In this “Teen Talk” we will discuss types of hidden racism that effects the black community. Issues we will address include:
– How America began to use abstract language to try to hide its racism especially during the Reagan presidency
– The abuse of the 13th amendment and how it led to mass incarceration and how that effects us today
– t\The education, healthcare, and housing systems and how abstract language allows these racist systems to function
The overall goal is to understand past and current issues and how they effect us. Through these open discussions, we will use what we learn to come up with some solutions and how to combat institutionalized racism.
