The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 9th study session on Edward Baptist's 2014 publication, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery And The Making Of American Capitalism. Baptist, a possible Race Soldier, shaped this book to concentrate the enslavement and desecration of black bodies as central to the foundation and triumph of the United States. He provides confirmation 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 accent how the White slave system represented total war on black bodies. Last week's installment described in blistering detail the routine rape of enslaved black people. Baptist suggested that black females utilized their sexuality to negotiate a mildly better circumstances for themselves; this could be an act of Racism by the author. Baptist detailed Andrew Jackson's assault on the 19th century "banksters" and how his efforts were to produce a more equitable playing field for all White men. Chapter eight (Blood) provides comprehensive detail on how the enslaved black population was at the root of the United States banking and credit system. More credit meant more slaves. More slaves meant more money. #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
