MARSE: How Racism is Alive in (Many of) Our White Bodies - TODAY!
MARSE: A Psychological Portrait Of The Southern Slavemaster And His Legacy Of White Supremacy - By: H.D. Kirkpatrick (Prometheus Books, 2022) This is an amazing book! It brings in a whole new layer (or way of explaining it) into understanding racism - especially for white people - and even more so for white men. It is scary reading! It is a “good” kind of scary! It helps me open up my heart - more and more to ponder the intersections of the power of elites. It shows how they play off the “little people” - against each other. It shows how, by our essential relative silence, we (,who think we are “better” than those “other “ white people,) acquiesce to their power. The book until its concluding chapter focuses historically on the Racist and horrifically pathological, criminal nature of slavery. It shows how relatively few major slaveowners deeply impacted the U.S. and the other major world powers. It paints a picture of “normalcy” that is highly disturbing
