Forgeries of History

The Poor White Study

(p.24) Chapter 1 Forgeries of History
Waste of a White Skin

University of California Press

“Forgeries of History: The Poor White Study” dispenses with the key frames put forward within the Poor White Study in order to situate the failure of domestic policy in South Africa to shore up white wages and white quality of life for poor whites. If domestic South African civic associations and state pressure could not secure the global color line, in what ways might other forces—especially race-relations technicians like E. G. Malherbe—catalyze a transformation in the conditions of the South African racial labor hierarchy?

Keywords:   racial degeneration, Afrikaner Nationalism, data variability, dependency of poor whites on black urbanites, housing, employment, wages, American corporate expansionism, civilized labor, Ernest Malherbe, black vs. white proletarianization, race-relations technicians, white nationalism
