The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 11th and final study session on Isabel Wilkerson’s 2020 offering, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Wilkerson can stuff a storage area and a luggage set with the numerous (and well-earned) prizes she’s garnered – often for writing about the mistreatment of black people. The Warmth of Other Suns is beloved by President Barack Obama and Gus T. Renegade alike. However, Caste is a shameful, pathetic offering and is cemented as the 2nd worst book Gus has read. The word “caste” is in the text more than 1,000 times according to word count – this does not include the title of the text. It frequently seems like one of the primary objectives of this text is to get black people to use the word “caste” as oppose to Racism/White Supremacy. During last week’s section of the text, Wilkerson details President Obama’s 2008 rise to the White House. She includes the birther movement and numerous insults Obama faced during his presidency. However, Wilkerson greatly minimizes the historic number of death threats Obama and his family faced during his presidency. Branding it an undercurrent of resentment, Wilkerson describes Trump’s 2016 triumph as the response to White resentments and feelings of loss. Seemingly by obligation, Wilkerson returns to the Heather Heyer’s 2017 killing. This is the 3rd time Heyer is referenced in the text – while numerous black male victims of White violence were left unnamed.
