Georgetown Law Professor Sheryll Cashin MIP Make It Plain with Mark Thompson

    • Society & Culture

Sheryll Cashin is a Professor of Law at Georgetown University and has committed to writing extensively about inequality and race relations in America, which is currently culminating in her latest book, “White Space: Black Hood: Opportunity Hoarding in America.” She talks with Mark today about the caste system that was created to contain Black and Brown people--though they are not the only ones ensnared. As the government continues to over-invest in affluent white spaces while dis-investing in/containing/preying on people in high poverty Black and Brown neighborhoods, they spin stories about people in “the hood” to justify the way things are. Professor Cashin is able to show how specific actions by the government uphold decades-old policies like redlining, and keep poverty concentrated in the areas of their choosing.
