But rather than putting the issue of racism to bed, this report will no doubt provoke a backlash. If anything, the establishment’s denial of institutional racism will only vindicate and embolden those who have come out onto the streets to protest against racism and oppression over the last year. After all, in effect, this report is a declaration of war on the Black Lives Matter movement.
Malcolm X said ‘you can’t have capitalism without racism’. At the Marxist Student Federation we agree and we want to end capitalism and the racism that comes with it.
