I would like to think with all the history and education available to our citizens that racism would have ceased but it appears that the racism never stopped or declined. Society has adapted their ways of oppressing people of different colors. Beliefs and values are taught and this starts in the home. Education and policy changes are needed to see the necessary and desired outcomes for everyone to have the same opportunities. The portions in the module pertaining to assimilation was most interesting to me. I work in foster care and adoptions and it was astounding to me that society approved of erasing a child's birth connection. Their birth connection is a part of their identity which if they were removed from that, they will seek it later to have closure. The generational trauma made since to me too because parents pass on to their children family history and the hardships they have overcome. Many families still have to overcome challenges that should not be happening. Violence should not be used as a method to control a group of people to maintain the status quo. America's history is dark and I hope to be a part of a future society that brightens the path for ALL Americans.
