Why Are We Still Talking About Racism?


Published in July 2015, this AJ+ video is a compilation of interviews with people discussing why we are and still need to be talking about race, racism, and racial inequities in the United States. The people interviewed are shown answering questions about what racism looks like, how it has changed, and what can be done to push back and move forward. Opening with a man encouraging us to say that #BlackLivesMatter, topics discussed are first hand experiences with housing discrimination, fear and lack of safety due to racial profiling by police and law enforcement, stereotypical media representations, everyday interactions with bosses, friends, and strangers, broken educational and prison systems, symbolic racism, cultural appropriation, colorblind and post-racial discourse, white supremacy, and persistent cycles of privilege and oppression. AJ+ is a digital news, politics, and current events channel by Al Jazeera Media Network.
