Racism is a serious social issue that negatively impacts everyone, including white people. Racial literacy–the ability to understand ourselves in society through the lens of racism–is the weakest area of human knowledge today. From her position in higher education, Samantha advocates for the universalization of coursework in race and racism across college and university campuses as a first step to remedy the rampant violence and dehumanization of non-white peoples.
