Pulido, Laura. “Race, Class, and Political Activism: Black, Chicana/o, and Japanese-American Leftists in Southern California, 1968-1978.” Antipode 34 (2002): 762-788. (26)
Minority activism is not something that stands as a singular in terms of history. Held deep in Southern race conflict and Mid-West Native American confrontation, it remains a near constant in the course of American ideological change. As Laura Pulido ruminates in her piece “Race, Class, and Political Activism: Black, Chicana/o, and Japanese-American Leftists in Southern California, 1968-1978”, activism on the part of the minority is something which Los Angeles and other parts of California have become known for. Through the exploration of the Black Panther Movement, East Wind, and CASA, Pulido examines the nature of political organization and its effect on the state, on legislature, and, perhaps most importantly, on the social compass of the state of California as well as the nation. Through her research involving these three organizations, Pulido comes upon her two major points in the piece: “class position is mediated by race” and that “class experiences are always racialized”185. Though it may not seem like a supreme realization, this statement is critical in understanding the diverse and unique dialogue among various races, systems of class, genders, political movements and religious entities. The intricacies regarding past social movements in California, as Pulido examines, is critical in understanding those of the United States and the relationship they still have with more modern day revolutions throughout the country.
