This episode is taken from our patron only show, "The Mau Mau Hour w/ Pascal Robert". He reflects on his time writing for Black Agenda Report and the legacy of Glen Ford.  This episode is a dedication to a true revolutionary.     About Glen Ford (taken from www.blackagendareport.com):  Historic "firsts," "mosts," and "onlys" are the hallmarks of Glen Ford’s long career. The son of famed disc jockey Rudy “The Deuce” Rutherford, the first Black man to host a non-gospel television show in the Deep South – Columbus, Georgia, 1958 – Glen was reading newswire copy on-the-air at age eleven. Glen’s first full-time broadcast news job was at James Brown’s Augusta, Georgia radio station WRDW, in 1970 – where ‘The Godfather of Soul” shortened Glen’s surname to “Ford.” Glen Ford  worked as a newsperson at four more local stations: in Columbus, Georgia, Atlanta, Baltimore – where he created his first radio syndication, a half-hour weekly news magazine called “Black World Report” – and Washington, DC. In 1974, Ford joined the Mutual Black Network (88 stations), where he served as Capitol Hill, State Department and White House correspondent, and Washington Bureau Chief, while also producing a daily radio commentary. In 1977, Ford co-launched, produced and hosted “America’s Black Forum” (ABF), the first nationally syndicated Black news interview program on commercial television. ABF made Black broadcast history. For the next four years, the program generated national and international headlines nearly every week. Never before – and never since – had a Black news entity commanded the weekly attention of the news services (AP, UPI, Reuters, Agence France-Presse – even Tass, the Soviet news agency) and the broadcast networks. While still host and co-owner of ABF, Ford in 1979 created “Black Agenda Reports,” which provided five programs each day on Black Women, History, Business, Sports and Entertainment to 66 radio stations. The syndication produced more short-form programming than the two existing Black radio networks, combined. Ford also produced the McDonald’s-sponsored radio series “Black History Through Music,” aired on 50 stations, nationwide. In 1987, Ford launched “Rap It Up,” the first nationally syndicated Hip Hop music show, broadcast on 65 radio stations. During its six years of operations, “Rap It Up” allowed Ford to play an important role in the maturation of a new African American musical genre. He organized three national rap music conventions, and wrote the Hip Hop column for Jack The Rapper’s Black radio trade magazine. Ford co-founded BlackCommentator.com (BC) in 2002. The weekly journal quickly became the most influential Black political site on the Net. In October, 2006, Ford and the entire writing team left BC to launch BlackAgendaReport.com (BAR). In addition to his broadcast and Internet experience, Glen Ford was national political columnist for Encore American & Worldwide News magazine; founded The Black Commentator and Africana Policies magazines; authored The Big Lie: An Analysis of U.S. Media Coverage of the Grenada Invasion (IOJ, 1985); voiced over 1000 radio commercials (half of which he also produced) and scores of television commercials; and served as reporter and editor for three newspapers (two daily, one weekly). Ford was a founding member of the Washington chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ); executive board member of the National Alliance of Third World Journalists (NATWJ); media specialist for the National Minority Purchasing Council; and has spoken at scores of colleges and universities.   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

“Though there was much sheer rascality in the Wall Street of the nineteen-twenties, much sheer greed roaming at large, and a widespread betrayal of the fiduciary principle, it may be that none of these things did as much damage to the country, in the sum total, as the sheer irresponsibility of men who, possessing vast powers, played the game of profit and loss without regard for the general public interest.”   This quote from Frederick Lewis Allen’s 1935 book, “Lords of Creation” are prescient words that still ring true when we speak of the new oligarchical elite in Silicon Valley. Running roughshod over regulations and labor rights like their turn of the century predecessors.  Is the Silicon Valley tech 1% truly the benevolent creators of technology that will lead us to a new better, smarter more efficient world? Or is their libertarian vision of progress just a dystopian nightmare?   About Corey Pein: Corey Pein is a regular contributor to The Baffler, where he writes a column and hosts the podcast "News from Nowhere."

