People of all races harbor some form of prejudice showing partiality or favoritism toward those more like themselves and fear, mistrust or hatred toward those less like themselves. Such prejudice becomes racism or other forms of oppression when it has the social, economic, political and military power to implement, enforce and maintain its form of prejudice. To what extent have we progressed from the racism and oppression of our past, and to what extent are we a present-day reflection of it? Join us for this sixth meeting of the Racism in America series to find. Each forum is a potluck gathering where we invite you to share a dish along with your thoughts.
