The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 6th 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. Gus and many C.O.W.S.’s listeners raved about Wilkerson’s debut publication, but her sophomore effort is substandard. And 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, Wilkerson continues to describe her 8 pillars of caste. She continues to insist that mistreatment on the basis of skin color is used “arbitrary.” She continues to offer a pile of metaphors that further confuse the reader and detract from explaining why and how White Supremacy operates. She continues the pattern of describing Whites as damaged/co-victims of caste. Wilkerson also interspersed a re-telling of Admitted Racist Jane Elliott’s 60-year-old “exercise.” A number of listeners continue to point out that the Indian caste system and Nazi Germany fail to compare to the systemic brutality of White Supremacy.
