Notes on inequality

Things I’ve read or about to read to help me understand institutional racism.

powerful conversation. a perfect recap of the book I just read: how to be an anti-racist.

the more I learned the more I realised there is so much I don’t know. this film helped me understand the historical context of police brutality.

I learned about the US police system in the first half of the show. And in the second half, three of the greatest coaches of all time talked about how important it is for us to educate ourselves on the topic of racial inequality. as Pope said: we can be held accountable if we are oblivious.
