This was a great introduction to explain racism in America. I had no idea that "race" was created to justify slavery and solidified by the Enlightenment. I literally thought it was created by scientists long ago who just didn't understand how DNA and evolution works. After watching the video on Chinese Exclusion, I now realize that in 1924 the Federal Immigration Law was created beginning the concept of "illegal" immigrants and aliens. Though I understood a little bit about environmental racism, I didn't understand the full impact of it until watching the video, What is Environmental Racism? I had no idea that the EPA has a department called the Office of Civil Rights and that in its 22 year history, there has been NO cases of discrimination. WHAT?!?!
