Interview with J. Sakai, author of “Settlers: Mythology of the White Proletariat”

This interview with J. Sakai was conducted June 17, 2003 on KPFT Pacifica Radio. Sakai is author of “Settlers: Mythology of the White Proletariat” as well as many articles on race, class and radical politics. The transcript of this audio became the pamphlet, “Stolen At Gunpoint: Interview with J. Sakai On the Chicano-Mexicano National Question”, but the audio is being offered for those interested to hear Sakai in his own words.

Update: The text of the book is now available at

  1. As i understand it from talking with the main persyn behind Kersplebedeb Publishing – one of the main distributors of “Settlers” in recent years – the 3rd Edition, the so-called “Black Cover” version is basically totally out of stock now, baring someone finding some copies of it in a basement somewhere.

    There is a PDF scan of it available online though

    Additionally, Sakai is supposedly working on an updated 4th Edition of the text, but the project keeps getting put on the back burner (as well as the publication of his collaboration with Butch Lee on New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina and Afrikan genocide) and so when it comes out (which it will) it may just end up being a re-print of the 3rd Edition.

    I would encourage all radicals seeking a genuine analysis of national oppression (what people are really talking about when they talk about “racial oppression”), settlerism, White power and anti-colonial liberation to pick up this book and read it with an open mind!
