Michael presented on the journey to anti-racism at your organization. Your homework is to listen to or read this 6-minute interview with Ibram X Kendi: https://www.npr.org/2019/08/13/750709263/ibram-x-kendis-latest-book-how-to-be-an-antiracist

Reflect on these questions, then respond in the discussion board below as much as you’re willing.
*What’s the difference between not racist and antiracist?
*Kendi argues that “racist” is a descriptive term, not a pejorative. Is that consistent with how you felt previously?
*Kendi says a policy is racist if it has an unequal effect on marginalized races. What policies in your own organization may have an unequal effect on
people of color (either staff or clients)?

Bonus/Optional: watch this longer talk with Kendi and Jemele Hill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzuOlyyQlug
