What Taison says here is almost a pretty direct quote from the beginning of the latest book by Ibram Kendi. The book, called How to Be an Antiracist does a pretty nice job of clearly describing some of the issues with structural racism that we see today.

If you think Antiracism is a topic that is really interesting to you, I would recommend that book and also White Fragility by Robin Diangelo.

(Source: I work on a Structural Racism task force in my city in America and have done a lot of work in the field of Antiracism for the last 5 years or so.)

There is a good book on this topic called How to Be an Anti-Racist by Ibram Kendi, which you can find on Amazon here, or perhaps at your local library.

synopsis: This week, Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) sits down with human rights lawyer, activist, and author Arjun Sethi (@arjunsethi81) to discuss the one year anniversary of his book, American Hate: Survivors Speak Out —as relevant as ever after the massacres in El Paso… and, in the short time since, the arrests of six white men on charges related to mass violence. Arjun and Ana also discuss their frustration with how hate crimes are typically depicted in the media, and how the average American can get involved in the fight against white supremacy.

Then, Ibram X. Kendi (@DrIbram) from The Atlantic discusses his bestelling new book, How to Be an Antiracist. In soft-spoken, gentle urgency, Ibram guides us through the idea “there is no neutrality” in the face of racism: there is only racism and anti-racism. Ibram and Ana then discuss his various encounters with cancer; exploring a profound extended metaphor between the disease and racism in America.

>Rassismus hat immer etwas mit Machtstrukturen zu tun.

Sieht ganz so aus. Professor Ibram X. Kendi bringt das in seinem Buch How to Be an Antiracist auf den Punkt.

  • Everything in the world is either racist or antiracist. If discrimination is creating equity, then it is antiracist. If discrimination is creating inequity, then it is racist. Inequity is defined as any difference between any ethnic groups in their average outcomes in any field of life or work.
  • All there is is power. You either wield it or are controlled by it. And power is simply the ability to implement racist or antiracist policy.
  • There is no such thing as a nonracist or race-neutral policy

    In diesem Licht betrachtet, erfüllen auch Zustände wie dieser hier die Kriterien für Rassismus: Keiner der deutschen Uni-Chefs kommt aus Ostdeutschland
