How Racism Plays Out

Once again, this is from the camp I went to, CLI. This is what we came up with:

How Racism Plays Out in Schools

  • Deragatory terms towards racial groups
  • Racist jokes
  • Assumptions made my looking at your skin color
  • Teachers expecting white kids to be smarter and acting shocked when a person of color knows the right answer
  • Seperation in social groups
  • Teachers trying to help white students get their grades up, and not the students of color.

How Racism Plays Out in the Community

  • Racial Profiling
  • Negative comments about biracial couples
  • Seperated social groups
  • Gang injunction

What we Can Do:

  • Talk to the administration about whats going on
  • Help the administration focus on equity
  • Come together
  • Be friends with people of all different races
  • Educate community members
  • Stand up to people saying racists comments
  • Raise awareness about whats going on in different ways

Maybe this will give you an idea of how to stop racism in your community and notice how it plays out. Comment below and let me know your expiriences with racism in the community! Photo from Google Images (:
