New Report: Moving the Race Conversation Forward
RaceForward (formerly the Applied Research Center and publisher of Colorlines) has released a report which
- analyzes conversations about race in the “mainstream” media (Surprise! The mainstream doesn’t talk much about systems!),
- describes seven harmful racial discourse practices, and
- features case studies of attempts to change this harmful discourse.
They invited Jay Smooth to do a quick rundown, though he doesn’t so much give an overview as describe the difference between individual and systemic racism. Take a 5-minute break to look at it.
