Over at Salon.com there is a great article about a fascinating new book by Edward E. Baptist about the roots of American capitalism in slavery. About how exactly, in economic terms, racism and systemic racist oppression have and still do drive our markets and our values.

Super excited to read this and think I will be adding it to my Christmas list!

Would be really interested in doing a reading/discussion group around this material in January if folks are interested. Let me know in the comments!
