The Life of an American Jew in Racist Marxist Israel

I suppose one could be both a racist and a marxist, but he wouldn't be a very consistent marxist.
A Marxist does indeed say that nations and race are an invention of the bourgeoise but you of course need to realize who created Marxism in the first place. Karl Marx also said that ideology was a cloak for class interests and a bourgeoise prejudice yet Marxism rapidly developed into an ideology itself. Of course one thing that Marxists can agree on is that in  Lenin's words, "Telling the truth is a bourgeoise prejudice," and Gramsci, an Italian Communist, and co-founder of cultural Marxism said that all truth and morality is socially constructed.
