Anti-racist activist Tommy DiMassimo, known for rushing Trump's stage during the 2016 elections, discusses why he decided to charge at Trump and the repression against him which followed, the role of a white comrade in the anti-racism struggle, and moving beyond white guilt and liberalism.

In the interview, Tommy shares that the moment he ran after Trump on stage was not a random or unplanned event, rather the culmination of years of anti-racist activism. Then, he describes the political repression against him, enacted by the Feds, in the year following the event. Along with this, we talk about the role of white people who want to aid in the anti-racist struggle, specifically how to move beyond self-gratifying liberalism, inaction, and comfortability.
