Even with diversity there’s White supremacy

Mike R.,
Midlothian, VA.

My six words reflect the reality that even with the increasing diversity in the U.S. and the increased interactions across racial and ethnic lines, White supremacy still exists. I think many people naively assume that the increasing diversity will solve our racial problems. However, racial segregation still exists, under investment in schools where most Black and Brown kids go to school, police still occupy communities of color, mass incarceration of Black and Brown is still happening, etc. And Whites still benefit disproportionately in society and control the money and power. Not only that, racism is still used to divide poor Whites from people of color, whom could otherwise unite and change our oppressive capitalistic system to be much more equitable. White supremacy is alive and well.
