From the book White Rage by Carol Anderson, Ph.D page 22. Mississippi finally got around to ratifying the 13th amendment in 2013. Fact verified by theguardian.
This shows just how one form of slavery was replaced by another after the civil war. With chattel slavery being replaced with the Black Codes.
The list of historic trauma against BIPOC gets larger and larger the more I read. I am getting sad reading Ijeoma Oluo So you want to talk about race page 24.
Here's a quote to confirm from thoughtco
"Imagine going to the hospital for a common surgical procedure such as an appendectomy, only to find out afterward that you’d been sterilized. In the 20th century, untold numbers of women of color endured such life-altering experiences in part because of medical racism. " By Nadra Kareem Nittle

This occurred in the 20th century not that long ago.
More historic trauma, "1963 half of Blacks lived below poverty line" page 458 according to Howard Zinn's A people's History of the United States.
There is so much depth on racism in the United States. Thriving Black communities destroyed by white man's roads.
More on thriving Black communities being destroyed. I've been researching white supremacy and racism for over a year and I had to watch this video in two parts, pausing halfway through when the video got to be too much for me.

"The Rosewood massacre was a racially motivated massacre of black people and the destruction of a black town that took place during the first week of January 1923 in rural Levy County, Florida, United States." wikipedia
"The attackers burned and destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the neighborhood—at the time one of the wealthiest black communities in the United States, colloquially known as "Black Wall Street."" wikipedia
If this was taught in my school it was only quickly brushed over as a small footnote. I find it really interesting that these events prove Black people despite being minoritized and racialized can succeed despite the odds in a capitalistic society. Until white terrorists burn and raze their economic centers.
Another example of intersectionality, that Black women have been invisibilized in the law and in media.
"According to research, black women are 17% more likely to be stopped by police and 150% more likely to be killed than their white counterparts."
There is this myth of meritocracy taught in school. That in the United States there is the myth of the American dream. That anyone can make it if you just work hard.
While meritocracy sounds good on paper it ignores unconscious bias and prejudice leading to colorblind racism. Furthermore, it ignores inter generational wealth. Next, there is BIPOC meaning that Blacks and indigenous peoples are more historically marginalized and systematically divested than Latinx and Asians communities. Finally, there is intersectionality, which is made crystal clear with the history of voting rights.
BIPOC women finally got the right to vote in 1965 with the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
White Fragility Robin Diangelo page 21 paragraph two.
White women got the right to vote in 1920 with the 19th amendment.
Black men got the right to vote in 1865 with the 13th amendment, but with resistance from southern states.
Rich white men got the right to vote in 1789 with the Constitution becoming effective.
In other words, universal suffrage didn't become effective to 1965 or 176 years after rich white men first got voting rights. This if anything proves white male privilege and disproves the myth of meritocracy.
Notice, in the above wiki and history books that BIPOC women's suffrage is skipped over. Yay the constitution is effective in 1789 everyone can vote, and by everyone we mean rich white males which make up 6% of the population.
Do you think those rich white males voted to entrench their power? You bet using the power of the government, laws, and military the white male elite abused their power to become enslavers, steal millions of acres of lands from American Indians which ethnic cleansing, commit ethnocide, and genocide. Adding to their control over the media to spread disinformation and stereotypes and economic dominance which rich white elites had without voting rights.
The compounding of intersectionality, with inter-generation wealth, enslaving, ethnic cleansing, ethnocide, and genocide has far and deep reaching effects. Let's face it meritocracy and the American Dream that anyone can make it if they simply work hard are colorblind racism and colorblind white supremacy.
Racialized people are forced to be near pollution from coal plants and industry. Again, destroying the myth of meritocracy.
"A study published in March in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA shows that even though black and Hispanic people in the U.S. are exposed to more air pollution than white people, these groups consume less from the industries generating much of that pollution." Andrea Thompson,
This leads to more asthma and deaths. This is a strong incentive to reach a goal of zero emissions. This would really benefit BIPOC people more than whites.
