Learning about the history of racism and discrimination in this country is so important, especially for white people including myself. Many of us are unaware of the horrific events of the past, because it did not affect our communities directly. We can therefore continue living in these ignorant bubbles, thinking we are so liberal and not racist. The videos I just watched were not entirely news to me, but I still found them shocking and unsettling. I also learned about events I did not know of before. I again realized how important it is to learn this. Knowing it and understanding its impact on communities of color to this day make us realize the importance of becoming anti-racist and fighting against the structures that maintain racism in this country and the world.
