Malcolm X said: “You can’t have capitalism without racism.” Why - and what can we learn from that? Heroic Black Lives Matter protests have swept the US, Britain and the world. Rivers of working-class young people, black and white, have taken up the struggle against racism and police violence. Sadly, police murder of black people is nothing new. Why has this movement exploded in this way right now? And why do socialists argue that racism is integral to the capitalist system - so that ending racism means overturning capitalism and fighting for socialism? This episode of Socialism looks at Black Lives Matter: you can’t have capitalism without racism.
