This essay appropriately follows the last Continuing Conversation (January 4, 2016) which focused on white supremacy.  Learn about Chad Crow, “the super chill grandson of Jim Crow.”  Among other things Yawo Brown clarifies the distinction between racism and prejudice, explaining that only “racism is tied to a power structure and access to resources.”  Brown elaborates stating that “Polite White Supremacy relies on three key components to ensure its success: comfort, control, and confidentiality.”  In particular, Brown gives numerous examples of how the control of language and the narrative by the white press, white law enforcement, etc. reinforces negative stereotypes.
