Former UCSB professor Gerald Horne, the award-winning author of more than thirty books, discusses his book "The Counter-Revolution of 1776" which argues that for the country's forefathers, "freedom" meant the right to keep others enslaved and that the consequences of this definition continue into the present in the form of a racialized conservatism and a persistent racism targeting the descendants of the enslaved.
