After watching the video about understanding system racism it is sad to see how communities of color continue to be oppressed. And everything and everyone working against them. Growing up I was always taught that if you worked hard enough you could get a good education, go onto college and get a good job, allowing anyone can succeed.
I mean it's America right? Wrong.
Now I am seeing that was a very naive, white privileged, train of thought. How is someone supposed to succeed with just hard work? There are many other working parts I was unaware of to keep the status quo.
