Class and the Politics of the Black Community in the Obama Age

“The large majority of the Negroes who have put on the finishing touches of our best colleges are all but worthless in the development of their people.”

Carter G. Woodson, Harvard trained historian and creator of Black History Month.

Due to the importance of depicting Black Americans as a permanent underclass in the function of capitalism in this country, people outside the Black community are generally oblivious to the existence of the class distinctions that have wreaked havoc among Blacks from the earliest points of American history.
