History, propaganda, outdated rules and laws negatively impact our society today. Luckily in some cases courts have been able to use Civil Rights Era laws to help expand coverage in protection of human rights for underserved populations (ie. LGBTQIA+). But it's not enough. Immigration laws from 1965 still have caps on nationalities. "Redlining" is still an issue, especially as we see more cities (ie. Brooklyn, Milwaukee, etc.) gentrify and displace BIPOC communities. Until higher education, history is taught in the US from "the winner's" perspective (American, WASP, men) and solely taught to pass a test (AP, State Standardized Tests - No Child Left Behind Act, etc.) Even in universities, there is little to no coverage of Indigenous people. Without this information disseminating to new generations, nothing really changes. Propaganda and social media then fill in the gaps that education (or lack thereof) could not fill and continue to fuel the capitalist society built and fueled by colonialism and racist ideologies.
