CHAPTER 9 OF CASTE or PARALLELS BETWEEN INDIA, AMERICA…AND NAZI GERMANY

I’m reading Caste: The Origins of our Discontents and I’m haunted.

As an Indian American (who’s studied and worked with the poorest of the poor in India); as a kid in South Jersey who was pulled into and confronted Nazi culture directly and have continued to study it since; and as…an American acutely aware that were still inside or one lifetime removed from Black people having civil rights …

Chapter 9 of this book shook me.

#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for having read it.

I’m 21% into this book and feel so many synapses formed and connected in the most horrific and disappointing of ways.

Isabel Wilkerson: wow.
