Bob Avakian on American Slavery & Genocide;
Plus “Critical Race Theory” & Forget the Alamo
A battle is raging over white supremacy and America. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn testifies about Trump’s mob assailing him with racist epithets during the January 6 insurrection. Tucker Carlson and fascist politicians lash out against “Critical Race Theory,” pushing for state-backed LIES to be taught in the schools. A new book, Forget the Alamo: The Rise and Fall of an American Myth, exposes the white supremacy of the Alamo’s myth and is immediately targeted for attack itself. The truth of this country is put powerfully by Bob Avakian, “The USA: Founded on Slavery and Genocide!” and what is needed is “Revolution, Nothing Less!” Now is the time, precisely when more people are seeing – or are open to – this truth, to wrench big advances in the struggle for a real revolution to bring about a much better future for all humanity.
