Today’s Connecting the Dots #CTD- Race, Power, Privilege

Systemic racism is the basis of the heightened incidences of police brutality in our society today as well as the basis of generational poverty. In many instances, the recent Baltimore riots have been framed as a group of black delinquents or thugs causing havoc. The real issue is way deeper than the death of Freddie Gray or Michael Brown. The death of these men, along with many others, are the result of the profound history of systemic racism that exists in our society. As much as we like to believe that we live in a post-racism world, we are far from it.
