Racism is not limited to Tiki torches and small-town violence. There are both historical and contemporary policies and practices that continue to have disparate effects on people of color throughout their lives.
From something as small as commuting times to larger systemic barriers and implicit bias, it is structural racism and White supremacy that have created and continue to create inequities in health, housing, education and beyond. For many people of color, these barriers appear in their day-to-day lives. The false narrative that an individual’s personal choices or culture produces these disparities only helps those in power neglect the necessary changes that would foster a more equitable society. These infographics show some of the problems and benefits of correcting the inequities.
