When the murder of George Floyd was still on the minds of Americans, the book 'Caste: The Origins Of Our Discontent' by Isabel Wilkerson was published. It became a bestseller. This free interpretation of the making of that book shows how Isabel [Aujanue Ellis-Taylor] came to her not-so-remarkable conclusion that the Holocaust, the Hindustani caste system and the institutional discrimination of black people in the US are closely intertwined. Two words: Nietschze, Übermensch? The book was a bestseller, but that seems to mainly indicate the enormous lack of historical knowledge of the readers. DuVernay's film adaptation is in fact an extraordinarily long anthology from that book to which she filmed some footage. The story of the collaboration between two black and two white students during a remarkable investigation into racism in Mississippi is much more interesting than this much too long speech.
