Using the concept of racial capitalism, as well as several articles focusing on racism and the global environmental crisis both spurred by capitalism, I attempt to have students link materials from an introductory political science class on race and ethnicity politics via a “Teaching Tolerance” Learning Plan. “Teaching Tolerance” is a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center dedicated to critical race consciousness in K-12 classroom, but I make use of the learning plan in the university classroom as a means of increasing racial consciousness amongst university students and teaching them how to connect sociopolitical racial histories to the concept of racial capitalism.
