How to Be An Antiracist Ch. 3

Podcast Description

Power

Race: A power construct of collected or merged differences that lives socially.


I want to begin this episode with a warning: Reading this book, are any other, does not make you an Antiracist expert compared with those who have the lived experiences of racism’s impact.

Homework

1. Page 38: find 3 examples of it being a crime for non-whites to be themselves or empower themselves:

  • One from the past
  • One from the present
  • One in which technology is used to enable the racial crime of being non-white


2. Page 40: Do some research and find an example from the time that Gomes de Zurara’ lived from 1410- 1474 that challenge the assertion that “this Black race of people was lost, living ‘like beasts’ without any custom of reasonable beings”.


3. Page 43: list 5 ways racist idea are being used to justify racist policies and to redirect the blame for racial inequalities away from those policies and onto people [look beyond the obvious]. How is technology being used to facilitate racist policies?
