Fanon "Concerning Violence" today, with genuflections toward Black Skin, White Masks, but also reparations, redlining, highway infrastructure. Discussions of secularity and pluralism as against anarchism and fundamentalism in non-violence literature deferred from the end of last week will have to be woven into the mix at some point. Also, handing back mid-terms, and given the grade-fixation of so many Berkeley students, expect this will be the occasion of energetic renegotiations and possibly recriminations.
