The assumption that classes constitute monoliths (with the addition of a
distinct class of black workers) just rings hollow.  The discussion
seems to go sour when that sociological assumption is allowed to trump
the obvious need to unravel historical processes that involve internal
contradictions that exist within these classes.

In fact, some of these discussions of class, class interests and
productive forces are so mechanistic that it makes me wonder whether
we're talking about Dilbert Marx rather than Karl.
