Background Information

What does it mean to be "anti-racist"?

“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.” 

- Angela Y. Davis

“The opposite of racist isn't 'not racist.' It is 'anti-racist.' What's the difference? One endorses either the idea of a racial hierarchy as a racist, or racial equality as an anti-racist. One either believes problems are rooted in groups of people, as a racist, or locates the roots of problems in power and policies, as an anti-racist. One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an anti-racist. There is no in-between safe space of 'not racist.’” 

- Ibram X. Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist
