“Being upper class is more than a matter of money, though money counts. ... Upper class means a certainty of belonging, an assumption of one's importance in the world. ... the U.S. aristocracy is institutionalized in U.S. history and in the mythology that transcends it. Take away black studies, women's studies, ethnic studies, Jewish studies, labor history, Chicano studies, Native American studies: what is left is what has passed for 'history' with no qualifying adjective, the story of those whose belonging was never disputed.”
