These historical events set reveal the system that has been put in motion and continues to bulldoze anyone who gets in the way of the white agenda. Not only that, but the history sets up a precedent for other generations, when these stories and events are lost because they are not taught or remembered by the dominant white group, then the cycle of abuse perpetuates and continues to benefit some while literally killing others. What strikes me the most is the similarity of horrific events that happen(ed) inside the US to what we have condemned other countries for condoning and not addressing. Also, the language that was used to discriminate against whole people groups then (reports and papers) to now (news channels and "experts") is so stark when compared side by side and people don't have any idea where those thoughts originated or why they think this way--when there is a historical account that traces back to inhumane, violent, racist use of those same phrases/ideas. But white people are protected from the discomfort of these historical accounts because white people have written the history books and tell the stories they want to tell to uphold the power and privilege that they enjoy and that they founded this country on.
