After working through module one, I am thinking about this quote I saw recently that said "the system is not broken. It actually works exactly as intended." The videos and the information presented support that claim. We like to pretend the system is broken because it puts people of color in harm's way and at a disadvantage, but the truth is, that's exactly how it was created. We can see very clearly throughout history how laws and policies were put into place to create fewer opportunities and simply make life harder for POC. They have been under attack by systemic racism from the day they stepped off the boat in this country, and for natives and indigenous populations, since the day colonizers stepped off the boat.
