Henry & Tator (2006) ( http://www.aclrc.com/forms-of-racism ) defined structural racism as ‘…inequalities rooted in the system-wide operation of a society that excludes substantial numbers of members of particular groups from significant participation in major social institutions.’
With all the protests going on in the US right now, many people ask ‘How could this happen?’ The thing is that many people within the US don’t even know about many of these policies that were put in place over many years that have a ripple effect on the people of today.
We should all reflect on policies that are put in effect today that may effect us as a society tomorrow.
Round two of Cooking in English! This time we have the traditional Irish dessert Apple Crumble made by none other than Clare herself. It’s a typical dessert in Ireland mainly due to the locally sourced basic ingredients, such as flour, butter, sugar and apples. It’s usually an autumn or winter dessert as it’s best served warm. Clare and her siblings sometimes came home and what started as a merienda turned into a full Apple Crumble meal.
