Did America Ever Really Work?
umair haque

The American Dream is a myth.

The contradictions of capitalism operate no matter skin color.

Your linkage of slavery, segregation, and stagnation is a unique one for me. I think you must include the period of desegregation in your analysis. With desegregation, POC had their first opps to participate more fully in the economy. Once the spreading of jobs began and the war economy ended, that’s when the Dream started to fade.

Good read.
