New Jim Crow

Inspired by The Abolition of White Democracy, have we as a society carried negative attitudes regarding race to present day? Considering mass incarceration and inequality with opportunity for minorities in the United States, it has been suggested that racial stereotypes and a sense of privilege with 'whiteness' have been carried forward. Oppression, inequality, and injustice linger as equality and civil rights are still being pursued.

Currently a student at the University of Wisconsin--Green Bay; double majoring in Democracy & Justice Studies, and History. At the beginning of my college career, I intended to major in Art and then perhaps teach the subject. However, as I continued to take various classes, I soon discovered my passion for equality and justice. In my studies, I've encountered issues of inequality and injustice in the United States. Particularly racial oppression, mass incarceration, and other methods of social control. Disturbed by the material presented through my studies, I would like to make a difference in my forthcoming years. I seek to make a difference by advocating against these crucial injustices by combining my newfound advocacy interest with my lifelong love of art. I hope to shed light on the issues I am concerned about, and inspire others to become advocates for social change. Recognizing inequality and injustice will lead to needed change within our nation.
