>Is there a white wage?  Well whites generally make 1/3 more than blacks, but
that is not the same as saying there is a white wage.  What that says is that
the result of racism is that less whites form the core of the working class.
More whites are likely to be employed in professions, as managers, or have
achieved seniority to assume a "craft-status."  That is all the product of
racism to be sure, but it's not the result of the decision of the white
workers to join their white bosses.  It also means that as the economy
provides fewer and fewer higher wage production jobs, the inequities will be
maintained and expanded. <

You are more than less correct. The fundamental dichotomy of wages in America
is between North and South and it has never been different since at least the
Civil War. That is, the black and white workers of the North make more than
the black and white workers of the colonial areas of the South. Every
economic indicator proves this. In other words the black workers of the North
make more wages than the white workers of the former plantation areas of the
South.

Or why come North in the first place? A comparison of wages between black
people and white people is phony sociology. Compare the wages of all the
blacks in any industry of the North with all the whites in any industry of
the North and let's see what we come up with.

Compare the wages of all the blacks in any industry of the South with all the
whites in any industry of the South and let's see what we come up with.

Compare the wages of all the blacks and whites in any industry of the North
with all the blacks and whites in any industry of the South and let's see
what we come up with.

Compare the wages of all the blacks in any industry of the North with all the
whites in any industry of the South and let's see what we come up with.

Anyone that takes the time to do this will say "damn, there is a national
colonial question on continental America." There will always be those who
say, "No, you do not understand racism."

Color discrimination still exists and is live and well in America, but it
doesn't eclipse the national and colonial question. The color question in
America is what the religious question is in Ireland - a form of struggle and
excretion. No mater what their religion, the workers in Ireland exist in a
colonial relationship with England.

It is true that the national colonial question is undergoing transmutation.
