I was struck by the how many different ways racism has impacted the US across the our history. We certainly have an idyllic view that we are a "post-racial" society, post 2008 election. However, these clips of various social justice issues demonstrate how disproportionate the impacts are. We know when our basic needs are in jeopardy, we cannot attend to higher needs on the hierarchy. I appreciated the diverse examples of racism in the US to consider how else I might take action.
