The Context of White Supremacy hosts the debut study session on Romain Gary's White Dog. A White man born in eastern Europe, Gary piloted jets in World War II and authored a number of top selling french novels before committing suicide in 1980. We'll discuss his 1970 international bestseller White Dog - which is allegedly an autobiography. The book centers on a white German shepherd Gary finds while visiting the United States. The vagrant canine is beloved by the entire family and is treated as part of the klan. But Gary quickly notices the hound becomes hostile and immediately attacks when black people appear. White Dog was converted to a movie in 1982, but the NAACP and others boycotted the project. We'll examine what this book reveals about White people and their connection to the "Man's best friend." #WhiteMansBestFriend INVEST in The COWS – Cash App:$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE 564943#
