These historical events, rules, and laws most definitely still impact our society today. Epigentics and the carried trauma in changed DNA across generations impacts the bodies and minds of people impacted by it, and so YES these factors still impact society today. These historical events, rules, and laws undoubtedly have caused trauma and I would even say extreme trauma. These events also have led to biases from white people who continue to try to manage society today, thus continuing the impact.
After watching these videos I just feel like the exploitation of people of color is even more exposed and I want to share these videos with others. As a white person I do feel some white guilt/shame but also anger that white people have accepted this treatment and continue to do so in today's society.
