Take Action

Imbram Kendi states, "One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an antiracist." This rings true in a country that still upholds racism in all of its structures and institutions. An attitude often seen in Oklahoma is that one is not racist if they do not want to commit hate crimes. This viewpoint fails to address all of the ways a person can contribute to upholding racism in indirect, normalized, or subtle ways while going through one's day. The impact of one's actions can be racist even if the intentions are not. Expanding your point of view through education, forming respectful relationships, and supporting other communities in your city is important in fighting the deep-seeded racism in this country.
