I think the framing of Marx and Engels as racist, while correct, is disengenous in this essay because it ignores anarchism’s own dark history of racism, from proudhon to bakunin to Goldman and the black army’s progroms we can see similarly vile bigotry, sometimes even directly related to anarchist ideology such as with bakunin who says the reason a centralized state is bad is because it required a central bank that is run by Jews. I encourage the author of this essay to look into Anarchism’s history and recognize its hands are quite bloody as well, even if it is less than authoritarian ideologies
