Their premise is garbage. It’s important to acknowledge the shameful and evil role slavery has played in the nation’s history, but the 1619 Project misstates that role. The US is hardly the only nation that has practiced slavery and 99% of the wealth from slavery was destroyed in the Civil War. The Caribbean and Latin America also participated in the slave trade but don’t have the same wealth as the US. Canada didn’t participate in slavery and is on par with the US. Slavery has weak explanatory power for all this the US. I’m not dismissing the importance of understanding how evil slavery was - but the NYT makes the opposite error

VP: You love to twist words, don’t you. Slavery is not anti-capitalism, it is crony capitalism. It is a perverted form of capitalism. The word anti as defined by oxford dictionary means ‘opposed to’. Slave owners were not opposed to capitalism, they in fact abused the basic tenets of capitalism - property rights and individual freedom- to justify slavery. Btw principally anti capitalistic is communism - are you suggesting model of slavery was a communist invention. The question you need to ask is not why South is poorer than the North, but why does it has more economic inequality. Crony capitalism is about benefitting a few at the cost of many. Which leads to higher income inequality - which is what you see in the south. This is exactly the reason why Russia is both poorer and has more inequality than the US North was rich coz it was industrious in nature. Any new idea require capital, which the rich folks in the North were willing to invest - coz unlike south they did not have a huge captive population of slaves whose free labor they could rely on.

Thanks for posting, I will definitely see if I can pick one up.

They are giving out copies at 10AM today at the NYT building. Side note - follow @nhannahjones on twitter. She’s the brains behind 1619. Always good discourse.

There is a podcast. It’s great.
