Where can I watch or read a good critique of middle-class white socialism and the ways that its centering of volunteer-focused revolutionary work further marginalizes those who need their free time for rest? Black, Indigenous, and/or Crip-identified speakers preferred, especially if they're also socialists of some stripe and value continuing to build broad-based solidarity with those and other groups.
