And so the American racism saga continues. Yes, in this modern day black folks are still being hunted down and discriminated against — many times at the cost of their lives. Racism and racial injustices are still alive! And the criminal justice system, this so-called (non-existent) post-racial society and non-acknowledgement of white privilege are to blame. This country will forever be plauged to racism and race and the impact they’ve had on the social, political, economical and historical significance of black people.

MadameNoire has collected 15 instances of modern-day institutionalized racism, racial profiling and police brutality. Celebrating black history is not only about our triumphs, but it’s about our struggles and bringing national attention to not just a few of these cases, but all!

Bringing national attention to the racial injustice of Emmett Till is what sparked the Civil Rights Movement. Unfortunately, these 15 cases are very similar to what to Till 60 years ago. The fight continues.

Please sound off on more racial injustices in the comments section below.
