Q: "Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today? What are your thoughts after viewing these videos?" A number of these events I Was aware of: the interment of American citizens of Japanese descent; Flint, MI (which still doesn't have drinkable water); racism in housing and to a degree in immigration; some of the mistreatment of Native Americans; some of the medical racism. I was unaware that the US gave Germany the idea for the use of Zyklon-B, and in that lesson about the El Paso border, didn't know about the bath riots (or how the injustices continued well beyond them). Story after story, report after report, paints a picture of how the majority whites punished nonwhites for having the audacity to exist. Of course this history still impacts us today--some of these videos are recent, after all. From Flint, MI to the concentration camps currently established along the southern border, to cities where the remnants of segregationist history and red-lining still has borders drawn around populations, keeping people "in their place." Through banking discrimination to housing discrimination (even with laws in place to prevent it, those with a will find a way), the whites in power strive to maintain their position of power. Not included here, there is an interesting study on a streaming service about how the 13th amendment abolishing slavery left a loophole in place that gave white people a continued method to enslave black people--through policing and incarceration. With the social contract void almost immediately upon establishment, even with abolition, powerful whites sought to re-enslave blacks and used every "legal" trick in the book to do so. And now, worst of all, we have leading the country a cabal of white supremacists, without any checks or balances, intent on oppression of all but the rich, white, man. It's time to learn everything we can to atone for the wrongdoings of our country's past, and regain control to bring fairness and equality to our leadership.
