Watching all videos in the first part of this module creates an impressive, pervasive, and powerful network of policies, actions and events that impeach the personhood of people of colour. The continuing squashing of access to education, housing,and freedom creates a system in which it is easy for White people to not only feel they deserve the wealth they've gained over time,but also to set themselves as Saviors or Good Guys with the unruly POC as the Bad Guy deserving their downfall. What boggles my mind is the complexity of this system, and the long-lasting roots it has. White supremacy and racism is an old and wizened beast, constantly evolving. I was struck by the increase in incarceration, and cannot help but see it as another shade of slavery, of the boarding schools, and of the continued dehumanizing of people who are not White. These numbers have a poewrful impact intergenerationally, and set up the future to continue as it has in the past.
