Dr. Vernellia R. Randall makes her fourth visit to The Context of White Supremacy. Dr. Randall is a retired Professor of Law at the University of Dayton. She authored Dying While Black – which offers analysis of a medical system saturated with Racism; “Blacks lag behind on nearly every health indicator, including life expectancy, death rates, infant mortality, low birth weight rates and disease rates. Blacks are sicker than Whites. Blacks have shorter lives – Blacks are quite literally dying from [Racism]!” The text also offers suggestions on things black people can do to counter Racism while striving for optimal health – no smoking would be a great recommendation. Tamir Rice, John Crawford, III and his girlfriend Tasha Thomas have focused a great deal of attention on the state of Ohio. It seems fitting that she would be returning to the program the night Ohio State vies for an NCAA football championship – with a black quarterback no less. We’ll get her thoughts on the recent unrest and what it reveals about the System of White Supremacy. She had her own incident of police terrorism with Beavercreek’s finest – the very same department responsible for killing Mr. Crawford. We’ll also get her perspective on the film Selma and an assessment of what’s ahead for 2015.
