Alison J. Garrow's curator insight, April 15, 2015 11:00 PM

Module Seven,

 

In this article it talks about the like of Jeremy Lin and the struggles of racism. He has been referred to things such as "Bruce Lee" and weak because of his race. This to me is terrible to think of. In this article it also states that Asian Americans are at the top of the list for being bullied. I would of never though this. I would of thought that it was African Americans because we hear so much about them in the news and all over the internet. I think that what he went through growing up is terrible but he was able to overcome it all and stand out in the end and show everyone the best that he could do. He was able to push through the bamboo ceiling and was able to defeat white supremacy in the end.

Study Links ‘Racial Resentment’ and Voter ID Support - COLORLINES

Study Links ‘Racial Resentment’ and Voter ID Support - COLORLINES | Arrival Cities | Scoop.it

A new survey indicates that people who “harbor negative sentiments towards African Americans” are also more likely to support voter ID laws. And the correlation extends beyond party and ideological lines.

...

One map in the study illustrates that in Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, driver’s license offices that are open more than twice a week are located largely away from rural black populations. An additional map illustrates that areas with high Latino populations also lack offices that issue IDs that will be considered valid if Texas requires them in the upcoming election.

RNC Attendee Throws Food at Black Woman, ‘This is How We Feed Animals!’ - COLORLINES

RNC Attendee Throws Food at Black Woman, ‘This is How We Feed Animals!’ - COLORLINES | Arrival Cities | Scoop.it

Excerpt:

At 8:35pm EST Monday night journalist David Shuster tweeted he had just seen a Republican National Convention (RNC) attendee throw nuts at a black CNN camera woman while yelling “this is how we feed animals.”

 

Shuster’s tweet went viral and in a matter of hours was re-tweeted more than 6,000 times, ultimately leading to CNN releasing an official statement confirming the incident.

 

Talking Points Memo’s Kyle Leighton explains he “generally confirmed” the tweet with a CNN official but the cable news network’s written response does not mention the employees gender or race.

 

CNN’s written statement to Talking Points Memo:

“CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon. CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.”

Youth Say Race Still Matters—So What Are They Doing About It? - COLORLINES

Youth Say Race Still Matters—So What Are They Doing About It? - COLORLINES | Arrival Cities | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, our publisher released a report, “Don’t Call Them Post-Racial,” which surveyed attitudes about race in key systems in U.S. society among young adults 18-25. Dom Apollon’s research team conducted focus groups with dozens of young people in the Los Angeles area, and learned that their thoughts on race are far more nuanced than most polling and commentary has suggested. Theirs is the most diverse generation in U.S. history, but that doesn’t make them post-race. Rather, the young people in the focus groups made clear that they believed race still matters today.
