Summary

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 10th study session on Edward Baptist's 2014 text, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery And The Making Of American Capitalism. Baptist, a possible Race Soldier, crafted this work to concentrate the enslavement and slaughter of black bodies as fundamental to the foundation and prosperity of the United States. He verifies that the torture and forced labor of black people was not an inefficient industrial system, nor would it have ended naturally on its own. The book chapters are named after body parts to accentuate how the White slave system embodied complete war on black bodies. Last week's session described how lying, corrupt, enslavers absconded to Texas when their farms went bust. Baptist momentarily includes how White Women "dramatically" increased their public support of slavery during the 1840's - contrary to the commonly praised Harriet Beecher Stowe. We also pondered on one of the more provocative sentences in the book: "Historians have repeatedly confused 'manhood' and 'resistance' when they have written about slavery." Perhaps Mr. Baptist has a difficult time conceptualizing black "manhood" in the form of Nat Turner or the negro who killed a White overseer in Mississippi. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p
