9 Key Definitions for Understanding Racism Perception State of being or process of becoming aware of something through the senses Mental impression Prejudice Preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience Dislike, hostility, or unjust behavior deriving from unfounded opinions

10 Key Definitions for Understanding Racism Discrimination Recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another. Unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex (i.e. racial discrimination) Racism Race as a social construct (human sorting and classification) A system, implying a set of agreed upon rules, processes, criteria and judgments used to sort and classify people Racism = Race Prejudice + Power (The People s Institute for Survival and Beyond)

11 Understanding Racism Racism is deeply embedded in the 9 primary areas of human activity Economics Education Entertainment Labor Law Politics Religion Sex War / Counter-War As described in The United Independent Compensatory Code: A Text Book/Work Book for Victims of Racism/White Supremacy; By Neeley Fuller, Jr., 1969.

12 The Race Debate It s a debate about the meaning and existence of racism. We need to shift the popular understanding of racism from personal prejudice to institutional inequality. We need to illuminate racism in order to eliminate racism. 2009, Adapted from Race Forward, Formerly the Applied Research Center

13 Dominant Terms of the Race Debate Post-Racialism Transcending Race Colorblindness 2009, Adapted from Race Forward, Formerly the Applied Research Center

14 Race is a Social and Political Construct In the United States both scholars and the general public have been conditioned to viewing human races as natural and separate divisions within the human species based on visible physical differences. With the vast expansion of scientific knowledge in this century, however, it has become clear that human populations are not unambiguous, clearly demarcated, biologically distinct groups. Evidence from the analysis of genetics (e.g., DNA) indicates that most physical variation, about 94%, lies within so-called racial groups. Conventional geographic "racial" groupings differ from one another only in about 6% of their genes. This means that there is greater variation within "racial" groups than between them. In neighboring populations there is much overlapping of genes and their phenotypic (physical) expressions. Throughout history whenever different groups have come into contact, they have interbred. The continued sharing of genetic materials has maintained all of humankind as a single species. American Anthropological Association Statement on "Race (May 17, 1998)

15 Key Definitions for Understanding Racism Stereotype a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing Bias Prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair Types of Bias = Conscious vs. Unconscious / Implicit

16 Key Definition Racism o An act, a practice or a process based on race (race judgment) o A system, implying a set of agreed upon rules, processes, criteria and judgments used to sort and classify people o Several levels of racism

21 Structural Racism: Key Definition a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity. It identifies dimensions of our history and culture that have allowed privileges associated with whiteness and disadvantages associated with color to endure and adapt over time. offers a conceptual framework for understanding the general cultural assumptions, values, ideologies, and stereotypes that allow disparities to go unchallenged. Definition discussed further in the publication Structural Racism and Community Building; published by The Aspen Institute Roundtable on Community Change. Retrieved online at:

22 Understanding Racism Structural Racism lens allows us to see and understand a) the racial legacy of our past. What is the historical context? b) how racism persists in our national policies, institutional practices, and cultural representations What is the present-day manifestation? c) how racism is transmitted and either amplified or mitigated through public, private, and community institutions. What is the role of institutions? d) how individuals internalize and respond to racialized structures. What is the response of individuals?

23 Racial Justice Racial Justice Diversity (Diversity = Variety) Racial Justice Equality (Equality = Sameness) Racial Justice = Equity (Equity = Fairness, Justice) 2009, Adapted from Race Forward, Formerly the Applied Research Center

This only works when people start with the resources and opportunities they from the same place, history and set of need, given their history and set of circumstances. circumstances.

25 Racial Justice Definition: Racial Justice is the creation and proactive reinforcement of policies, practices, attitudes and actions that produce equitable power, access, opportunities, treatment, impacts and outcomes for all. Indicators: Equitable impacts and outcomes across race is the evidence of racial justice. 2009, Adapted from Race Forward, Formerly the Applied Research Center

26 Racial Justice: Strategy for Change Focuses on changing systems, institutional practices, policies and outcomes. Cannot just be reactive -- must propose equitable solutions and engage in proactive strategies. Requires ongoing consciousness and strategic action. We cannot be colorblind or silent. Race Forward / f. Applied Research Center, 2009)

27 Different Strategies for Addressing Racism at Different Levels Internalized Racism support groups, racial healing mentoring, counseling Interpersonal Racism Institutional Racism Structural Racism diversity trainings cross-cultural dialogues, dinners changing policy and practices creating new institutions highlighting history, root causes challenging racist myths, ideologies lifting new values and embedding them in the structures that determine our ways of life.