When this Chris Rock bit debuted in the late 90’s it was lauded as a brutally honest look into the contradicting realities of Black America. Chris Rock was being called the new Pryor and there were comparisons to Lenny Bruce. Rock was becoming a mouthpiece for Black America, but was his most powerful bit anything more than underclass ideology? A curse filled, Cosby-esque bootstrapping manifesto?   In this episode we’ll take a deeper dive into the Reagan era respectability politics that dominated popular culture and the fascination with Black Excellence.   Hear Napoleon here: https://soundcloud.com/napoleondalegend   Watch José's videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeDKIj0G5XbultKOQnacu_w         Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

The pandemic has transformed the way we think about work and labor globally. In the US, many employees are unwilling to return to service jobs that underpay and provide limited benefits. In China, there is a recent phenomenon called “Lying flat” whereby young people refuse to partake in “productive forces” of the party, and instead choose to settle for non-careerist but more relaxed lifestyles. At the same time, the pandemic has accelerated remote work that for many employees has also meant longer hours.   In this episode we engage with the politics of labor and what pandemic means to us as workers, consumers and citizens.   About our guest Maria Repnikova ( https://www.mariarepnikova.com/) Dr. Repnikova is an Assistant Professor in Global Communication at Georgia State University. This year she is a Wilson Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholar. In the past, Maria was a postdoctoral fellow at the Project for Advanced Research in Global Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania. She received her doctorate (DPhil) in Politics at the University of Oxford where she was a Rhodes Scholar.   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

There is a notion that poisons the minds of many Americans. The myth of Manifest Destiny. The narrative that the vast empty western lands of what we now call the United States was an untamed wild unknown filled with savages that could only be settled by a truly civilized people. In recent weeks, there has been breaking news from Canada that unmarked mass graves have been found near what were knows as “residential schools”. These “schools” were boarding facilities with a long-standing partnership between religious institutions and national governments. Their goal was to isolate Indigenous youth from their families erase their customs and language and assimilate them to the dominant culture.   In the United States, Col. Richard Henry Pratt was maybe the most impactful figure of the off-reservation schools. His goal was that of complete assimilation. His motto that became that of the system, “Kill the Indian, Save the Man”. In this episode of THIS IS REVOLUTION, we’ll take a deep dive into the insidious nature of the residential schools in the US as well as Canada with historian John Gram.   About John Gram (From his website https://johnrgram.blogspot.com/): Dr. Gram’s research and teaching interests focus on the political, social, and cultural consequences of US expansion during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His current research agenda examines the process of indigenous identity formation under the pressures of settler colonialism, as well as the processes by which the United States incorporated frontier and borderland regions. He is the author of Education At the Edge of Empire: Negotiating Pueblo Identity in New Mexico’s Indian Boarding Schools (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2015). He also has a blog, “Telegrams”   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out. We appreciate each and every one of you.

The past decade has been one of turmoil and tumult for the United Kingdom. From economic austerity to Brexit, the country has limped and lurched from crisis to crisis. The outcome has been growing division evidenced by the rise of Scottish nationalism and increased polarization between left and right. One important aspect of this trend towards national disintegration has been the increasingly ill-tempered cultural war, stoked by the right-wing press and Conservative government. As in the United States, part of this battle is being waged over history, with the Tory establishment and their allies at the Daily Mail and Telegraph whipping up hysteria about attacks on British heritage in response to critical academic studies on the country’s imperial past. How does history feed into British national identity?   How is the empire remembered? And what does the increasingly contentious nature of the public discussion pertaining to British history tell us about the state of British politics?   About Priyamvada: My primary interests are in colonial and postcolonial studies. I have related interests in the novel, South Asian literature, decolonization, critical race studies and the politics and cultures of empire and globalization. Published work includes Literary Radicalism in India: Gender, Nation and the Transition to Independence (Routledge, 2005), After Iraq: Reframing Postcolonial Studies (Special issue of New Formations co-edited with Neil Lazarus), The Indian English Novel: Nation, History and Narration (Oxford University Press, 2009) and, most recently, Insurgent Empire: Anti Colonial Resistance and British Dissent (Verso, 2020). My work has also appeared in The Hindu, Outlook India, India Today, The Independent, The New Statesman, The Guardian and The Nation (USA). I've contributed occasionally to the BBC's Start the Week and Newsnight as well as programmed on NDTV-India, Al-Jazeera, National Public Radio and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

