Lynching is a horrible phenomenon that even the racists in Southern Africa found quite befuddling, that is to say the execution of black men and women with no due process of law. […] This sort of horrible excess has been virtually unique to the United States of America, which makes it possible to suggest, if there is an Olympics of racism and an Olympics of horrors, the United States could well be awarded the gold medal.

The Best of 2023 concludes with listener-favorite historian Gerald Horne, on his new book Revolting Capital: Racism & Radicalism in Washington, D.C., 1900-2000 (International Publishers).
