How not to fight racism:
How to fight racism:
- Challenge any and all racial stereotypes.
- Acknowledge and fight the racism you have internalized.
- Acknowledge and fight external racism.
- Address someone when expressing something racist, in a nonviolent and logical way.
- Address it when members of your own race are fighting racism in the wrong way.
- Do not use the term “reverse racism.”
- Don’t be biased, be consistent when addressing racial issues.
- Do not overlook problematic beliefs just because the person expressing them is agreeing with you.
- Don’t enforce stereotypes.
Things to remember:
- Racism isn’t specific to any certain group.
- That reverse racism isn’t a thing because the definition of racism is not race-specific, not because you think a white person can’t experience racism.
- The definition of racism.
- Calling someone names or using bad language won’t make a difference.
- Making blogs dedicated to shaming white people won’t help, either.
- Making fun of “white” culture won’t help.
- No one’s feelings should be devalued because of their race alone.
- That racist ideas and stereotypes are literally shoved down our throats at a young age and that many people don’t even know they’re racist or posses racist beliefs.
- That adding more racism will not solve anything.