Sex work remains a controversial topic both on the left and in broader mainstream circles. In recent years, many on the left, particularly in feminist circles, have organized and campaigned for the legalization of sex work, under the slogan "sex work is work". While not suggesting that such work is empowering or positive, the movement has worked to decriminalize and destigmatize it. However, others have criticized this approach arguing that sex work is uniquely exploitative and inherently violent. What defines sex work? Is it inherently exploitative? And if so, what is the political posture the left should take towards those engaged in this form of labour? About Esperanza Fonseca: Esperanza Fonseca is a survivor of the commercial sex trade and a member of the anti-imperialist feminist organization AF3IRM. She is currently based in Oakland, CA, and has a seven-year background in organizing workers and tenants for economic justice. She got her start in organizing as a Fellow with the Ziegler Young Religious Leaders Organizing Fellowship, where she organized faith leaders to advance economic justice initiatives in the City of Los Angeles, resulting in strong contracts and improved working conditions for food-service, hotel, and grocery workers. Fonseca graduated from Whittier College with a degree in the Whittier Scholars Program: Feminist Studies and Liberation Theology. She maintains a blog and writes on ending gendered violence and sexual exploitation.   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out. We appreciate each and every one of you.

Perhaps no term has caught the imagination of political circles on both the right and the left as the term “Professional Managerial Class” (PMC). The term was first coined by John and Barbara Ehrenreich to describe a caste of middle-class professional elites who increasingly controlled production through their specialist training and educational credentials. While the work of the Ehrenreich's was certainly significant, their hypothesis was not an entirely new one. In the 1940s, the Trotskyist-turn-conservative James Burnham penned the “Managerial Revolution” which hypothesized that society was increasingly falling under the domination of a managerial elite with specialist knowledge.   In recent times, especially in the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis and the 2020 COVID pandemic, such analysis and criticism has gain popularity on both the right and left. However, how useful is the term PMC? Are the PMC a coherent social class? And in what ways does the convergence of discourse between both right and left on the “PMC thesis” obfuscate more than it elucidates?   About Ben Burgis: Ben Burgis is a philosophy professor and the author of Give Them An Argument: Logic for the Left.

Many liberals and progressives have been circling the wagons defending Critical Race Theory as a part of the new “Culture War.” The desire to defend these ideas stems from the reactionary right wing using Critical Race Theory as the new boogie man that is harming the narrative of American Exceptionalism conservatives so desperately cling to. In this episode we will discuss the assertions of Critical Race Theory and inquire: Do these theories challenge capitalism and wealth hierarchies? Or is this simply a plea for more liberal anti racism that seeks to diversify the ruling class as the overall pie shrinks for the rest of the nation?   About Dr. Mocombe: Paul C. Mocombe is a Haitian philosopher and sociologist. He currently works as a professor of philosophy and sociology at West Virginia State University.

In 1979, the Iranian Revolution upended the political order of the Middle East, sweeping from power the country’s pro-American monarch, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. The forces that coalesced to ouster the Shah from power were broad, including not only religious conservatives, but liberal, socialists, communists, and national minorities. However, it was the country’s religious establishment, under the leadership of Ayatollah Khomeini, that were ultimately able to take power and establish an “Islamic Republic”.   This week on This Is Revolution we take a deep divide into the Iranian Revolution and its aftermath. What were its origins? Which political forces contested for power during the revolution and how has that contest played out in the post-revolutionary era? And in what ways has Iran's continuous relationship with the United States affected political developments over the last four decades.   About Eskandar Sadeghi-Boroujerdi: Eskandar Sadeghi-Boroujerdi is an Assistant Professor in Comparative Political Theory at Goldsmiths College, University of London. He was previously a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Oxford (2016-2019), where he also obtained his doctorate (2010-2014). Eskandar has published widely on modern Iranian and Shi'i Islamic political thought and is a series editor of Radical Histories of the Middle East (Oneworld). His monograph Revolution and its Discontents: Political Thought and Reform in Iran, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2019.   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

