With Abby Martin

Empire Files on Nov 12, 2018

Since October 2017, America experienced three of the deadliest mass shootings in modern history. This epidemic coincides with a frightening resurgence of white nationalism. Sometimes the two trends overlap.

But why here? Both phenomena can be explained by a common historical thread—to unravel it Abby Martin sits down with indigenous scholar Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz to discuss her latest book Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment.

  2. Fantastic interview; so illuminating! it really unpacks those crucial aspects of American history, that are so often ignored and elided; buried or denied in obscure ‘respectable’ discourses brimming with euphemistic jargon and sophist apologetics ~ not to mention the sham histrionics of outright, ostentatious disinformation. Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz has immense courage; a truly principled examplar of historical integrity.
