This article examines the dynamics of the 2020 US elections in counterpoint to the antiracist uprising in defense of Black lives earlier in the year. The complex mediations of race and class in the United States are centred in the analysis of the election campaign and its aftermath. Failure by the American Left to build an antiracist working-class movement, it is argued, could be disastrous in the face of a resurgent far-Right.
