Details "Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment" Guns loom large in nearly every chapter of American history, and in her eye-opening study of the Second Amendment, Dunbar-Ortiz exposes the racist roots of America’s gun culture. Starting with the first European settlers and moving through slavery, Jim Crow, and today’s aggressive policing, Dunbar-Ortiz shows that the main victims of “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms” have been people of color. Author of An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States and the 1977 indigenous studies classic, The Great Sioux Nation, Dunbar-Ortiz raises important questions about the connection between the country’s staunch resistance to gun control and our seemingly intractable racial issues.
