The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 8th 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 this volume gets worse by the chapter. And a listener alerted Gus that Ms. Wilkerson was married to a White Man, Brett Hamilton. In fact, Wilkerson mentions Hamilton in her Acknowledgements. She writes: “I am grateful beyond language for the love and devotion of Brett Hamilton, the kindest and most giving husband I could have wished for, a gift from the universe. Many of the observations in this book first found a voice in our deeply fulfilling conversations and in our life together. While it breaks my heart that neither he nor my parents lived to see this culmination of what we, each in our own ways, sought to transcend, I feel his cosmic embrace as I send this out to the world, and I know that all three of them are with me now and always.” #2ndWorstBookEver Additionally, last week Wilkerson described the 2016 triumph of Donald J. Trump as the “resurgence” of caste/Racism. #ByeFelicia
