It’s both stunning and unsurprising to see how little progress has been made at SFSU in half a century. I heard a professor during covid say that all of her black students and most of her Latin students dropped when classes went online. This was because of the digital divide which this school has failed to address in any meaningful way for students who have been forced out. As this film shows, black students have always been an institutionally acceptable target for collateral damage and structural violence at SFSU. It seems like progress that the outright, outspoken, proud kind of antiblack racism has mostly disappeared. But that just underlines the fact that this institution of white moderates is proving MLK and Malcolm X right when both argued that white moderates are actually worse than clansmen, because they pretend to be on the side of black people while actually giving power to the same systemic antiblackness.
