Watch Rage Against The Machine’s Documentary on The Myth of Whiteness

The politically-charged band teams with The Ummah Chroma on a powerful documentary short on the invention of whiteness.

Never ones to let fascism go unchecked, Rage Against The Machine has released a documentary in response to last week’s attempt at a coup on Capitol Hill.

Teaming with The Ummah Chroma arts collective, the politically-charged band lends their music and a grip of concert footage to the new documentary, Killing in Thy Name. The 15-minute doc follows a teacher attempting to demystify the myth of whiteness to a group of children, explaining the violent history behind the invention of race. “Living in the States, you’re living in one of the most brutal societies in the history of the world,” says bandleader, Zack de la Rocha, in an archival interview featured in the documentary.

“Any society or any government or any system that is set up solely to profit a wealthy class while the majority of the people toil and suffer and sell their labor power, so long as that system’s only true motive is profit interest and not the maintenance and the betterment of the population, to meeting human needs, then that society should not stand, ” de la Rocha adds.
