>>Black union members who live in the ghetto, often have
one foot in and one foot out, of the labor
aristocracy. Any union member, black white or brown,
who lives in a suburb next door to an apartment
building owner on one side, and a real estate agent on
the other side, is part of the labor aristocracy.<<

So most union members are in it! Next someone will say those Honduran
plantation workers are part of the aristocracy, because they make more than
the urban poor in Cambodia. What earthly use is such a theory?
