    Was wondering where to post that; it's a good explanation of how representation affects perception and then how that perception affects action, for example, but it's definitely about much more than just that.

    A middle aged white woman in NYC told my brother in law to go back to his own country

    Full disclosure, he called her the c word before that. Cause he's a jerk.

    I'm writing a paper on the myth of black liberation movements cause a rise in violent crimes, and was wondering if anyone here has read anything recent that is related to that? I'm mostly looking for peer reviewed/academic articles or books, but it doesn't have to be. I already have the FBI report on "Black identity extremists" as a source.

    It's well documented how racism in modern medicine and public health has specifically failed african americans. No 27 year old in 2017 should be dying from a heart attacik.

    Mom was watching Gone with the Wind oh and of course POC are the ones that are the maids and butlers.

    Had to leave the room. Really wish more people were aware of stuff like this in old "classic" films

    i may get better but we won't ever get well Prestigious

    Saw a cop stopping two dudes on the street in what looked like basically random description-based harassment (we've had a string of robberies, usually committed by "2-3 blk males in x color hoodies," although none tonight) and they obviously were just trying to go about their night. Is there anything a passerby can even do in that situation, particularly without making things worse for the stopped folks?

    Agreed. Similarly, Assyrians in the US are super Americanized. I even just learned that some call themselves Italian and run away if you speak Assyrian to them. I never, ever heard of that in the UK.
