The Black Agenda Report’s Glen Ford along with Cynthia McKinney and others spoke at the Which Way Forward for the Black Left? meeting organized by the Harlem Tenants Council on May 31st. Ford isn’t for waiting for the Obama administration to show its mythic “progressive” heart. For Glen, with trillions to bail out banks the Obama administration has already shown, definitively, which class it works for and what that means for black people. Ford knows the ground covered by that particularly American intersection of race and class well and that is from where he fires his shots. In the process he takes aim at Michael Eric Dyson who supports the administration’s policies yet questions Obama’s “embrace of blackness”.
