#Black Lives Matter versus Climate Change? Reading Naomi Klein and John Metta – Mark Foster & Mary Hunter

Naomi Klein writes powerfully about the relation between racism and climate change; John Metta writes powerfully about why it’s hard to have cross-racial discussions about race.  These two articles are related because they both address the intersections between systems and individuals. Our focused discussion will go over the main points of the articles and open up questions of how we identify ourselves as individuals and as members of groups, and how those identities affect our understanding of, and responses to, both racism and climate change.
