Well, it seems to me that a substantial number of posts were arguments about 'race & its alleged non-relation to class struggles.' (It's simply irksome to have to debate those who allege non-relation between them.) That kind of 'discussion' is different from a more practical discussion of how to integrate anti-racist struggles in class struggles + left politics, of which I think we need more. I want to move beyond saying, 'anti-racism is part of class struggles,' 'race issues are working-class issues,' etc.
