  1. Perhaps the most critical flaw in our formulations of race and class is that they are assumed to be phenotypical markers or economic locations ahistorically derived and acontextually applied. Our current understanding of race and class did not arrive as the culmination of inevitable objective, historical logic. Race and class acquired meaning over time and are not comprehensive outside of that development.
  2. Low unemployment and booming industry during WWII sparked fears that pro-union laws would help undermine the region’s racial order as blacks returning to the South from overseas were being organized by labor. Southerners were concerned that labor organizing might fuel civil rights activism and that close enforcement of the FLSA would cause wage leveling along racial lines.
