The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 3rd study session on Isabel Wilkerson’s 2020 offering, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Wilkerson received a 2015 National Humanities Award from former President Barack Obama and garnered widespread acclaim for her 2010 publication, The Warmth of Other Suns. Caste examines different regions of the world where groups of individuals are mistreated because they are not White. Wilkerson explores Nazi Germany, India and the United States. Even though Gus lodged her first book in his top 10, he is not excited about this book. Unfortunately, a listener alerted Gus that Ms. Wilkerson was married to a White Man, Brett Hamilton. In fact, her #TragicArragment apparently becomes a part of the text we’re reading. During last week’s session, the metaphors continued. Wilkerson insists that mistreatment based on skin color is “arbitrary.” She cites a number of C.O.W.S.’s guests in the references (Ariela Gross, Nell Irvin Painter, Matthew Frye Jacobson, Noel Ignatiev). Wilkerson spends a a sizable amount of time describing how Whites detest the use of term “Racism” and how this concept is not the same as “caste.” However, a number of readers were still confused as to how she differentiates the two.
