Walter Benn Michaels on how liberals still love diversity and ignore inequality: A conversation with the UIC professor whose controversial 2006 polemic The Trouble with Diversity now looks prescient (“But it’s obvious that you cannot build a working-class movement with a commitment to antidiscrimination. That doesn’t mean discrimination is right, of course—it’s wrong and we should oppose it. But you can’t build a working-class movement with that kind of campaign, because they’re not the victims of discrimination, they’re the victims of exploitation. If you keep telling them the problem is discrimination, what you’re actually telling them is, “We don’t want to get rid of inequality, we want to legitimize it.” It’s to say, “Look, if you’re poor because you’re a victim of racism, sexism, homophobia—that’s a problem because it’s an inequality of opportunity. But if you’re not a victim of one of those things, fuck you.””)

  1. someone says:

    In Europe people are now fire bombing synagogues and calling for the killing of Jews because of “Trump”. Whatever Trump has or has not done, it is no excuse to fire bomb synagogues or trash a kosher restaurant. People do it because they hate Jews not because of anything Trump has or has not done.
