This week, Perpetual Notion Machine explores systemic racism.
In light of Black History Month, host Anita Nsubuga discusses the effects of racism, specifically systemic racism on people of color (with emphasis on black Americans) with guest Tiffany Green.
Joined by Dr. Tiffany Green, Ph.D, assistant professor from the University of Wisconsin, Population Health Sciences, they distill the ways racism appears in the structural frameworks of our society. They look at the current state of policies and their effect on people of color. There is a broad look at wealth and the history.
Tying back to the present, COVID-era effects and policing are broadly addressed. With the change in administration, there is hope – albeit hesitant.
Can structural racism truly end? Or, will it remain insidious and unchanged?
Stay tuned. Only time will tell.
