Admit your own racism

Discussions about racism often make folx feel uncomfortable. It can bring feelings of guilt and defense. For a long time, BIPOC folx has been implicitly expected to suffer from racism and its responsibility to keep white peers from feeling uncomfortable by talking about its impact on the community.

As people become more aware of health inequality, police brutality, etc., people are more and more willing to face this topic, including acknowledging your own racism.

Understand the insidiousness of racism

Fortunately, for BIPOC folx, recent progress has been made in understanding the insidious nature of racism. Although it no longer stolen land at the expense of indigenous communities and enslaving Black folx as in the past few centuries, racism continues to hurt BIPOC folx and its system maintains the status quo.

In a 2013 journal article, color-blind racial ideology (CBRI) was deconstructed as avoiding color, because racial differences were minimized, power escaped, and narratives of equal opportunities spread.

Although this has long been the norm in the United States, CBRI is an example of how racism has evolved into progress that denies racial injustice.

According to a 2019 report, the gap between rich and poor between black and white households increased from approximately US$100,000 in 1992 to US$154,000 in 2016, so the influence of generational wealth accumulated by stolen black labor still exists.

Unfortunately, despite these great advantages, the white fox often promotes narratives of self-reliance, as if these harsh racial inequalities are not based on a highly manipulated system.

The inevitability of American racism

When you gradually understand how a country based on racism is standardized and socialized, you will be able to recognize your racism better.

If you are a member of the dominant group (ie white fox), you will continue to benefit from racism, and BIPOC colleagues may fight internalized racism due to their abuse.

It is clear from a 2018 journal article that even if an academic institution studies racism, it can continue, just like the case of the Washington University School of Public Health.

In this way, despite how long it took many organizations to admit racism, this behavior alone does not improve the life of BIPOC folx.

Although admitting that their racism is challenging, BIPOC folx needs their white peers to start dismantling the inherent white supremacy system from education to healthcare.

Unfortunately, myths like reverse racism have long been used to ignite, silence, and destroy communities of color in order to maintain white supremacy.

Just as heterosexual men in a patriarchal society are not harmed by sexism, Arctic Fox has not experienced any form of racism, because both are examples of dominant groups that benefit from these systems.

Beyond acknowledging one’s racism

In a journal article in 2020, structural racism was described as how the U.S. discriminatory policy system uses red lines and other practices to reinforce racial-based privileges and oppressive experiences. Banks will refuse to provide Black folx, which is mainly a white community. Mortgage.

Although this may be an example of how racism persists, these houses in white areas sell for much higher prices, and these houses are mostly inherited by future generations, thus widening the racial gap between rich and poor over time.

If you can understand the long-term consequences of the red line, you may be able to understand how a similar model applies to industries other than banking. Given their inability to obtain mortgages there, many black families often continue to live in predominantly non-white areas.

Over time, one of the main effects of the red line is the widening racial gap between rich and poor, which is mainly due to the fact that white families inherit houses as intergenerational wealth.

For example, in terms of education, racism is obviously adult-oriented. A 2017 study showed that from the age of 5, black girls are considered less innocent than white girls.

Such racist models continue to be proven in research in the fields of healthcare, publishing, and employment. Once you understand the pervasiveness of racism, you can take the necessary steps to challenge it.

Anti-Black Racism from Folx Non-Black

Although you may have begun to think that BIPOC folx cannot be racist, the non-black and colored people (NBPOC) folx continues to continue anti-black racism.

Unfortunately, anti-blacks are a reality in the NBPOC community, and at least as much work needs to be done to challenge prejudice, just as the white fox needs to ask about their racist beliefs about others.

Although this investment in change may be uncomfortable, it is necessary to ensure that Black folx gets the fair results they have been fighting for through the civil rights movement since the era of slavery.

A 2016 journal article stated, “If the oppressive systems are all interconnected, and none of us can be liberated until all of us are free, then caste, race, anti-blacks, and aboriginals must all be taken into consideration. Understand the situational collusion of South Asians here and confirm that our resistance narrative does not depend on other forms of violence.”

In other words, by understanding your complicity with privileged white foxes and systems close to whites, you can break the problematic status quo.

Although not universal, researchers are also studying how psychotherapy can help folx solve racism and prejudice.

Very good sentence

Although you may not have considered racism when you grow up, it is necessary to face your own racism in order to survive a group that has been threatened by white supremacy.

Especially NBPOC and White folx should think critically about how to challenge the anti-black industry.Although Black folx may also benefit from unraveling their internalized racism, this work usually has no effect compared to the negative behavior of professionals with this prejudice in authority positions in the United States.

If racism does not have such a daily negative impact on the life of BIPOC folx, then if you benefit from it, there is no need to face your beliefs.

Unfortunately, the disproportionate health results and the reality of the police being killed clearly show why this work is necessary. For a long time, Baihu’s comfort has been at the cost of the results of BIPOC, but hope that now there is greater will to eliminate racism.
