Here is a sample of the types of content links provided each month:
- Black Workers Must be Twice as Good
New research from the National Bureau of Economic Research shows that Black workers receive extra scrutiny from bosses, which can lead to worse performance reviews, lower wages, and even job loss.
Heartbreaking research study showing that whites associate Black faces as young as 5 with violence and criminality.
- The difference between being non-racist and anti-racist
Fabulous short video that perfectly explains why anti-racism is essential. Great for those who want to do good, but haven’t been fully immersed in anti-racism analysis.
- Watch this 5 minute video of Joy DeGruy for an expert explanation of the definition of racism as “prejudice plus power”. This is a wonderful example of how to engage that conversation or become convinced of its value!
- What it looks like when a bank goes out of its way to avoid minorities
This article is about contemporary structural racism via redlining. It highlights an example of what white folks miss if we’re trying to be ‘colorblind’ and not looking for racism.
