An article on Agence France-Presse about Americans who have called the police to reports alleged problems with people of color and the role that social networks play in helping to combat racial bias interviews Victoria Wolcott, professor and chair of history, who said, “some whites associate African Americans with disorder, violence or with a lack of cleanliness, as threatening in some way.” “Whites know that you can’t exclude somebody because of their race, so they call the police or challenge them – that’s a legal way,” she said. The article appeared in news outlets around the world, including Yahoo! News.
