BREAD AND CIRCUSES

During the Great Depression, unemployment among African-Americans was twice that of whites – mostly due to segregation. One rare opportunity came on the Pullman sleeper trains, where most of the porters were black. (1:50) https://www.smithsonianmag.com/

Diversity Has Become a Booming Business. So Where Are the Results?

People of color–who make up nearly 40% of the U.S. population–remain acutely underrepresented in most influential fields. From 2009 to 2018 the percentage of black law partners inched up from 1.7% to 1.8%. From 1985 to 2016, the proportion of black men in management at U.S. companies with 100 or more employees barely budged–from 3% to 3.2%. People of color held about 16% of Fortune 500 board seats in 2018. A 2018 survey of the 15 largest public fashion and apparel companies found that nonwhites held only 11% of board seats and that nearly three-quarters of company CEOs were white men. And in the top 200 film releases of 2017, minorities accounted for 7.8% of writers, 12.6% of directors and 19.8% of lead roles. https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/diversity-has-become-a-booming-business-so-where-are-the-results

City of Madison Wisconsin declares racism a public health crisis

“It’s now been proven that the stress caused by the pressures of racism is a leading indicator of health disparities for African Americans,” he said. “We now know that because of stress, we, African Americans, are contracting diseases faster than our white counterparts and then dying sooner.”  https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/city-of-madison-wisconsin-declares-racism-a-public-health-crisis

Study reveals how racism shortens lives and hurts health of black people

Scientists have searched for genetic causes to health disparities between blacks and whites but have had limited success. The strongest evidence to date points to social-environmental factors such as poverty, health care inequities and racism. https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/study-reveals-how-racism-shortens-lives-and-hurts-health-of-black-people

Racism, Mental Health, and Mental Health Practice

In this article, the authors present an interdisciplinary discussion of the multiple dimensions of racism and formulate conceptions of its impact on the formation of healthy personalities. They describe how racism has both ideological and structural components and perpetuates itself recursively at the macro- (e.g., group, institution) and micro-levels (e.g., interpersonal).  As one consequence of its embedded, cyclical nature, efforts to treat client problems that involve issues of race and racism will necessarily entail piercing distortions in reality, encouraging self-moral development, and eliciting risk-taking behaviors. To take part in transforming current structures of racism, counseling psychologists are urged to extend these strategies beyond the therapeutic milieu. Implications for practice, training, and research are presented. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Helen_Neville3/publication/247736841_Racism_Mental_Health_and_Mental_Health_Practice/links/58eb9a76aca272bd2875e…

‘Growing sense of despair’: A wealthy, diversifying school system in suburban D.C. confronts racism

“When students and staff experience racial insults, slurs, and/or other hate speech, we lack the positive culture and climate that supports students’ growth,” Williams said in the statement, adding that the school system “rejects racist and other hateful behavior and language, recognizing that it encourages discrimination, hatred, oppression, and violence.” Full Article: https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/growing-sense-of-despair-a-wealthy-diversifying-school-system-in-suburban-d-c-confronts-racism

Criminal Law and Justice System Practices as Racist, White, and Racialized

Race and age operate as we might expect: Members of a racial minority group (blacks) and the young are disproportionately represented in arrest, court, and prison populations.' But members of the socially subordinate gender group (women) are disproportionately less likely to be represented in arrest, court, and prison populations. Although the general expectations of power-based theories hold true within gender groups-that is, 60 % of women and men imprisoned are members of racial minority groupsT-such power-based theories cannot explain the disproportionate presence of men under formal criminal justice control. The demography of crime and justice poses challenges for both feminist.

White People Are Fine With Laws That Harm Blacks

But according to a new study from Stanford University psychologists Rebecca C. Hetey and Jennifer L. Eberhardt, the stats-first approach to issues of race and incarceration isn’t effective—in fact, it’s potentially counterproductive. Hetey and Eberhardt conducted two experiments, one in San Francisco and one in New York City. In the former, a white female researcher recruited 62 white voters from a train station to watch a video that flashed 80 mug shots of black and white male inmates. Here’s where it gets interesting.

HISTORY OF THE CHURCH AND SLAVERY: PARTICIPATION, CONVERSION, ABOLITION

Even though there were missionaries in the Islands who were devoted to the abolition of slavery, there were some that were just as bad as the plantation holders when it came to the treatment of their slaves.  Halley argued that the Baptist missionaries in Barbados petitioned for the emancipation of slaves or at least the improvement of their living conditions, yet they were severely mistreating their own slaves.  He also reported that the missionaries  neglected the slaves' religious lessons, and did not permit their slaves to learn to read.  The slaves were not even given their Sabbath to worship. This time was allotted to them to care for their own land. https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/history-of-the-church-and-slavery-participation-conversion-abolition

The History of Religion, Race, Racism & Slavery in America: Where was/is the Church?

Reason might suggest that pro-slavery Christians could use either the mark of Cain or the curse of Ham but not both; after all, the flood Noah and his family survived killed everyone else. An article in the 1850 Southern Presbyterian Review titled “The Mark of Cain and Curse of Ham” suggests otherwise; in it the author cites both these biblical figures to argue that “the special Providence of God” created “the varieties found existing in the family of man.” In other words, God created the different races on purpose. The 1850 essay notes some problems in using both the Cain and Ham rationale for slavery but only in the spirit of strengthening pro-slavery arguments. Although the author concludes that multiples races of people could be attributed to Ham, he does “not doubt that the African negro descended from this [cursed] son of Noah.” https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/the-history-of-religion-race-racism-slavery-in-america-where-was-is-the-church

HOW MEDIA AND POLICY STARTED & FED STEREOTYPES ABOUT AFRICAN AMERICANS This documentary is about Hollywood strategically forcing certain negative images and stereotypes on black people and stolen recipes that's still standing to this day. They try to make it seem like Jack Daniels was such a friend to his so called buddy. Well if so then how come Mr Green didn't get 50% of the revenue? https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/how-media-and-policy-started-fed-stereotypes-about-african-americans
