Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today?
How could it not? I often to come back to the fact that many of these events occurred during my parents and grandparents time, which for most people my age (30s), might still be alive. This impacts beliefs, views, opinions, and heavily contributes to racism, discrimination, and prejudice. Not to mention we see it in the news every single day (immigration, police brutality, racism, etc.). Laws and such may have been passed to move away from such treatment but they do not change the mindsets of all Americans.
What are your thoughts after viewing these videos?
Just how little I know about non-white American history. It has inspired me to want to learn more about understand more about our country and history other than what I was taught in school, which is again, one perspective not THE perspective.
