Full instauration.

Whether you are a longtime 21st century proletarian literature enthusiast and a loyal fanatic of Raving Radicals Bathed in Blax, or completely new to this here blog, I wish you the warmest of greetings, esteemed reader.

You may or may not have noticed that the last chapter of Raving Radicals has been up for over three weeks. That means we have reached full “Instauration”. All four Parts are now available here for your reading pleasure.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Soon enough physical copies of Raving Radicals Bathed in Blax will be available unto the masses. That’s right. Since the bourgeois publishing industry has little interest in promoting 21st century proletarian literature, I will be pursuing print-on-demand publishing. The revised manuscript will include a number of improvements, such as improved scene breaks, illustrations, and an appendix with a glossary and maps.

In summary, now available are:

Chapter 46 “Back to Africa”. In this chapter, Tisha travels to the Uhuru Union, a pan-Africanist socialist state located in Sub-Saharan Africa, on behalf of the Socialist Rromani Republic of the Banat to establish diplomatic ties between the two emergent proletarian states.

Chapter 47 “The Pale Fox Strikes”. In this chapter, Wither slapte, Izzy, and Paty finally return to America, where Pedrocco’s dictatorship of the proletariat faces a number of problematic developments, including a bizarre atmospheric hologram menace.

Chapter 48 “Last Days of the Great and Powerful”. In this chapter, Wither slapte and Paloma discover the true source of the holographic menace, and the Radical Army prepares for a final epic assault on the last stronghold of the bourgeois mainframe. Meanwhile, the neo-Neanderthalist threat looms.

Chapter 49 La Santa Muerte’s Final Knell”. In this grand finale, our beloved radical communist gang face down the mad scientists of HVAARP and their army of privately contracted security goons. Expect the unexpected.

Identity and Representation in „Raving Radicals Bathed in Blax”

We keep coming back to the question of representation because identity is always about representation. People forget that when they wanted white women to get into the workforce because of the world war, what did they start doing? They started having a lot of commercials, a lot of movies, a lot of things that were redoing the female image, saying, “Hey, you can work for the war, but you can still be feminine.” So what we see is that the mass media, film, TV, all of these things, are powerful vehicles for maintaining the kinds of systems of domination we live under, imperialism, racism, sexism etc. Often there´s a denial of this and art is presented as politically neutral, as though it is not shaped by a reality of domination.
