The Unequal Opportunity Race

A few days ago, I came across the African American Policy Forum, a project dedicated to discussing issues like intersectionality, affirmative action, and structural racism. The website specifically focuses on how these issues relate to African-American communities and how individuals from these communities can get involved in the conversation. Overall, the website is well-structured and very informative. For those interested in learning more about the project, click the link below.

On the website, I came across a video that depicts the Unequal Opportunity Race. The video is about 4 minutes long, and is without words. The effect of having a video without words is that the images really are forced to speak for themselves. I thought that the video made some interesting points. I personally would have used different images, but it did raise some thoughts. Take a look at the video below, and let us know what you think.

  1. Wow. a lot said using very few words. Of course the whole picture is a lot more complicated that the creator made it seem, but if you understand the history associated with the various terms used in the video, you definitely understand what the creators are not so subtly hinting at.
