If you want to get a hint of how much of your knowledge of history has been white washed, I HIGHLY recommend this lecture with Akala:

And if you're from the UK, you definitely want to watch this too (still Akala)

@maloki very interesting. The fact that the setting is in scotland really help support what Akala is saying.

@maloki the part about glasgow and the knife crime vs london.
The part where jamaica had a pact (for lack of the actual technical term) with england/britain before scotland did.
His scotish grampa hating his english grampa more than his skin colour.
The language part in scotland vs in jamica where they speak english

That in a scotish audience works very well to make those point around specifically targeting people for their skin color while making it about anything but skin colour
