238-239. I The most striking fact about American economic history and politics is the brutal and systemic underdevelopment of Black people. Afro-Americans have been on the 1 How Capitalism Underdeveloped text pages 16_Layout 1 8/11/15 4:18 PM Page 2 2 How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America other side of one of the most remarkable and rapid accumulations of capital seen anywhere in human history, existing as a necessary yet circumscribed victim within the proverbial belly of the beast. The relationship is filled with paradoxes: each advance in white freedom was purchased by Black enslavement; white affluence coexists with Black poverty; white state and corporate power is the product in part of Black powerlessness; income mobility for the few is rooted in income stasis for the many.

Yet I also recognized: e final history of the systematic exploitation of Black women in capitalist America will not be written by whites, or by Black men, no matter how sympathetic they might be to the struggle against racism and patriarchy. Historically, Black women have carried the greatest burden in the battle for democracy in this country.
It was the educated Black middle class, consisting largely of school teachers, merchants, attorneys, physicians, and clergy, who formed the core leadership in the construction of African-American social institutions and most AfricanAmerican political movements: This is not to underestimate in any way the powerful and destructive role of class stratification within the Black community, especially in the years since How Capitalism was written. The real problem, however, isn’t the contradictory and accommodationist behavior of the Black middle class, but the exploitative policies and practices of the capitalist ruling class.
