MIM got tired of all the whining and insecure petty-bourgeois whites in the imperialist countries saying they were "exploited" without having done five minutes of reading or thought on what "exploited" means to a revolutionary scientist. So we wrote this web page for those imperialist country whites too hung-up to make any progress in their race-related thinking. We urge the imperialist country whites with a concern with white exploitation to put their political energy into linking up with truly exploited whites, the ones of eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia and scattered other places.
In a week, the poorest imperialist country white makes more money than a billion exploited people make in a year. If the white petty-bourgeoisie had the gumption in the imperialist countries, they could use their credit cards to hire 50 workers at a time in exploited countries. That's what Marx meant by "access to the means of production." It does not mean that everyone with the access to assets will bother to carry out a capitalist enterprise.
Fighting union struggles in the united $tates --with the exception of immigrant, migrant and prisoner unions-- only leads to a further crackdown on other WHITE workers exploited in the ex-Soviet bloc and Central Asia. Instead of trying to add another VCR for the bathroom or larger swimming pool in the backyard, the Western imperialist country whites who are too suspicious and racist to work with Third World people should be organizing as labor organizers or supporters to lift up the conditions of the 300 million workers who really are exploited and white-- in eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia. Such perpetually racial-based activists will never be communists, because the communists are the ones as Marx said who look out for the interests of the international proletariat as a whole. In a world with 6 billion people, the white-focussed are missing the overall picture, but having the overall picture is the job of communists and we do heartily endorse solidarity work with exploited whites. Working to raise the conditions of exploited and super-exploited workers, even if only the white ones in the world is still progressive.
Any trade unions from these countries wishing to receive promotion in the united $tates should write to MIM at [email protected] and we will list you as an organization imperialist country racially hung-up whites can work with instead of going to war-mongering fascism. Be sure to give contact information, maybe even bank account information. Remember that your work may save the whites in Amerika from going fascist and for that reason of the interests of the struggle here in the Western imperialist countries, we will not list any fascist-led unions here.
We call on the unions of the exploited whites to oppose all ethnic wars between exploited peoples and focus their fire on imperialism. We call on imperialist country whites who are too narrow to support outright internationalist communists to support unions of exploited and super-exploited workers in the ex-USSR but to do more to publicize the cause than to give financial aid to labor leaders who support one exploited ethnicity killing another, as is often happening in the ex-Soviet bloc.
|Country||approximate #of exploited whites|
|Argentina||15 million (very rough guess out of 29 million whites in Argentina)|
We did not forget about exploited whites in Albania, Azerbaijan, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechoslavakia, Estonia, Georgia, Kirgizstan, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. We are still investigating the conditions of whites in many other countries and apologize in advance for omitting any truly exploited or super-exploited white workers from mention here.
