tweet thread of "new studies" that found things Black people been saying all our lives

@ImFromRaleigh aka Jonathan, holds a Masters in Education and graduates from Harvard this May. He's one of those internet famous guys who often leads discussions that range from determining which fast food restaurants serve the best fried chicken (*cough* Popeyes) to disparities in education. This morning, he launched into a thread of tweets of new studies that describe issues that minority communities have complained of, literally forever. These studies show the myriad of issues that minorities face and how race can influence just about everything, even if we don't realize it. Most of the studies were published in the last 2-3 years showing that these issues have long been overlooked and why the Shriver Center's Racial Justice Training Institute is so important. https://storify.com/WhitneyWJD/new-studies

Too many to list here because tweeters(?) are contiuously posting studies. But I like @ImFromRaleigh's new addition at the very end of this small list

Why White People Downplay Their Individual Racial Privileges

A study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine has shown that racism may accelerate aging in African-American men.

Reviewers will find more spelling errors in your writing if they think you're black
