The Context of White Supremacy hosts the second 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. During last week's session, Gary explained his realization that the dog hates niggras and looks to rehabilitate the dog. He's told repeatedly that the dog is too old to be re-educated, his hatred of niggras has become an ingrained part of his being. While making a pitiful attempt to reform the hound, Gary comments on the turmoil of the 1960's and the phenomenon of black Americans "gaming Whitey." He laments that his White Wife, Jean Seberg, is being duped by a number of slick talking black people activists. Gary also pouts about his Racist canine being labeled a White Dog. He immediately grasps the implications of what it means to be White and his connection to the ravenous pooch. #WhiteMansBestFriend INVEST in The COWS – Cash App:$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE 564943#