“The hacienda is run like a baronial fief. The laws of the state are not applied in the latifundium without the tacit or formal consent of the large landowners. The authority of political or administrative officials is in fact subject to the authority of the landowner in his domain. The latter considers his latifundium to be outside the jurisdiction of the state and he disregards completely the civil rights of the people who live within his property. He collects excise taxes, grants monopolies, and imposes sanctions restricting the liberty of the laborers and their families.” -Jose Carlos Mariategui   Peru’s long struggle for democracy continues with their current presidential election. A nation that has overcome a series of corrupt leaders, military coups and deadly Civil War within the last 30 years, will the election of Pedro Castillo, a former elementary school teacher and socialist, over the daughter of former Peruvian dictator Alberto Fujimori can be Peru’s moment to break free of their western economic shackles?   Will the far-right Keiko Fujimori be able to overturn the election using the Trump playbook citing baseless claims of electoral fraud? With military support, will Fujimori be able to call for something that is all too common in Peru, a military coup.   About Camilo Gòmez: Camilo is a podcaster and freelance journalist in Peru.

Like all forms of entertainment in the United States, sports has a particular way in which racial identity is showcased often to maintain the hierarchies that plague American society. In this episode we will examine racism in sports and ask, "Does the utility of race in American sports serve the needs of the ruling class?"   About Adolph Reed, Jr. Adolph Leonard Reed Jr. is an American professor emeritus of political science at the University of Pennsylvania, specializing in studies of issues of racism and U.S. politics. He has taught at Yale, Northwestern, and the New School for Social Research and he has written on racial and economic inequality   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

“We come to you and ask you to enforce the law because if it is not enforced here, when will it be enforced? Are police officers going to be allowed to shoot from 90 to 100 bullets into an apartment of citizens of this country, whether they be black or white, poor, rich, Panthers or not Panthers, to use the color our laws to do that, to tear the place asunder, to beat people, to shoot them, to maim them for life, to kill them? Are they going to be able to? That is the question that you have to ask yourselves. These defendants, as police officers, are they going to be allowed to violate those rights in the face of the law, in the face of our Constitution, in the face of the Bill of Rights? I say you won’t let them, and you will come back with a just and fair verdict which history will be proud of. That is what we ask and that is what the evidence demands.”   That very prescient quote from Flint Taylor was said in 1977 during the trial of the cops that murdered Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton. Sadly, not much has changed in the demands of the people to the people charged with protecting and serving the public. Much emphasis has been made in recent history on the unjustified homicide of Black citizens by police malfeasance. Another major source of police abuse has been the use of torture by police to elicit confessions and general cooperation by citizens. In this episode we will talk to former Black Panther Fred Hampton's Lawyer, Flint Taylor about his 50-year battle against police abuse and torture and inquire if police reform is truly possible.   About Flint Taylor: G. FLINT TAYLOR, a graduate of Brown University and Northwestern Law School, is a founding partner of the People’s Law Office in Chicago, an office which has been dedicated to litigating civil rights, police violence, government misconduct, and death penalty cases for 45 years. Among the landmark cases that Mr. Taylor has litigated are the Fred Hampton Black Panther case; the Greensboro, North Carolina case against the Ku Klux Klan and Nazis; the Ford Heights Four case in which four innocent men received a record $36 million settlement for their wrongful conviction and imprisonment; and a series of cases arising from a pattern and practice of police torture and cover-up by former Chicago police commander Jon Burge, former Mayor Richard M. Daley, former State’s Attorney Richard Devine, and numerous other police and government officials, five of which have been settled against the City of Chicago and Cook County for a total of approximately $26 million. He obtained a multi-million dollar settlement for a seven year old boy who was falsely accused by the Chicago Police of the murder of 11 year old Ryan Harris and has represented, and continues to represent, numerous other wrongfully convicted persons who have spent decades in prison and on death row, including Burge torture victims Michael Tillman, Darrell Cannon, Ronald Kitchen, Alonzo Smith, Anthony Holmes, Victor Safforld, Shawn Whirl, and Jackie Wilson, exonerees Randy Steidl, Paul Terry, Ronald Jones, Jerry Miller, Oscar Walden, Lewis Gardner, Paul Phillips, Terrill Swift, and Jonathan Barr, and the first woman jailhouse lawyer in Illinois, Maxine Smith.   Get Flint's Book, "The Torture Machine" from Haymarket Books here: https://www.haymarketbooks.org/books/1642-the-torture-machine     Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

