#RaceMeToo: Welcome to a Parallel Universe
Sickened by the murder of George Floyd, institutions around the world have been quick self-certify their anti-racism. It’s easy to oppose the crassest forms of racism happening elsewhere; but much harder to see and address our own institutional and individual behaviours that perpetuate more subtle varieties of racism. Will we do the uncomfortable work of listening to racialized minorities, understanding the issues, and responding without rationalising or excusing?
