Quote of the Day 5-11-17 (from 1901 and still relevant)

Posted: May 11, 2017 in Capitalism

“The capitalist class seeks . . . to foster and increase color prejudice and race hatred between the white worker and the black, so as to make their social and economic interests appear to be separate and antagonistic, in order that the workers of both races may thereby be more easily and completely exploited.”

–“Negro Resolution,” 1901 Social Party convention
