I need an explanation for this History question to help me study.
Read Chapter 1, “is it really about race?” from the university’s Common read: Ljeoma Oluo, So You Want to Talk About Race.
In Chapter 1, “Is it really about race?,” the author states: “It is about race if a person of color thinks it is about race. It is about race if it disproportionately or differently affects people of color. It is about race if it fits into a broader pattern of events that disproportionately or differently affect people of color.”
After reading the author’s explanation of these points, can you think of social or political issues that many people currently believe are not about race, but actually may be?
Which of the above guidelines for understanding when it is about race fit those issues?
Do you need a community to deal with the systemic issue of racism?
