Don’t Call Them ‘Post-Racial’

The Applied Research Center (ARC) recently released the findings from a study on young people’s attitudes on race, racism and key systems in our society.  This report came out of 16 focus groups in the Los Angeles area.  Key findings include: -Race matters – a large majority of young people assert that race is still a significant factor within various systems, such as criminal justice, education, employment, and immigration. -Millennials are not monolithic – there are differences in how young people of different races and ethnicities view the extent and continued significance of racism in various systems of society. -Racism is often defined in interpersonal terms – though most young people of color have little problem labeling an entire system as racist.
