Marx’s Letter to Lincoln (Slavery and Wage Slavery)

: June 26, 2020

Marx compared slavery to wage slavery, saying that whites “choose their masters.” This was in a letter to Abraham Lincoln.

So pick a side – someone who hates White Workers or supporter of Karl Marx. You can’t be both.

“While the workingmen, the true political powers of the North, allowed slavery to defile their own republic, while before the Negro, mastered and sold without his concurrence, they boasted it the highest prerogative of the white-skinned laborer to sell himself and choose his own master, they were unable to attain the true freedom of labor, or to support their European brethren in their struggle for emancipation; but this barrier to progress has been swept off by the red sea of civil war.”
