Reconstruction failed and dismantling racism failed because the starting point of racism as a core attribute of this society is in the Native American genocide … As long as we do not start with this foundational experience, we can not build anything of a different nature than racist institutions.

I agree and we have a lot of work to do in this regard as well. We’re working to include Native American Studies as part of our district curriculum and we know this is just the beginning.

I cycle around that area and have always wondered why no one bothered putting up a sign with the history of the place.
Fatema Baldiwala
54:51
Sharing because we live close by and though you might find it interesting and also how close it is to home.

The context of the illustrations, Eugenia, was a depression in the 1870's and the claims of the white working class that Asian immigrants were "stealing" the jobs of white workers.
Eugenia Sumnik-Levins
55:49
But where were they published, Chris?
Fatema Baldiwala
56:06
Doesn't that "reasoning" still hold true today too? If not the Chinese, then the Mexican or the Muslims

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Is there a prompt?

On the topic of Dr. Seuss, at the same time that he was drawing racist anti-Japanese cartoons (https://apjjf.org/data/5063_-_1.jpg), he was also forward-thinking when it came to black-white relations and advocated for African-American equal employment, such as in this cartoon (https://library.ucsd.edu/dc/object/bb1092978w/_3.jpg). It’s an interesting paradox.
Mary Copeland
01:00:53
I will want to offer extra credit to my students for contributing to the Anti-Racism art project -- will you be sending out information how to contribute?

Just wanted to add an interesting article since they mentioned the Japanese internment camps earlier. Here's an article on Bob Fletcher, a white Sacramento farmer who helped the Japanese American families and there farms during 1942 through 1945 when the Japanese internment camps were created (executive order 9066) https://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-xpm-2013-jun-03-la-me-bob-fletcher-20130604-story.htmltid=a_classic-iphone&no_nav=true
