George Breitman: When Anti-Negro Prejudice Began

George Breitman wrote this essay in 1954 for Fourth International, the theoretical magazine of the Socialist Workers Party. While some people claim that racism has always existed, going back to the ancient Egyptians or the ancient Greeks, Breitman shows that anti-Black racism is a product of capitalism. This is part of our collection on Marxism and Black Struggle.
