What is Antiracism?

ANTIRACISM MEANS STOP KILLING BLACK PEOPLE!

From access to quality healthcare to clean water and air; From economic mobility to access to capital, credit, and wealth; From student graduation and retention rates to affordable housing options Black, Indigenous, and People of Color remain at the bottom of vital quality of life measurements.  Not to mention, the contiued obsession of white supremacy to publicly kill Black bodies. 

(Can you live each day without dehumanizing BIPOC?)

Dr. Ibram X. Kendi reminds us in his book How to Be an Antiracist “One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an antiracist. There is no in-between safe space of “not racist.” The claim of “not racist” neutrality is a mask for racism.”

END RACISM RIGHT NOW
