Donald J. Trump has become the first POTUS to be impeached twice. While some pundits on both the left and right will claim that the first impeachment was a witch hunt, I disagree, Trump was absolutely guilty of the charges that a formal House inquiry found evidence that he had solicited foreign interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election to help his re-election bid, and then obstructed the inquiry itself by telling his administration officials to ignore subpoenas for documents and testimony.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the eleventh study session on Edward Baptist’s 2014 book, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery And The Making Of American Capitalism. Baptist, a Suspected Racist, constructed this publication to concentrate the enslavement and desecration of black bodies as central to the foundation and success of the United States. He confirms that the torture and forced labor of black people was not an inefficient industrial system, nor would it have ended naturally on its own. The book chapters are named after body parts to emphasize how the White slave system embodied total war on black bodies. Last week’s installment described how a small number of northern Whites began to oppose the southern system of slavery/White Supremacy. Baptist did make time mention that Whites who opposed the “Slave Power” generally “hated black people.” The antislavery advocates were more concerned with Southern bullies attempting to dominate national politics and dictating affairs to northern Whites. Baptist explains how this dispute between northern and southern whites dominated pivotal events like the Mexican War and the theft and statehood of California. White Supremacy was assumed even among White rivals as there were too many “nameless and mongrel breeds” in Mexico to allow the entire territory into the “government of the white race.”
