MONDAY 10AM: Tacky’s Revolt The Story of an Atlantic Slave War | Vincent Brown
Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

American capitalism created a profound relationship, deeply integrated into the Mexican labor market. Anti-Mexican negativism is a denial of the fact that American capitalism and empire, ever since at least when the US seized half of Mexican territory in the Mexican-American war, have been fundamentally integrated. It's this idea that we can benefit from the exploitation of other people's labor and land, without including them as citizens in our country. That's the core of the contradiction.

Journalist Daniel Denvir explores nativism as an organizing principle of American politics - from the enduring mechanisms of exclusion dating back to the nation's origins as settler colonialist project, to the modern uses of anti-immigrant policies in service of capitalist and imperial profit, and against the interests of the working class on both sides of the border.

on the rise of anti-immigrant politics on the right and center, and his book All-American Nativism: How the Bipartisan War on Immigrants Explains Politics as We Know It from Verso Books.
