To answer the first forum question: Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today? What are your thoughts after viewing these videos?
Yes, as sad as it is to admit this harsh reality--it is our reality. In fact, history is clearly repeating itself and we are currently experiencing racism at its finest. My thoughts after viewing these videos...they are heavy thoughts. My heart aches for those that had to go through all of that unwilling and with no consent. However, after viewing the videos I am more knowledgeable of why our very country is the way it is and that we truly need to address the elephant in the room. And if we don't fight this now in 2020, we will NEVER see change. Like a friend mentioned to me: It really had to take a virus, quarantine, and for the world to pause on their daily lives/routines to really see that racism needs to be addressed.
