The Russians have learned that by betraying their own Communist Revolution, they have plunged their country into the sceptic mire of primitive capitalism. Despite the Russian capitalists ruthlessly exploiting their own working people in the usual bourgeois fashion – the capitalist West has no respect for modern Russia.
Mr. ROBESON: In Russia I felt for the first time like a full human being. No color prejudice like in Mississippi, no color prejudice like in Washington. It was the first time I felt like a human being. Where I did not feel the pressure of color as I feel [it] in this Committee today.
It must be remembered that it is ‘capitalism’ that generates racism, and it is capitalism that must be continuously and ruthlessly criticised to facilitate the historical transition into Socialism.
