One line that stood out to me from the website was “If you want to understand the brutality of American Capitalism, you have to start the plantation.” by Matthew Desmond. This is a very powerful statement, slavery was a big part of Capitalism and has everything to do with why we are the way we are now. It is important to understand that it would be very difficult to imagine the terrible things that were happening during slavery, you just had to be there to really comprehend the brutality. People can bring anything to life no matter how terrible it is if the majority follows, which is sad to hear.
