Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today? What are your thoughts after viewing these videos?
I absolutely think that these historical events and antiquated views on race and ethnicity are still alive and well in current systems and processes. The videos gave me a sense of "disappointed, but not surprised" as in it is embarrassing and disappointing that we cannot move forward as a nation from these antiquated practices of white supremacy, but I am not surprised at the complacency of those who benefit from the systems in place trying not to rock the boat because it "doesn't affect them"...but it does! The proof is in the pudding, and these videos prove that racism is still engrained in the practices that we use in modern day.
