How to fight racism & How not to

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.
