Micro-climates of racial meaning
oAreas marked with historic violence remain in conflict and exhibit inequality
oRacial violence in the past  has led to modern instability
- Racial violence had traces of structural inequalities present today
- White privilege at the cost of black devaluation
- “lingering traces”  woman in the city of Marion claimed that lynching changed
her life Marion most racist city 6 decades later
Remnants can be physical (not just psychological)  structural inequality perpetuated through
dis-accumulation patterns and inter-generational implications for mobility and wealth
Micro-climatedimension of toxicity in our environment
Ida B. Wells launched campaign against lynching – “Red Record”  works that shine light on
racial violence and white supremacism
Organize anti-lynching efforts used accounts from Chicago Tribune to legitimately illustrate
lynching incidents to whites
- Did this in the hope of building oppositional consciousness
- In doing so she illustrated the fact that most people lynched did no crime
(other than being a Negro) - color line murder
- Red Record help sustain and inform indignation over the trivialization (less
important than actually is) of black life  undermining black life
Monroe work
- Undermining of individual Negro led to profound rates of sickness, early
death, and social marginalization (very little progress in their communities)
