You’ve seen it, you know it and maybe you’ve felt it; that ugly stain on our culture; racism. No matter what our ethnic background or skin color, no one that lives in the United States can escape the insidious evil of racism. Used as a tool of economic oppression for nearly 300 years in this country, the pain and the social structure of racism run deep within our culture, affecting everyone.
What do we do when either we ourselves or our neighbors and loved ones suffer under the yoke of racism? How do we work to unravel ourselves from its grasp and not enable, but challenge this oppressive cultural practice? How can we understand the subtle (and not so subtle) messaging in our culture that aids and abets racism and simultaneously, other forms of oppression and most importantly do something about it?
