Yeah Nah Pasaran! #197 w Arun Kundnani on What is Antiracism? And Why it Means Anticapitalism : February 29, 2024

This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! on 3CR we talk to Arun Kundnani [Twitter/X] on his latest book What is Antiracism? And Why it Means Anticapitalism (Verso, 2023):

Today, liberal antiracism has proven powerless against structural oppression. As Arun Kundnani demonstrates, white liberals can heroically confront their own whiteness all they want, yet these structures remain.

This deeply researched and swift-moving narrative history tells the story of the two antiracisms and their fates. As neoliberalism reordered the world in the last decades of the twentieth century, the case became clear: fighting racism means striking at its capitalist roots.
