White Supremacy in the Movement Against the Prison-Industrial Complex
Appel explores the role and various manifestations of white supremacy in leftist politics, specifically in the emergent movement against the prison-industrial complex. Her critique of white progressives is that their actions, though well intentioned, are laden with manifestations of white supremacy; she challenges them to embrace a more radical politics, one that makes antiracism a central tenet in any analysis and subsequent action against a white-supremacist state.
