A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Unconscious Racism

leave a comment »

Are you a racist? You probably don’t think so and might even be offended at the suggestion that you are but how can you be sure? Unconscious racism arises out of viewpoints, fears and stereotypes of which people are unaware. We don’t have direct and immediate control over many deep feelings we have acquired over a lifetime of development. It’s not our fault that they exist and it is good that we struggle against them. What are some unconscious racist thought/ideas that you recognize about yourself?
