Doin It With Kwaisi France: Alex Walden Pt. 1

Alex Walden

Alex Walden brings us the perspective from a Bernie supporter in the Bay.

Part 1 of my sitdown with artist, activist and Bernie Sanders supporter Alex Walden talking politics and the system within the Democratic Primary. From Oakland to Brooklyn, we’re Killing The Breeze.

Alex Walden

Alex is an intelligent, passionate and committed activist who has dedicated his life to art, children and politics in the Bay Area. He was given, in his own words, a second lease on life after being arrested as a teenager. As a Bernie Sanders supporter, feminist and international traveler, his beliefs on capitalism, indigenous people and humanism form the basis of his support for Bernie Sanders.

After establishing his foundation as someone who was white but was more comfortable around blacks for year and whose feminism and activism are influenced by Bell Hooks, Audre Lorde and Michelle Alexander, we decided to frame the debate as support for candidates based upon an extrapolation of our values system. The conversation ends up touching upon feminism, corporatism, racism and sexism.

Part 1 of the conversation really focuses on intersectionality, a concept often used in critical theories to describe the ways in which oppressive institutions (racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, classism, etc.) are interconnected and cannot be examined separately from one another. Alex provides great clarity in showing how this belief explains his support for Bernie.

Per my writing, podcasts and guest appearances, we know my support for Hillary is based on the specificity of her plans regarding marginalized groups in America along with the ability to have her plans implemented. What’s funny is that, unlike many debates or conversations concerning political candidates, we are able to understand the shortcomings of our candidates.

What’s funny is that the conversation ends with Alex touching upon the meaning of his child, baby’s mother and the world he wants to live in as opposed to the world that he has been living in. We continue along that vein in Part 2 of our conversation.
