The forum continues our critical dialogue on race and class in US politics from a Black left perspective: the political crimes of the Clintons against Black people; an indepth analysis of Obama ‘s unconventional” presidential bid touted as transcending US racial politics; the role of the Black Left in providing a clear analysis on the dangerous paradigm of post racial politics in America eagerly endorsed and promoted by Senator Barack Obama. How does the Black left seize the “window of opportunity” Obamamania presents to build a Black United Front? How does this happen and what hasn’t it happen? In reality is the Black Left so joined at the hip with the Democratic Party that it has presented Obama as the lesser of the two evils because he is Black and “our moment in history has arrived?“ In the privacy of the voting booth will white America transcend the politics of race? If you are curious about any of these issues join us for this much needed debate.
