“How…do we convince 80% of (white) respondents that racism is an impediment? This perception drives a rejection of the consciousness you need to fight structural racism.”

–  Dr. Tricia Rose

In the lecture, Dr. Rose talks about the history of structural racism, the dangers of colorblind ideology, and the interactive, interdependent, and compounding nature of the five key areas of society where structural racism is “highly dynamic and consequential”: housing, education, mass media, wealth/jobs, and the criminal justice system.
