Most of the history content that was displayed here, I know about to some degree. Back in my time african american and other POC histories were not taught to us. I think that a lot of it was omitted on purpose, to keep BIPOC people from knowing the real truths and a way for whites to keep white supremacy alive, even to this day.
I did not know that Native Americans suffered slavery and I did not know the depths of the boarding school and the reason behind adoptions. I would like to explore more about that. I did not know that there had not been any immigration laws in the beginning and that there have been an history at the Mexican Border that led to dehumanization of woman and also Mexican men. Everytime I see a picture of the people in cages at the border it makes me want to cry, because the US is still treating BIPOC people like animals. A direct form of dehumanization at its best in 2020.
These videos did open my eye to the way that white supremacy, bias and propaganda plays a role in our everyday lives right now. Even though I have learned this before the content in these videos really made me remember what I have learned. Police brutality also has BIPOC working in there organizations and it hurt to see that some of those police don't see the issue with America VS The Police. We need the Police to organize for justice, equality and inclusion within there organization and stop being compliant to the issue.
This is definitely a learning experience and I am eager to know and learn more. This is awesome content.
