segregated and under resourced schools; a racialized carceral system; low wages and employment opportunities; limited access to quality and adequate health services and healthful foods, all mark black and brown life in the united states. the veneer of cordiality may have been stripped but, despite mainstream sentiment, this is not a unique moment, rather it is a prolonged affair stretching to the beginning of the country. and this awful lineage can be traced to wealth.
