I'm appalled at the feeling of hopelessness that has overcome me within watching these videos. It seems like all people of color (including bipoc, asians, Native Americans, latinx, and more) individuals are all actively being repressed for being who they are, and incorporating their culture.
It feels unfair that as (white) children we're taught that America is the "Great American Melting Pot" yet there is so much backlash against other cultures existing within a white hierarchical structure that has systemically punished non-white people for existing.
I find it hard to watch videos on systemic incarceration, on the concentration camps that are STILL existing, on the assimilation project for Native Americans, and feeling that there's nothing I can do about it.
There has to come a change. There has to be MASSIVE reform of the corrupt police systems, of the gender, racial, and ethnic hierarchical systems, and of the United States Government at large. And it has to happen now.
