Leonce Gaiter’s nonfiction writing has appeared in The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Times, LA Weekly, Newsweek, and The Washington Post.
His essay “The True Story of The Harder They Fall’s Villain Is Even Weirder Than in the Movie” was recently featured at Slate. He is the author of several novels including his most recent, “In the Company of Educated Men”.
Gaiter is also the author of the historical novel, “I Dreamt I Was in Heaven - The Rampage of the Rufus Buck Gang”.
He explains how an allegiance to Whiteness and the many big and little lies of white supremacy and racism will bring the ultimate destruction of the United States. Gaiter also warns that American fascism and the attempt by the Jim Crow Republicans and Donald Trump to overthrow America’s multiracial democracy on Jan. 6 (and beyond) highlights a profound cultural and political sickness across the color line here in America.
He also reflects on how White America is fundamentally in denial and possessed by a willful naivete and gross childish thinking about its capacity for and attraction to violence, death, and destruction.