Currently in Colombia protesters are facing brutal reprisals by the U.S. backed regime. Like in many countries in the global south the austerity imposed state policies to protect the ravages of capitalism post 2008 crash are causing citizens from broad sectors of society to form coalitions to challenge government agendas to bleed the poor even further to cover for the abuses of capital that have brought forth the push towards austerity. On this episode, we will investigate Colombia's battle for economic humanity.   About Ajamu Baraka: Ajamu Baraka is a geopolitical analyst, organizer, writer, and human rights defender with over 48 years of movement work in the U.S. and internationally.

In Aviva Chomsky’s latest book, “Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolution, Violence and the Roots of Migration” she speaks of collective memory by saying: “All memory is, in a sense, constructed. As individuals or as members of groups, we privilege some memories over others, and we create coherent and meaningful stories and understandings of our past and present out of fragments of memory. Forgetting is an inevitable part of memory. By highlighting-remembering certain details, events, or interpretations, we erase or forget others. We forget because our individual and collective histories overflow with detail that would form a chaotic blur if we did not form them into coherent narratives. But when we rely on one narrative, we may be suppressing others. “   Racist rhetoric regarding immigrants as well as draconian policy on immigration didn’t start with Donald Trump, and it doesn’t seem to be ending under the current Biden administration either. The United States intervention in Central American politics has been a long-standing affair with disastrous results for the people of the region. Weather it’s the CIA backed coups in the name of U.S private industry, Drug War Policy, or suppressing Leftist uprisings, or assassinating democratically elected leaders, the United States has been a central part of the current wave of “migrant caravans”.   About Aviva Chomsky: Much of my scholarly work can be traced back to the year I spent working for the United Farm Workers union back in 1976-77. I credit that experience with sparking my interest in the Spanish language, in migrant workers and immigration, in labor history, in social movements and labor organizing, in multinationals and their workers, in how global economic forces affect individuals, and how people collectively organize for social change.   My recent work has been in three main areas: the Cuban revolution, northern Colombia's coal industry, and immigration and undocumentedness in the United States. Thematically, I incorporate the issues of colonialism, economic development, migration, race, labor, environment, and global inequality. My book Linked Labor Histories looks at globalization as a long historical process with labor history at its center. It examines how employers have used regional inequalities to gain access to cheaper workers through immigration, plant relocation, and by using the threat of these two tactics to discipline their workers. I focus on several interrelated case studies in New England and Colombia, including the textile industry, the banana industry, and the coal industry, to argue that local labor histories are best understood in a global context. I recently published a brief, analytical college-level text on the Cuban Revolution, two books on immigration: They Take Our Jobs! And Twenty Other Myths about Immigration, and Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal, and a book on Central America's Forgotten History. My current research weaves together labor and environmental histories, focusing on a region of Colombia where Indigenous and Afro-descended peoples have long evaded state control. Today they face an onslaught of extractivist projects and changing legal and social meanings of race and ethnicity in the context of continent-wide movements for plurinationalism and alternative visions of economic development.   Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

