What you basically have over the past few hundred years, is a transition from religion as the axis of society - then with the plundering of the Americas and the arising of the African slave trade - you begin to see race as the axis of society... It's not surprising that in this era of the rise of capitalism, it walks hand in glove with the rise of racism as a phenomenon.

Historian Gerald Horne explores the terrains of race, religion, capital and slavery across the 16th century trans-Atlantic world - as European powers pillaged Africa and the Americas of both people and resources, their destruction created the enduring formations of life in the 21st century - White supremacy and rapacious capitalism.

Gerald is author of the book The Dawning of the Apocalypse: The Roots of Slavery, White Supremacy, Settler Colonialism, and Capitalism in the Long Sixteenth Century from Monthly Review Press.
