Anti-Blackness infiltrates every structure and system in America and the world!
Anti-Blackness infiltrates every structure and system in America. To rectify anti-Blackness, it is imperative to understand and be able to identify the ways it manifests.
Many of us often hear the words “racism,” “white privilege,” and “intersectionality” when discussing racial justice. Yet “anti-Blackness” is almost never discussed in these conversations. What many people don’t realize is that anti-Blackness is the root of most oppression and racism in the United States and the world.
There’s also colorism where lighter skin is privileged over darker skin. This exists even among people of the same race or ethnicity. Non-Black communities have negative stereotypes about Black people, and distance themselves in order to maintain some level of perceived racial power.
We must change anti-Blackness unawareness and ignorance through conversation, DNA facts, and a true understanding of American and world history. Are you ready to confront and change anti-Blackness sentiments in your race?
We invite you to join us on Sunday, November 13, 2022, 3-5pm EST in a virtual conversation about anti-Blackness in this country and the world. Register free online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/112824362706.
