Structural racism is a powerful force spread across multiple systems and institutions and is extremely pernicious and resilient. White people are the source and the sustainers of structural racism and recreate it every day when they are silent about police “protection,” seek out “good” schools, allow monetized healthcare, “integrate” neighborhoods through the displacement of gentrification…
After hundreds of years of damage are we at a tipping point that will lead to real and lasting change? Will ethical humanists join efforts to repair the damage of structural racism and help usher in a more equitable and compassionate society?
“One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an antiracist. There is no in-between safe space of ‘not racist.’ The claim of ‘not racist’ neutrality is a mask for racism.” ― Ibram X. Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist
