When the Color Revolution swept the country, it was hailed as a revolution in how we see the world.
It brought about the first black president and the first African American in Congress.
And it set off a movement to make America more racially diverse.
Today, however, there are serious concerns about the continued impact of the Color Revolutions.
For example, the effects of the Racial Justice Act, passed in 1965, and the Voting Rights Act, signed into law in 1965 and 1965 respectively, were both passed with significant support from the right.
In the words of University of Minnesota political scientist Mark Kleiman, they were “largely a continuation of policies of the Jim Crow era.”
The effects of these laws are still being felt today.
In a recent article, Kleiman argued that, since the 1970s, the U.S. has experienced a massive increase in racial disparity and discrimination.
Kleiman argues that, for instance, the country has experienced an average of 30 percent higher racial inequality in the state of California over the past decade, while a similar increase in the national average of racial inequality has only been seen in seven states.
As a result, Kleman argues, “states that were once expected to be progressive, to be inclusive of all, to respect people of all races, now face a staggering amount of racial injustice.”
The impact of these trends, Kleampiches claim, is that the country is more racially homogenous.
Kleampiks findings were echoed by several prominent scholars who spoke at the American Conservative conference.
In his keynote address, University of California-Irvine law professor Stephen Vladeck, the author of the bestselling book The Myth of the Black-White Income Gap, said that, from his own experience, he sees that the Color Rebuilding process has created a “racialized, racially hostile environment” in which “people are less likely to engage with others who look like them and to be open to new ideas and experiences.”
In addition, Vladesons conclusion that the “color revolution” is an “epidemic” and a “threat to the fabric of American society” comes as he is also the co-founder of a national anti-racist organization called Black Lives Matter.
“If you look at the data, it’s absolutely clear that the ‘color revolution’ has had a dramatic impact on the lives of black people and on our society,” Vlases said.
What are some of the major concerns with the Color Rebalancing process? “
So it’s the sort of climate that we have to be very careful of, because we can’t allow it to continue.”
What are some of the major concerns with the Color Rebalancing process?
Vlages contention that the effects are a result of systemic racism is backed up by research.
He cited a study conducted by the University of Florida that found that the more black people the country had, the less likely they were to be elected.
A study conducted at the University Of Pennsylvania found that, over the course of a decade, the number of African American voters in the U of P dropped from 50 percent to 24 percent.
In addition to the racial disparity, the study found that “African Americans were more likely to be incarcerated than whites, were more than twice as likely to experience poverty, and were more often incarcerated for nonviolent offenses than white people.”
Additionally, the authors of the Penn study pointed out that “white Americans are more likely than black Americans to be arrested for drug offenses, and more likely in all crimes than blacks.”
In other words, African Americans are disproportionately incarcerated and incarcerated for more serious offenses.
While these statistics may seem like an alarming statistic, Vlotes claim that the racial disparities in incarceration rates are a product of systemic oppression.
“The idea that African Americans in general, especially African Americans of color, are incarcerated more than whites is a myth,” Vlothes says.
“I think it’s very important to understand that African American people are incarcerated in disproportionate numbers, and that we as a society, as a country, are a racialized society, and it’s a racist society.”
He continues: “We have a racial justice system, and I think it is a racist system, which is a system that has a huge impact on our lives and on the conditions that we live in.”
But what about the effects on black communities?
According to Kleiman and other researchers, the impact of mass incarceration on black Americans has been massive.
The U.N. estimates that at least 2 million black people were incarcerated in the United States between 1965 and 2014, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University.
Kleisch argues that the disproportionate incarceration of black Americans, coupled with the increased racial disparity
