When examined through the prism of critical race theory, Humza Deas’s image of the traffic jam provides a powerful insight into the pervasive racial segregation found in urban settings. It highlights how urban architecture sustains disparities between Black and White neighborhoods, underscoring the structural character of racism. Examining the picture closely reveals the long-lasting effects of discriminatory urban planning, as seen in the clear separation between suburban and urban areas made worse by clogged roads. Highways act as physical barriers to separate Black areas and preserve social and economic inequality, reflecting historical patterns of oppression. Viewers are forced to confront the intricate interplay between beauty and turmoil in the urban scene through Deas’s vision, which challenges them to acknowledge and resolve the long-lasting effects.#SLABEEBER#UBRANPLANNING
