Sarah Thomason on about the disproportionate number of Latino workers and other workers of color in what we now call essential industries, from farm work to grocery stores. These conditions have contributed to the outrageously high death tolls we're seeing for this group from COVID-19. Plus, Bob Avakian, “The Oppression of Black People and Other People of Color,” and “Communism and Jeffersonian Democracy.”
