The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 6th study session on Romain Gary's White Dog. A White man born in eastern Europe, Gary piloted jets in World War II and authored a number of top selling french novels before committing suicide in 1980. We'll discuss his 1970 global bestseller, White Dog - which is reportedly based on actual events. The book centers on a white German shepherd Gary finds while visiting the United States. The vagrant canine is beloved by Gary's entire family and treated as part of the clan. But Gary quickly notices the hound becomes hostile and immediately attacks when black people appear. During last week's session, Gary continues to castigate Stokely Carmichael. This critique is literally hours and days following the assassination of Dr. King. Gary recounts attending a Hollywood fundraiser where those in attendance included: the late Coretta Scott King, Rev. Ralph Abernathy, Jesse Jackson Sr., Harry Belafonte and other prominent members of the so-called Civil Rights Movement as well as entertainment titans like Marlon Brando. Gary uses this moment to mock the proposed Poor People's Campaign - which was Dr. King's final project. He later recounts his time spent with former President John F. Kennedy and his brother and former Attorney General Robert Kennedy. Gary confesses to predicting the latter's assassination - at a time when assassinations were routine. #TheMansBestFriend INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE 564943#
