I do think that these historical events still effect society today. I think there's a trickle down effect. If a black family during these times were trying to get a house, compared to a white family getting a house...there could be so many things that has effects. The white family might've been in a zipcode with less pollution, leading to healthier life. While a black family could develop more health issues in a higher pollution area. Then their health could effect their work, leading to lesser income, higher bills for medical problems, etc. This past year I read The Color of Law and learned that some HOA's still have in their bylaws that Black people are no allowed to own a house. Their obviously not enforced, but the fact that they're still there is crazy. Frustration & anger is the main emotion that comes from this section overall. Frustration & anger that it happened - and more that most of this is never taught in schools. The first time I learned about the Japanese prison camps was in college. Not from a class, but from an episode of Hawaii 5-0. It was a flash back episode and was covering what happened. As I watched it, I was like.."what, when did this happen??" And quickly jumped to google. Holy cow - how was this never taught?
The camps make me think though that the detention centers near the border is just a modern day repeat of this. Other than speaking up, what laws need to be drawn up to make sure these camps aren't set to repeat every x amount of years?
