Malcolm X once said, “You can’t have capitalism without racism.” Capitalism is dependent on racism as both a source of profit—beginning with slavery—but also as a means to divide and rule the working class. Under capitalism, wage slavery is the pivot around which all other inequalities and oppressions turn, but to perpetuate exploitation, racism is central. When one part of society can be pushed down and dehumanized, it is easier to keep all the oppressed and exploited down. Without a struggle against racism, the defeat of capitalism is impossible—just as without a struggle against capitalism, racism cannot be defeated. This talk will look at the Marxist approach to understanding, and fighting, capitalism and racism in the United States.
