Zero Squared #76: Black Anger and Black Politics

Jul 21st, 2016 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

zeropod76Margaret Kimberley discusses black anger and BLM on this week's episode. A regular columnist for the Black Agenda Report, Margaret Kimberley is also a regular guest on the podcast. We discuss broken window policing Michael Eric Dyson, white racism, police brutality, and the politics and the anti-politics of Black Lives Matter.

Next month’s book releases from Zero Books includes Daniel Coffeen’s Reading the Way of Things. If you’re a long time listener to my podcasts then you’re probably familiar with Daniel Coffeen and his Deleuzian guide to reading the world is available in paperback and as an e-book. I also want to announce that our membership site is about halfway to completion and that Coffeen has volunteered to be one of the first authors to lead our upcoming Zero Books’ philosophy workshops.

This episode includes clips from Glenn Loury’s bloggingheads.tv show wherein the author John McWhorter describes the need for a list of white victims who were killed under similar circumstances to Philando Castile or Eric Garner. McWhorter finds his list. There is also a clip from Heather MacDonald discussing her book “The War on the Cops," a clip of Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men, and some music from the Vaporwave artist Macintosh Plus. If you’re a fan of Vaporwave (or want to learn more about it) you might pick up Graton Tanner’s book Babbling Corpse which was published in June.
