Dwell Time...A Conversation With Eric Foner

Jeffrey McNary

"The meaning of "interdependence" requires a concept of dependency, "white"depends on the definition of black, and the meaning of "freedom" on the definition of unfreedom", writes Eric Foner in his introduction to his, The Story of American Freedom. "No study of a subject as complex and multifaceted as freedom", he continues, "can claim to be definitive." And it's his exploration of freedom, that delicate balance of its themes and vivid disassociations which run continuously through his writings.

Understanding Whiteness


Privilege and the powers granted by privilege are the conflicts of whiteness. Sunday, the 22nd, was another timely event held in conjunction with the month long celebration of Enero Zapatista. The conversation should be a focus of the occupy movement and the dialogues that have opened as a result. Sunday's event was a panel discussion that presented perspectives from womyn of color and a white ally, on whiteness and its oppression on society.

DJ Kuttin Kandi, on social control, "They (white capitalists) divided the people...they accomplished creating a system of racial oppression...this is how whiteness was created...dividing workers into black and white."

Indiana Rogers, on acknowledging whiteness, "[Oppression is] a system of power relations... people of color have continued to be the interest of white supremacy."
