The great French Revolution had began! The capitalist class (bourgeosie) would replace the monarchy (king and nobles). But some advanced revolutionaries were advocating an egalitarian, communist society. This was the birth of the modern working-class communist movement!
France was then an agricultural society ruled by noble landowners and a powerful Catholic church, with the king at the top. The urban bourgeoisie wanted a constitutional monarchy giving them more political power. They needed the urban workers, called “sans-culottes,” to fight for them against the monarchy. But for a few years the sans-culottes fought for their own interests.

Bosses’ high school integration ploy points to war plans

NYC mayor de Blasio and his schools chancellor have announced a forced integration plan, to increase the enrollment of Black and Latin students at the specialized high schools in what could become the most prominent forced integration plan since the battles of the Civil Rights Movement fifty years ago.
Anti-racist alumni, current students, teachers and parents, some of whom are members and friends of the Progressive Labor Party, have an opportunity to win masses of people disgusted by gutter racism to multiracial unity in the fight for school integration. We say that good schools are integrated schools, that good schools take the learning of each student seriously, and that it is impossible for a segregated school to be a good school, including the ones we call elite.

Juneteenth perpetuates racist myth 

June 19, or “Juneteenth,” commemorates the end of chattel slavery. Juneteenth has been pushed on the working class with the sponsorship of major banks like Wells Fargo. Juneteenth perpetuates many racist myths about the U.S., including the myth that the images we’re given of Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama supposedly represent the ‘real’ U.S., and Donald Trump is something different.  
While the bosses push their bank-sponsored holiday of Juneteenth on Black workers, the bosses obscure the many anti-racist battles that have been fought by Black and white workers together. These same bosses keep racism alive and well in the 21st century, to divide Black and white workers from eacher and to prepare the U.S. working class for bigger and deadlier wars on the horizon.

CHICAGO, June 12—The racist Chicago Police Department (CPD) took the life of another member of our class. On the night of June 6, a killer cop shot 24-year-old Black father Maurice Granton Jr. in the back, killing him after a chase in the city’s south side Bronzeville neighborhood.

Members of Progressive Labor Party (PLP) have joined them in their struggles and put forward communist revolution as the only solution to end these racist police murders once and for all!

Fight Racist Disaster & Displacement in Puerto Rico

NEW YORK CITY, June 10—The normally festive Puerto Rican Day Parade was noticeably different this year as participants waved black and gray flags and wore t-shirts commemorating those who died in the 2017 Hurricane Maria. Thousands turned out, including a contingent of Puerto Rican families who have been displaced by the hurricane.  At the same time, there was celebration and recognition of the resilience and grassroots organizing efforts of the working class on the island. While U.S. capitalists have plans to maintain Puerto Rico as a playground for investors, bitcoin businesses, and real estate developers, workers have a different idea. Collectives have formed all over the island to reopen the schools, fight mass evictions of farmers, occupy spaces, and develop communities that rely on solar power rather than electricity.
