The Cost of Privilege is one of those rare books that manages to blend
first-rate analysis around racism and white supremacy, with first-rate class
analysis as well. The result is that the reader gains invaluable insights
into the ways in which capitalism and white supremacy have interacted to
produce and reproduce injustice, and the ways in which the working class has
remain divided by the promise of white privilege to some of its members.
This is an important and insightful volume.
--Tim Wise, author, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son

Author Chip Smith, a seasoned activist, presents historical analysis,
first-hand stories, and critical examinations of political struggles that
challenged white supremacy.
