Anti-Oppression: Anti-Racism

What is Anti-Racism?

"Being antiracist is fighting against racism. Racism takes several forms and works most often in tandem with at least one other form to reinforce racist ideas, behavior, and policy. Types of racism are: Individual racism ... interpersonal racism ... institutional racism ... structural racism. No one is born racist or antiracist; these result from the choices we make."

From Talking About Race an article from the National Museum of African American History & Culture.
