"Between the end of Reconstruction in 1877 and the end of World War I in 1918, African Americans experienced their nadir. The Betrayal of the Negro (originally published as The Negro in American Life and Thought: The Nadir, 1877–1901 and subsequently expanded) is the only full-scale account to document with encyclopedic research this neglected phase in American history. The author examines every aspect of our country's post-Reconstruction retreat from equality: the economic factors, the Supreme Court decisions, Booker T. Washington and his "Era of Compromise," and, in a unique and disturbing survey, the racist caricatures that dominated the most liberal newspapers and magazines of the day. Dispassionate and insightful, Logan unfolds a narrative of national betrayal as harrowing as it is heartbreaking."

Give me 3 or 4 days and I'll tell you if it's worth a buy
I'm going to read it when i get a chance just off the description.

READ SETTLERS

settlers kind of articulates what you already sort of knew or had an idea of concerning why the white lower classes of america supposedly go against their interests and the whole "temporarily embarrassed millionaire" phenomenon. its a must read.

I'm having a hard time deciding between which stack I'll read. Both stacks should keep me occupied until the end of the year.

Piketty's one is the most recent but focuses on economics and class. It's quite long too so it depends on what you're looking for but I'll recommend that one.

Which stack were you interested in? if you're interested in the first stack, Black Marxism and MLK's Chaos or community are great reads. Hell, Huey and Frantz's books are great too (Personal bias).

Like @Liu Kang said, Capital is a very long read and it could be boring to you if you aren't interested in the subject. But it's a great read nonetheless. Dark Money is also a great read too.
