      The so-called democracy that we have under capitalism can accommodate numerous reforms without diminishing the power of the ruling class. As a socialist and an alert Black woman, it is clear to me that it is not possible to achieve justice, especially economic justice, and equality under capitalism because capitalism was never designed for that to be the case. When I do political work, it is always important to be able to distinguish between issues and actions that have the potential ultimately to change the system and those that address symptoms of oppression more than causes. The assaults from the present system necessitate the most activists work for reforms, but those of us who are radicals understand that it is possible to do so at the very same time that we work for fundamental change -a revolution.

      The increasing power of the well-organized right wing makes this a difficult and challenging time to be an activist. The problems we face such as drugs, homelessness, and violence seem so overwhelming and complicated that cocooning and focusing on one’s personal life and career seem so much easier than figuring out what to do politically. In this situation the lack of visible models of successful activism becomes particularly debilitation to movement building.

      I think homosexuality embodies an innately radical critique of the traditional nuclear family, whose political function has been to constrict the sexual expression and gender roles of all of its members, especially women, lesbians, and gays. Being in structural opposition to the status quo because of one’s identity, however, is quite different from being consciously and actively opposed to the status quo because on is a radical and understands how the system works.
