In their “One Minneapolis” community indicators report, the Minneapolis Foundation confirms that in the aggregate, the academic performances of students of color declines from grades 6 through high school. Through our African American Male Alliance, we provide a constellation of services that support learning readiness. We connect mentors to students, rally community advocacy and assets in support of schools, and serve as a bridge for connecting people, congregations other organizations and resources to help students and families win.
Racial injustice is a verified reality in every aspect of American life. It's effect is seen in racially categorized social indicators. These indicators of wealth, employment, education, home ownership, criminal justice, health and others are symptoms of a pathological system that hurts everyone. It is not a passing common cold.
The pathology was sown into our culture by individuals who sought to establish a culture that would sustain the dehumanization of certain people for the purpose of exploitation. These cultural drivers include the perversion of religion, the distortion of history, and science, and an assurance that those who conform to the ideal would experience privileges in society. This ideal that some call "White Supremacy" has savaged our societies and people of all ethnicities.
At Hope United CDC, we are busily working to foster and support racial healing through increasing awareness, learning and action.
