Alfred W. McCoy visits The Context of White Supremacy. The Harrington Chair in History at the University of Wisconsin, Professor McCoy is an award winning historian and writer. He authored Policing America's Empire and The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade. Published in 1972, the latter documents CIA involvement in the global drug trade. The CIA reportedly tried to suppress publication of the text. We'll discuss his new book, In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of US Global Power. McCoy describes 20th century global politics and the rise of US empire. He now predicts the rise of China and the erosion of United States preeminence. McCoy doesn't specify which people will lose power in this decline, nor does his evaluation address the reported drop in White fertility rates and their percentage of the North American population. We'll ask McCoy if the alarming rise in White opioid addiction is related to the demise of US might. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#
