Socialist Worker nr. 2126, nov 08 – side 9

Note: Frank Sinatra er efter sin død blevet lovprist i medierne. De har endog glorificeret hans forbindelser til mafiaen og hans skørtejægeri. Men pressen har fuldstændig glemt at nævne, at gamle Frankie-boy engang tilhørte “de røde”.

International Socialisme nr. 3, dec 92 – side 34
Note: Havde oprøret i LA i april 92 ikke henledt opmærksomheden på de sociale problemer, som særligt de sorte i USA lider under, havde et blik på den kulturelle udvikling kunnet give et godt fingerpeg. Den sorte rapmusik fra ghettoerne har bredt sig og vinder indflydelse overalt. Film af den sorte instruktør Spike Lee er af høj kunstnerisk kvalitet og har hver gang også et politisk budskab. Hans næste film er om Malcolm X, og den ventes at få premiere til foråret.

Note: Siste show + Pæne mænd uden politik
 
Joan Hansen: USA: Strejker mangler støtte
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 43, okt 88 – side 7
Note: Det er en udbredt opfattelse på venstrefløjen, at den amerikanske arbejderklasse er enormt tilbagestående, den faglige organisering er lav, fagbureaukratiet endnu tættere forbundet med systemet end herhjemme, at de kritikløst høster frugterne af USAs imperialistiske dominans og jubler over Reagan-administrationens politik.

Lee Sustar + Lance Selfa: USA: Where's Jesse?
Socialist Review nr. 113, okt 88 – side 13

International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 36, apr 69 – side 8
Note: The first major stage has ended for a new form of black organisation based on black industrial workers. The organisation is the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement and is made up of black workers at the Hamtramck Assembly plant, formerly Dodge Main, of the Chrysler Corporation. Hamtramck is an industrial suburb completely within the city limits of Detroit. Both the town and the plant were for many years overwhelmingly Polish. Now the plant is 70 per cent black but the union local (UAW Local 3), the plant management and lower supervision, and the Hamtranick city administration is essentially Polish.

Steve Fox: The Notebook: US Motor Workers
International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 32, mar 68 – side 5
Note: At the April 1967 UAW convention in Detroit a demonstration of production workers was organised, at first by the official leadership. At the last moment Walter Reuther, UAW International President, put pressure on local leaders to have it called off. In spite of this effort, several thousand auto-workers turned out in the pouring rain during a working day to express their feelings.
 
Henry Paley + Dick Logan: ‘People’s Capitalism’?
International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 5, jun 61 – side 24
