I was struck by the planning and efforts that go into, and have gone into, intentionally racist acts, policies and systems. The videos in this module showed the thought and care taken in planning the most effective strategies to destroy cultures and control peoples. I knew of these horrific acts and outcomes, and the tiny part of me that somehow still believed that they were a product of ignorance or negligence is gone. The intentionality is clear. The perpetrators knew they were doing harm and had dehumanized the people they were harming. Strategies and systems were altered and adjusted so that the violence could continue. Violence, economic or cultural, was the goal.
