 [Online] Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson. Beyond race, class, and other factors, there is a powerful caste system that influences peopleís lives and behavior and the nationís fate. Linking the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson explores eight pillars that underlie caste systems across civilizations, including divine will, bloodlines, stigma, and more. Wilkerson points to ways America can move beyond the artificial and destructive separations of humans, toward hope in our common humanity.
