The division of labor is as central to capitalist dynamics as commodity fetishism, exploitation, and logics of accumulation are. I think that divisions of labor mediate commodity fetishism, ideology of race, and ideology of sex/gender/sexuality, grounding them into social practice of actually existing + historically constituted capitalism (as opposed to the essence of capitalism as explained through heuristics).

I suggest that for the ideology of race to disappear, the division of labor must become deraced, _not_ in criticism _but_ in the real world, and not just within one country but internationally. It goes without saying that the reserve army of labor must be deraced as well, for the ideology to lose its hold. The same goes for the ideology of sex/gender/sexuality.
