Yes, I am able to see these connections and its disturbing. First, you have the longer term impacts of redlining, even though its no longer practiced, which automatically segregates people based on their skin color; compound that with a lack of access to good federal housing loans, and it forces people into more of a poverty-ridden community. With that comes lesser-well-funded schools, that contributes to poorer educational opportunities and far fewer rates of success in those communities. The likelihood of dropping out of school due to those reasons is in direct correlation with higher incarceration rates in black and brown skinned Americans, with an even higher rate among men. Furthermore, families are not able to build wealth as easily which keeps them and their descendants in lower income/higher poverty areas. Its like a vicious cycle with every step along the way propelling one into failure. Its disgusting and I am appalled. Black and Brown skinned Americans who put forth the same effort (LIKELY EVEN MORE) have far fewer chances and opportunities for success with the odds stacked against them so badly, all across the board. Its truly an abomination and I do hope this can be addressed for good in the not too distant future.
