Racial injustice is a verified reality in every aspect of American life. Its effect is seen in racially categorized social indicators. These indicators of wealth, employment, education, homeownership, 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 idea 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.
The Twin Cities' racial disparities in the determinants of health are staggering! Let's do something about it together.
