Here’s A Video That Compares Life As A Black And A White Person

In its newest video, Brave New Films displays different studies depicting what it’s like living as a black person compared to a white person in America.

According to a University of Chicago study, résumés with black-sounding names are 50% less likely to get a call back.

What about when a black person wants to buy a car?

Brave New Films cites this study, which says black people are charged roughly $700 more than white people when buying cars.

Multiple studies show black drivers are twice as likely to get pulled over by the cops.

What about buying a house?

The video also cites this ACLU study, which says marijuana use is equal between blacks and whites. However, black people are four times more likely to be arrested.

And in the medical world, according to another study, doctors did not inform black patients as often as white ones about an important heart procedure.

The video concludes by saying, “If this isn’t racism, what is? Racism isn’t over.”