“For many ages to come the old Adam will be so strong in us that everybody will need to do some work if he is to be contented. We shall do more things for ourselves than is usual with the rich today, only too glad to have small duties and tasks and routines. But beyond this, we shall endeavour to spread the bread thin on the butter-to make what work there is still to be done to be as widely shared as possible. Three-hour shifts or a fifteen-hour week may put off the problem for a great while. For three hours a day is quite enough to satisfy the old Adam in most of us! “   That quote from John Maynard Keynes for a shortened work week and more time for leisure is not just a vision for an aristocratic elite, but what Keynes thought would be a reality for all. It was Keynes utopian vision of what we could achieve under capitalism. Keyes couldn’t have predicted the rise of neoliberal economics in the 70’s and the presidency of Reagan in the U.S. and Thatcher in the UK that went to war on labor rights. The gig economy and “hustle culture” promote longer work hours. The tech world is filled with stories of people feeling forced to put in over 50-60 hours per week.   But, with the rise automation and technology are we truly on the precipice of robots taking our jobs?   Is capitalism automating us out of work? Or is automation the pathway to a communist utopia?   About Aaron Benanav: Aaron Benanav is an economic historian and social theorist.

As the Boomer Generation hits retirement age, we're looking at a 68 trillion dollar transfer of wealth to the younger generation. THE GUARDIANS is a revealing investigative documentary set in Las Vegas, Nevada that exposes allegations of corruption within the Nevada Guardianship and Family Court systems involving the legal kidnapping of elderly people. The film shines a light on a lucrative business that drains seniors’ life-savings and robs them of their freedoms.   Victims and their families are caught in a scheme that has allowed corrupt court-appointed guardians to take total control over their healthcare and financial decisions. Armed with court-orders obtained under dubious circumstances, guardians are able to forcibly remove elderly wards from their homes, isolate them from their families and systematically empty their bank accounts.   In an unfolding saga that reaches to the top level of government, a growing number of Las Vegas victims come together to seek justice, restitution and freedom. Through their fight, the film exposes the scope of the systemic abuse of some of the most vulnerable members of our society.   As our aging population is about to record the largest transfer of wealth in history, we must protect them and their families from those that have been using a broken system to take advantage. For 40 years nothing and no one has stood in their way. Until now.   About Filmmaker Billie Mintz: BILLIE MINTZ is an award winning filmmaker who has produced and directed feature length documentaries and narrative short films.

Special Election Stream w/ Janani Ramachandran There is a special election for California State Assembly District 18 because the person that held that seat, Rob Bonta, became the State's Attorney General. We'll be speaking with one of the candidates running in the primary election that going down June 29th, progressive Democrat Janani Ramachandran.   About Janani: Janani is an East Bay native. She is the daughter and granddaughter of immigrants from a small South Indian village who worked tirelessly every day to give her the opportunity to pursue her dreams. Janani’s passion for justice was evident at an early age. At 16, while relocating to India for a few years, she founded a nonprofit that built libraries in under-resourced schools in her local community. After graduating from Stanford University, Janani worked as a home-visiting case manager at a community health clinic, serving immigrant mothers experiencing domestic violence and homelessness.   Witnessing the horrors her clients faced at the hands of our inequitable legal system, she was driven to make a difference as a lawyer and attended Berkeley Law. There, Janani represented tenants facing eviction from some of Oakland’s most notoriously corrupt landlords. This inspired her to want to affect change at a higher level. She has previously served on the Oakland Public Ethics Commission, and currently serves on the California Commission on Asian and Pacific Islander American Affairs. She recently worked as an attorney at Family Violence Appellate Project, pursuing legal appeals and advocacy efforts to improve access to justice for all survivors of abuse.   Janani is running for State Assembly because the time for timid ideas is over. We need bold solutions and leaders with the courage to fight for them.   With your help, we can put the people first in Sacramento and have California’s first South Asian Assemblywoman – by electing Janani Ramachandran, who is fearless in the fight for justice.
