Considering the events taking place around the country right now, I am using this time and space today to bring my readers’ attention to an article by Ibram X. Kendi, “The American Nightmare.” Kendi is the author of How to Be an Antiracist and Stamped from the Beginning.
Here is a short excerpt from the article, published in the Atlantic:
“Americans should be asking: Why are so many unarmed black people being killed by police while armed white people are simply arrested? Why are officials addressing violent crime in poorer neighborhoods by adding more police instead of more jobs? Why are black (and Latino) people during this pandemic less likely to be working from home; less likely to be insured; more likely to live in trauma-care deserts, lacking access to advanced emergency care; and more likely to live in polluted neighborhoods? ”
