Recently, researchers have made a number of tremendous advancements in AI capabilities. However, I will show that the fixed financial cost of making such advancements is high, and further, so are the recurring energy costs. As a result we see "AI haves and have nots"with wildly differing amounts of power between these two groups. This means our research community needs to carefully consider the role XAI has in mediating communication between stakeholders in the face of such an important power dynamic. This paper aims to engage that process, examining the current state of affairs through a variety of lenses, and then identifying some promising ideas for the future.
