Colorblind Racism in the City of Racine

Posted: August 30, 2015 in The Film

” It is my opinion that the Public Safety and Licensing Committee of the Common Council did discriminate against minority tavern owners by disproportionately focusing on their establishments despite a lack of evidence for doing so. I conclude that such a practice is consistent with the City’s push to gentrify the downtown area, an initiative which has been historically unfriendly to people of color, particularly Black and Latino residents and businesses.” Aaron Roussell Ph.D.
