Education, the pipeline to incarceration, red-lining...these are all still happening today in the same, or similar ways. My friend is a realtor. People often don't realize she is a black woman, which allows her the opportunity to get asked questions that are just terrible. "Is there a significant black population here", "I hear that this is a very black neighborhood, is that true?", "I love this house, but do you think the value is going down?" (as they watch a POC walk their dog or something like that).
In my children's schools our teachers do not adequately represent the student demographic. This doesn't allow for ample role models for all children to look up to and aspire to be. Our PTA's in my town do not work equally. Schools in more affluent sections have wildly successful fundraisers while schools in the more socio-economically depressed areas struggle to have the funds for assemblies and enriching activities for the students. When they get to the middle schools it is often evident who came from which locations and you can see how they progress, or don't . The honors and AP classes do not have the representation in them that reflects the town's demographics and this effects college admissions, future careers, and on and on and on.
