Histomat’s Top 10 Marxists

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 1, 2007

Snowball blogs:

To celebrate breaking through the 100,000 unique hits counter on Histomat, I have decided to put together my top ten Marxists of all time. I expect this may well be quite a controversial affair – but it is a personal list and I have five minutes to spare so here goes. Feel free to suggest people who are more worthy of ‘top ten status’ – I am sure there are plenty (Bukharin, Kautsky, Plekhanov, etc. etc.)

Exploiting Tragedy for Racist Agendas

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 1, 2007

Vegan Kid posts an essay by Tim Wise on white supremacists exploiting the tragedy at Virginia Tech for their own agenda and relates to mainstream racism against people of color:

“With regard to the allegations of racially biased press coverage, to suggest that this case has failed to receive media attention because of the respective races of the perps and the victims is absurd. Research has found that local news (which is the source most of us rely on for crime information) over-represents blacks as offenders, relative to their share of crimes committed, and over-represents whites as victims, relative to the white share of actual crime victims. Furthermore, on both a local and national level, media tends to give more attention to violent crimes committed by blacks against whites than the reverse.”
