Rethinking Liberation

In her essay Indigeneity, Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, Andrea Smith discusses the logics of slavery, genocide and war that inform the colonial project and undermine solidarity by nurturing complicity in the oppression of others. Imagining an alternative to the racial state, says Smith, requires building the political power to end colonialism and capitalism by challenging the basis of the United States itself. Doing so, she notes, necessitates rethinking liberation outside the framework of the white-supremacist state.
