Police officers who shot Indian teen get medals
Okla. — Two recipients of the Oklahoma Sheriff’s Association Medal of Honor were also involved in the shooting death of Mah-hi-Vist GoodBlanket. The parents of GoodBlanket feel that both the shooting of their son and the awards given are unjustified.
koalanoises said: Do you or any of your followers have book recommendations to help white people understand anti-black racism? Particularly ones with statistics? I read a book a few years back that helped me get it, but I can't remember the title or author. I imagine there must be several books with the actual numbers that prove racism exists. I think it would help me convince some people, particularly those who dismiss me as "brainwashed" into "believing" black people about racism (it's a huge number of people).
I personally have Black Stats: African Americans by the Numbers in the Twenty-first Century, a book that was given to me by one of my followers. It’s more about Black community stats in general, but some does show how racism benefits.
There is a project that I’m starting to help put a better perspective into things. I can’t personally tell you about more books, as I read a lot of formal essays verses books.
Hopefully, as time goes on, I can recommend more books.
Here are some that have helped me:
The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander
Behind the Eight Ball by Tanya Sharpe- this book is a qualitative study on women and crack cocaine but the first few chapters give a really concise history of the effects of slavery on the black community)
Race and Class: Why both matter by I. Kawachi- this is a short paper on how racism has benefitted white people through industrialization and during the labor movement
Levels of Racism: A theoretical framework and a gardener’s tale- by C. P. Jones. This is another short and simple paper but very helpful if you’re just starting to think about racism.
