Oppressive Exploitation and Racialized Resentment
This chapter ties the pattern in symbolic boundaries to social boundaries, that is, to Latino migrants’ perceptions of their position vis-à-vis African Americans within the social organization of labor at the factory. Latinos express racialized resentment that is rooted in their experience of oppressive exploitation and their perception that African American workers occupy a more favorable position in the workplace. Theoretically, this chapter advances an adapted version of the concept of “racial alienation.”
