After watching all these videos on the history of racism, I am upset and horrified at what the United States has been able to accomplish with oppressing people of color. I, myself, am a Latina and 4th generation American and never realized the horrifying experience of racism my ancestors have faced. I always knew that Black Americans have experienced racism but I never realized that politicians and white people of power have been able to continue the form of racism against black people and other people of color for so long. It also pains me to see the extent of racism and near genocide that Native Americans have faced. I hope that more people can educate themselves about the effects of racism in the United States so that change can be made and racism can no longer reside in our American culture.
