    Very informative. Very interesting.

    Even though both Chris Smith and Juliet Ucelli say they are Socialist and I'm still not sure what all of that means, I sure do think that Chris Smith was dead on it. He was so good.

    I like how he said that White Supremacy was socially constructed and he stressed that it goes back to the colonial days and he especially talked about the Reconstruction period. He says that the frame of mind of whites was sort of like; 'if it happened to the whites then it's not racism'--when he was talking about the Bacon Rebellion, the white workers and the later time after civil rights with the media, and color blind propaganda that in his words, 'took the color issue off of the table'.

    He stressed the Reconstruction era damage when they added the Black Codes of which all they did was change the name from Slavery to a Black Code...and how pres. Johnson moved to re-instate the southern plantation owners.

    What really hits home is how white people distance themselves from issues by saying things like 'it belongs to somebody else'. i see this today when they say 'we have a Black president so, racism is over.

    But when Chris Smith said that this happened after the civil rights time in the 1970s with the Democrats who gained speed and all they did was cause the Black struggle to be on a more limited basis--I heard that!!!

    Even the elite's knew that in order to stay in power
    they had to give a dog a bone. Wise's erudition takes
    it a step further:

    yes. He is amazing. Tim Wise is very wise.

    i like how he said the white people in New Orleans cannot see their commonality of interest and that they have more in common with the Blacks suffering than the elite white. I like how he talked about the early days when the elite made a decision to get rid of the indentured servitude and cut the lower classed white a deal and made them so-called honorary members and this is what brought about Black slavery and stopped white rebellion.

    I also listened to his blog about Obama. Tim Wise is hilarious. He really brought out a lot of truths.
