    white south eastern coal miners' dislike for black people based on black strike-breakers brought in to cripple the miners' unions, and how the media made this ugly prejudice somehow justifiable during the presidential election, I noted with a great anger that these black laborers were not free men at all, but unfairly incarcerated forced labor. This has been one of the absolutely clearest, most transparent examples of the dominant power structure using race to undermine and break the solidarity of the American working class. Was anybody else paying attention? You, BOHICA...thank you for this.
