Professor and iconoclast Norman Finkelstein's long-awaited book is finally out! He and Briahna discuss chapters on Ta-Nehisi Coates & Kimberlé Crenshaw in the wake of news that those authors and others have been omitted from the African American AP curriculum. Does the cancel culture critic have a defense of these figures being canceled despite his substantive agreement with them? Also, what does Norman, a staunch advocate of Palestinian rights, make of Ilhan Omar's ejection from the Foreign Affairs committee? The critic of identity politics weighs in on the choice to defend Ilhan as "a black woman." Finally, Norman gives his takes on the Bernie movement, the future of electoralism, and everyone's favorite topic -- Marianne 2024.
