Chapter 12 - Class
Class Racist: One who is racializing the classes, supporting policies of racial capitalism against those race-classes, and justifying them by racist ideas about those race-classes.
Antiracist Anticapitalist: One who is opposing racial capitalism.
"Whoever creates the norm creates the hierarchy and positions their own race-class at the top of the hierarchy." Pg. 153.
Conjoined twins - capitalism and racism - were born together with the transatlantic slave trade of African people.
"In the twenty-first century, persisting racial inequities in poverty, unemployment, and wealth show the lifework of the conjoined twins." Pg. 157.
The history of capitalism --of world warring, classing, slave trading, enslaving, colonizing, depressing wages, and dispossessing land and labor and resources and rights--bears out the conservative definition of capitalism." Pg. 161.
To be antiracist is to recognize neither poor Blacks nor elite Blacks as the truest representative of Black people.
To love capitalism can lead to a love racism. I will advocate to remove profit motive in areas such as education, healthcare, utilities, mass media and incarceration. I will advocate for policies that don't create hierarchy.
