Very thought provoking. After having read the History of White People by Nell Irvin Painter, I had a limited understanding of eugenics, the native american boarding schools and the transformation of the word race. I have been taught about the Japanese Internment Camps. But, this was the extent to which i was exposed to the history of racism and just how much it has been swept under the rug. In the light of recent events, it just makes me think that if we don't "understand our history we are doomed to repeat it." I was completely unaware of the horrible medical acts that have taken place, the gasoline baths at the border town in El Paso and never even considered environmental racism. Its amazing how i have been taught some of this history under the context of "this was the necessary evil of the time" with no mention of any accountability or progress to make sure this doesn't happen again. But as we see from recent events, it is still taking place just on a different stage. So much to take in.
