An interesting analysis of race, anarchism and class from South African organisation the Workers Solidarity Federation from 1998.
INTRODUCTION BY BLACK FLAG:
We recently observed a very fruitful discussion on race and class on the internet, particularly around "black" anarchism, special oppressions and the desirability of separate organisation.
