Discussion on Ending the Oppression of Black People - further discussion of the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal) March 1st, 7 pm at Revolution Books

This week's issue of Revolution newspaper responds to a letter relevant to this important question from a reader in prison:

Discussion on the CONSTITUTION for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal)

Reply to Letter on the Section "Minority and Formerly Oppressed Nationalities"

Dear Reader,
We thank you for writing Revolution about the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal). This letter appeared in #224, as "Prisoners Debate the Section ‘Minority and Formerly Oppressed Nationalities.'"
You raise a number of criticisms and concerns. The heart of the criticism is contained in your statements "it should be the right of all [oppressed nationalities] to self determination" and "any way I look at it, I see you can't allow African Americans the right to secede but not Mexican-Americans or Native Americans.
I see no reason why RCP could not have gone across the board with Blacks, Mexicans, and Natives having equality in determining their future."

Here we want to answer these and related points.  (read entire exchange here.)
