I‘m that person who‘s so late on this, but I just watched Hamilton for the first time around the 4th. I liked it but all of the sudden last week I was like “I‘m gonna listen to the soundtrack” and it‘s been on legit repeat since 😂 Honestly the songs/story are so compelling. Hard not to enjoy even though hip hop isn‘t my typical genre

The author makes the case that the Doctrine of Discovery fueled America‘s historically terrible treatment of Indigenous people and Black people. I like how the author divided the book into 3 parts of the country, with 3 similar patterns of land grabbing and lynching, and how the communities are reckoning with their history to create a “path forward” today.

Read for my book club and it‘s also my #bookspin book!

I was thankful when Pope Francis, on March 30, 2023, officially repudiated the “Doctrine of Discovery.“ 🥲💝.

It was truly an important step forward.

But at the same time, we‘re already in two wars- Iraq and Afghanistan, so adding Libya on top of that would cost even more troops, time and money that could be devoted elsewhere. #war #obama #thecallofhistory #peterbaker #barackobama #robertgates #muammarelqaddafi #qaddafi #arabspring #libya #internationalpolitics #politicalscience #worldhistory #history

At the end of the day, I feel as if Barack Obama making fun of Trump and the Republican Party backfired in the end. I believe it had an indirect effect on what will be the 2016 election. I think it is right up there with Hillary Clinton calling Trump supporters deplorable. To me, you can only make fun of people for so long before they push back and decide we‘re not going to take this and vote that party out of office. #obama #peterbaker

Part 2: Now that we know how it ended and where we are today, did Barack Obama‘s plan to make Donald Trump and the Republican Party look like a joke work out in his and the Democratic Party‘s favor? Or did it backfire? #obama #thecallofhistory #barackobama #donaldtrump #whitehousecorrespondentsdinner #ushistory #history #peterbaker #uspolitics #politicalscience #republicanparty #democraticparty

Part 1: It‘s time for a quote and a question: Barack Obama made fun of Donald Trump at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner. His goal was to make Trump a symbol of the Republican Party and therefore making the Republican Party look like a joke… #barackobama #obama #thecallofhistory #peterbaker #donaldtrump #whitehousecorrespondentsdinner #republicanparty #jokes #democraticparty #ushistory #history #politicalscience #uspolitics

The Deadline: Essays | Jill Lepore

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Collection of Lepore‘s New Yorker essays. Unsurprisingly, they were all really well written. I‘m amazed at her mastery of so many different topics related to law, politics, and history. My favorites were the couple of more personal essays at the beginning of. The only downside is that since the topics covered are so broad, they can wander into territory the reader (listener) may not have picked (e.g., waterboarding). Overall great.
