This Module was very interesting and I ended up taking detailed notes so as to revisit these ideas over and over. I learned a great deal. I was most interested in the idea of Law and Order and Policing because of recent current events. The idea that policing was created for the purpose of oppression and executing the idea of assumed criminality of people of color. I am so shocked when violent acts often go unpunished but I realize that it's because these acts were done in the name of Law and Order and that justice is not the goal of Law and Order. It's about skin color. Unfortunately, if people in power are allowed to engage in this violence and it goes unpunished, the public will begin to take similar action. Hence the uptick in which supremecist propaganda and racist rallies.
A big takeaway for me was seeing ways I can help: support reforming criminal justice system, support ending predatory lending, and protecting voting rights.
