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 Michael Durham Hi, everyone. Who’s excited to talk about racism some more tomorrow? I look forward to reading here or hearing tomorrow what you thought about that interview with Ibram X Kendi. Best, Michael Amy Guillory What’s the difference between not racist and antiracist? 1. Prior to the segment, I did not know there was a difference between being not racist and antiracist. However, after the training, I understand the distinct difference and value the “action” of actively countering racism. 2. In reviewing company policies, I do not see where there is an adverse impact. However, it is imperative to review the policies regularly to ensure continued fairness. Michael Durham Thanks for your reflection, Amy! Author Posts Viewing 3 reply threads You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
