Revolution and White Privilege

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 12, 2008

Neela blogs:

I’ve recently watched a couple of documentaries about radical movements in the 1960s and 70s:Guerrilla: The Taking of Patty HearstThe Weather Underground and a narrative film about the Naxalite movement in West Bengal called Calcutta My Love

Both of the first two films were fascinating but left me feeling irritated at the ludicrousness of it all – especially at the white privilege that protected many of these so-called revolutionaries, whereas members of the Black Panther Party faced a decidedly different fate.
