Abstract

William Darity, M’Balou Camara, and Nancy MacLean (2022) claim that W.H. Hutt was a white supremacist. We show that they reach this conclusion via strained interpretations and citation errors, and we describe documentary evidence that casts doubt on their thesis.

Keywords: James M. Buchanan, W.H. Hutt, Apartheid, White Supremacy
