Contemporary Global Impacts book
African Americans and their organizations have continued to lead the charge to win the last great battle of the United States-the one for implementation of real freedom, justice, and democracy. Contemporary versions of the black counter-framing reject notions of racial inferiority and superiority and envision real progress to social justice and reconciliation. The primary socialization and transmission of the home-culture frame and the anti-racist counter-frame regularly take place in friendship and kinship groups and community organizations. One of the great contributions that African Americans have made to the society is many incisive, realistic, and honest analyses of systemic racism. Like other black Americans, youths spend much time trying to make sense of and deal with subtle and blatant discrimination in their everyday lives. The full acceptance of the white-racist reality would conflict with the dominant framing of white-group virtuousness and thus it should require the dramatic actions to eradicate systemic racism that insisted upon by African American thinkers and activists.
