    Abstract:
    This Article builds upon the foundation laid in 2018 in Racial Justice Demands Truth & Reconciliation, which outlined the sad reality of "a persistent, deeply-rooted systemic racism [that] has worked, without interruption, to oppress people of color on this continent . . . [f]rom the earliest days of the slave markets of Virginia in 1619, to the [present-day's continuing] economic disadvantages and disproportionately-skewed criminal justice system."2 The human toll of this centuries-long cruel travesty, as described by Ta-Nehisi Coates, is tragic and heartbreaking.3
