The C.O.W.S. Sundown Towns: The Hidden Dimension of American White Supremacy Part 6

The Context of White Supremacy hosts our sixth study session on James Loewen’s classic, Sundown Towns: A Hidden Dimension of American Racism. Loewen, a Suspected Racist, has written numerous bestselling and critically acclaimed history books that use the word “Racism.” In addition to Sundown Towns, Loewen’s Lies My Teachers Told Me, also examines the ways Whites deliberately obscure their record of terrorism. Mr. Loewen might be aware that we’re reading his book with suspicion. Last week’s installment emphasized the methodical racist planning that went into the development of planned communities. One of the more important point in the book: “Of 350,000 new homes built in northern California between 1946 and 1960 with FHA [Federal Housing Administration] support, fewer than 100 went to blacks. That same pattern holds for the whole state, and for the nation as well.” Loewen again evidenced Whites’s deliberate dedication to terrorizing black people: “Shanna Smith, head of the National Fair Housing Alliance, summed up the problem: ‘The government is not serious about fair housing enforcement. If they were, they would fund it.'”
