We are still reinforcing this today with our increased emphasis on culturally biased testing, defunding of public education, eurocentric curriculums, not treating the profession with the respect it deserves and many other small things that keep reinforcing inequality. There are steps that can be taken to successfully reform education and remove inequality, but this starts with learning from and understanding our history and how race means everything in
In nowadays, hetero-patriarchy and anti-Black racism within our society is still existing, accepted and even expected. It marginalizes us and limits our ability to transform and generate social change. It is important that we work together to expand and sustain the legacy of Black contributions to the struggle for human rights. When we improve the lives of the Black community, this is a great opportunity to connect struggles across race, class, gender, nationality, sexuality and disability.
African-American youth can clearly identify that the color of their skin differs from that of their European American peers. Therefore, if the only lesson African-American children and adolescents hear refers to European accomplishments, and the accomplishments of people of color are more or less non-existent, they will subliminally attribute success to the individual that looks like the people they are learning

Tatum uses the conflict theory to look at racism, economic and social inequalities. The power structure of the white dominant society in the United States, does not often recognize white privilege, while others do not believe this is a privilege at all. They believe that the power structure in the United States is one that if you work hard, everyone will have the same opportunity for success. This is an example of how white privilege helps racism to continue to exist. The inability to recognize white privilege helps to creates perception and ideals that racism in our society is a thing of the past.
As an example, we could take the racially grounded belief in the inferior intellect of African-Americans to justify not hiring them for more professionally demanding positions. Anderson finds that segregation is the cornerstone of inequality between different groups. Simply put, it is a mechanism through which one group bars another from accessing both the first group’s monopoly of a good and how it is distributed—take the example of the type of roles that African-Americans were historically able fill in the armed forces, where they were often relegated to non-frontline roles. They were therefore unable to choose where they served, and could not accrue both the rewards and social status that went with frontline duty.
Introduction Thomas Sowell once said, “racism does not have a good track record. It has been tried out for a long time and you would think by now we would want to put an end to it instead of putting it under new management.” (Romano, 2013).

I do not have any education on the topic, as such I think it would be interesting to learn, because I know that there is some information out there on the topic. As such if I do not have any education on the fact, I am unable to educate others. I see it as a vicious cycle of people not being educated on the fact, and then being racist because they do not know all the facts. If things go smoothly, I hope to have answered one major question in mind.
