Systematic Oppression

Systematic Oppression

This video was produced by Lee M. Thurston High School sophomore, Fredrick Swopes.

This video shines a light on the many ways people continue to be oppressed in the United States. Whether a person is LGBTQ, or a person of color, or both, these marginalized groups face acts of racism and oppression on a regular basis. This must stop.
