These historical events, rules, and laws of course still impact our society today! Individuals who are not white are facing the aftermath of our countries actions. I am disgusted with how we have treated people in our past, and we used bogus science to make ourselves feel "right".
I was aware of some these events, but not to extent I should have. I am of white middle class, and come from a family who is upper middle class. My education certainly hide these facts from me and it shows that today. I'm so thankful I am taking this training and becoming more awakened to the injustices present in our daily lives.
