ItemBlack Lives Matter and the Public Rediscovery of Structural Racism(2021) Hyatt, Susan B.; Anthropology, School of Liberal ArtsAsset-Based Community Development promises to empower local communities while failing to address racialized disparities. We must look to broad-based social movements such as Black Lives Matter if we wish to create a genuinely more equitable and anti-racist world ItemPlaying Offense: How Athletes are Impacting a Changing Administrative State(2022) Thomas, M. Blair; Levine Daniel, JamieThe start of the 2020s presents a broken American administrative system plagued by state ineptitude in a time of turmoil and government distrust. In their protests, marginalized citizens have seen their voices amplified by integral parts of their communities for whom they have cheered: Athletes. This Perspective draws attention to the idea of super citizens and their ability to influence policy. We argue that Black athlete activism that centers their social reality and legitimizes Black Lives Matter for broader populations is one example of a punctuated equilibrium that work to achieve administrative state change. ItemA Review of Nursing Position Statements on Racism Following the Murder of George Floyd and Other Black Americans(Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (Wolters Kluwer), 2021-07) Knopf, Amelia; Budhwani, Henna; Logie, Carmen H.; Oruche, Ukamaka M.; Wyatt, Erin; Burke Draucker, Claire; School of NursingNational outrage over the killings of George Floyd and other Black Americans in the United States prompted public outcry against police brutality and racism in law enforcement and drew national attention to systemic racism as a public health crisis. In response, during the summer of 2020 many health organizations issued position statements in response to the murders. This article examines such statements issued by 3 prominent nursing organizations and 18 schools of nursing. Thematic analysis revealed six themes in the statements of the professional organizations, and a content analysis revealed that the statements of the schools of nursing were generally aligned with these themes. Such position statements can provide a viable approach to the public commitment to anti-racist reforms, but it is unclear if such statements can promote meaningful and measurable change.
