Frenchy - that's the point. They are absolutely oblivious to it. They know that their lives are full of poverty and angst. The rich make them think it's because black folks are taking their jobs or whatever, when in reality it is because they are being exploited by wealthy whites.
That's the point precisely!
Where we disagree is that I don't think that in the absence of Black folks to blame, they will "turn" on Capitalism. They may turn on the currently wealthy, or other minorities, or some other thing, but I don't see them dismantling Capitalism. I see the same old system with new people at the top. They don't seem to want equality, even between themselves.
