In an interview at: http://www.agitatorindex.org/study/sakai.htm

"an anarchist veteran of the autoworkers' historic 1937 Flint Sit-Down 
strike told me that the strike had been Jim Crow, that one of the 
unpublicized demands had been to keep Black workers down as only 
janitors....or out of the plants altogether."

This is tendentious beyond belief.
