This paper examines the soundness of critical assessments of Marxism which present, as an unassailable conclusion, the view that Marx and Marxism are of little use for the study of the connections between class, gender and race. Arguing that, contrary to the prevailing view, Marx and Marxism are indeed necessary for elucidating the relationship between class and identities, the author examines the limitations of the Race, Gender & Class perspective and suggests that the nameless power underlying all "raced, gendered, and classed" interactions is none other than class power and that, consequently, the RGC perspective needs Marxism to go beyond semantics (e.g., the endless proliferation of terms to name the connections between class, gender and race) and fulfill its avowed theoretical and emancipatory objectives.
