HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

When presenting evaluation findings, a key challenge is to try to make sure that people who view these findings can also see the underlying analysis of why these differences exist, and how they might be addressed. The reason this is so important is that, without a context for viewing the data, people will create their own explanations. And people without an understanding of the cumulative effects of institutional and structural racism often tend to look only or mostly at individual explanations that end up “blaming the victim” for poor group outcomes.
