[Marxism] Trotsky on the white worker

Don't forget, at this point in history Du Bois had a set of views on the
CPUSA which were still evolving. In 1935 his Black Reconstruction was
laying out a vision of American history that was quite divergent from the
stage view of history promoted by the CPUSA. Also the Molotov-Ribbentrop
pact would alienate many Blacks within months of this exchange between
Trotsky and CLR. Claude McKay's recently discovered/published novel Amiable
with Big Teeth is interesting in this regard because it takes on the
earlier Ethiopia solidarity campaign.

What does Trotsky mean by "separate" here? Did Trotsky not agree with Du
Bois and not Garvey?

I know Stalinists love to share Du Bois' attacks on Trotsky... But
didn't know if they disagreed on this issue.
