The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Professor Paul Ortiz. The Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and associate professor of history at the University of Florida, Professor Ortiz teaches undergraduate courses and supervises graduate fields in African American history, Latina/o & Latinx history, comparative ethnic studies, U.S. South, labor, social movement theory, oral history, digital humanities, ethnography and other topics. His 2006 publication, Emancipation Betrayed: The Hidden History of Black Organizing and White Violence in Florida from Reconstruction to the Bloody Election of 1920, was awarded the Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Book Prize. Gus discovered Professor Ortiz’s work while reading Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Wilkerson’s references the history of White Terrorism against black people who attempted to vote. Specifically, Wilkerson’s cites Ortiz’s research on the 1920 Ocoee, Florida massacre – where dozens of black people were murdered for attempting to vote. We’ll place this in context of our current presidential election. We’ll get Professor Ortiz’s thoughts on the Caste as well as the notion that black males are to blame for unfavorable election results. Pay particular attention to Professor Ortiz’s response to his racial classification. Sometimes White Supremacists cause confusion about their White identity.
