Anti-blackness in Institutional Outcomes

Regardless of the celebrity, so called wealth visibility and role models we think we see in entertainment or sports - outcomes for black and brown people in this country are worsening. As I share during my workshops.....There were always a sliver (though very small) of the population that was allowed to be "free", and not subjected to enslavement - or the conditions of Jim Crow (as much as others were). We need to understand that our collective oppression as black people is due to white racism which functions as a cultural trait/condition. This was not solved, nor eliminated with the Civil Rights Act of 1965 or any other pieces of legislation. Our outcomes as a collective group are worsening

The Traumatic Effects of Learning and Teaching About Racism as White Supremacy and Antiblackness

It is one thing to understand that white people are advantaged and privileged and experience/observe these privileges happening at my expense personally in some cases.
