Chapter 3: Making it About Race

This reading from Chapter 3 of ‘Why Race Still Matters’ recalls the 2018 ‘Lefty Boot Camp’ sketch from Australian satirical news show, Tonightly, in which antiracists are admonished for the failures of ‘the left’. I argue that a lack of interest in the actual history of the antiracist movement in all its complexity is to blame for these simplistic associations made between speaking about race and the failures of the left.
