Marxism and Racism: A Primer

I would like to recommend the article below, which sets in historical context the modern leftist/socialist claim to carry the banner of anti-racism.  There are indeed historical connections between leftist ideology and racism, and certainly there is no lack of evidence that Marxist ideas can inspire mass murder.  Where the author falls short, however, is in his failure to recognize the fact that race has become the ideological touchstone of the modern left -- that literally everything and everyone the left dislikes is now "racist".  Moreover, the knee-jerk anti-white prejudices of the left are themselves racist, albeit a form of racism that probably the likes of Marx and Engels never foresaw.
