Anti Racism People of Color Caucus

The joint caucus will be meeting instead of the separate caucuses until our history project is complete and ready.  We are currently researching the racial history of Greensboro/Guilford County in an effort to see our roots and how far we have come and where we see the effects of this history.  We hope to see you all at our meets.  Please feel free to bring your dinner or refreshments.

The caucus provides a safe environment for people of color to share information, feelings, experiences, and interactions that have occurred during our lives. Race and racism lives in the lives of people of color in ways that are very different from the impact of race in the lives of white people.  We believe that our professional and personal lives are affected by racism and that by having dialogue as a collective, we can emerge as a community capable of restoring the full potential of all of our members.

    I'm a 60yo black male whose family is currently dealing with devastating racial events. One single event that happened some time ago but is part of the ongoing assault on the well-being of my family. That event took place in Asheboro, NC, the Randolph County courthouse. A Court-appointed Attorney told my wife and I that the judge is going to believe the white walmart employee before they would believe my son or us. The conflict between my family and public officials is particularly scary because there has been a violent against me, a case being litigated at this time for damages. We're scared and are now trying to get out of the state and maybe the country. America is a horrible hypocrisy, that why our democracy doesn't work.
