 Chicano Studies department made after a hunger strike.    
Not so “fun” fact:  
Ucla 65% male professors, 65% white professors, only 5.1% hispanic professors  
Why is it important to speak about race now more than ever?   - Trump gave a license to people to come out as racist   - It’s everywhere and everything we do, since it has oppressed us through our past   - Race is an uncomfortable topic to talk about so it needs to be talked about   - Racism has been swept under the rug so needs to be talked about   - Gradual narrative   - Stop living in a bubble    
Possessive Investment in Whiteness 
- Whiteness a social construct and created/maintained through social structures   - Whiteness has been naturalized   - Racism takes different forms and serves different social purposes   - POC are demonized by being blamed (victim is blamed) and white privilege is hidden by 
blaming crimes on family values, fatherhood, and fore-sight rather than to favoritism   
- Federal Housing Act; how all loans going to whites and away of poc  - Value of whiteness produced by how resources have been channeled to whites through:   - Housing, bank loans, laws, labor unions, enforcement of laws, environmental 
racism, generational wealth, education and tax reform  
- Whites are credited with being “smarter or not lazy” and not shown that the 
resources/laws have been channeled to benefit them  
Social Location  
- Social features of your position in society based on your location   - Systems of power and privilege constructed through class, citizenship, weight, gender, 
- System of Power: ​ a group phenomenon, institutional power and authority are used to  support prejudices and enforce discriminatory behaviors in a systematic way   - Everyone is socialized to participate in oppressive practices (direct or indirect)   -   Oppression:   - prejudice and discrimination directed toward whole socially recognized groups of people 
and promoted by the ideologies and practices of all social institutions  
- Oppressions becomes as naturalized as “common sense”   - Ex: woman being weaker/more emotional, whites being smarter, etc   Individual v. Systematic
