Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 6, 11:08 AM

There are instances of racism which do not even register as such they are so ingrained in behaviour and speech. This is problematic in a world where cultures are continuously coming together. John Dewey proposed School as a place where races, ethnicity, and cultures mingled with each other. This means teaching is leading in those ways and being aware of our behaviour and speech.

George Brandis' Racial Discrimination Act changes create the whitest piece of proposed legislation I've encountered

George Brandis' Racial Discrimination Act changes create the whitest piece of proposed legislation I've encountered | anti-racism framework | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about George Brandis’ now infamous comment this week that Australians “have the right to be bigots” is that it was so unremarkable. Sure, it’s a grating soundbite, but as a matter of substance it’s entirely obvious. Of course we have a right to be bigots. We always have.

Is My School Racist? | Teaching Tolerance | anti-racism framework | Scoop.it

Mica Pollock, editor of Everyday Antiracism: Getting Real About Race in School, calls on educators to develop an “everyday consciousness” about the relevance of race in schools. Be aware, ask questions and “keep inquiring,” says Pollock, who is the director of the Center for Research on Educational Equity, Assessment and Teaching Excellence at the University of California, San Diego.

 

Pollock offers four questions as a starting point for assessing and addressing institutional racism in a school setting:

Tess Kougi's curator insight, November 3, 2013 2:39 AM

This is an article written about segregation of black and whites in schools in America. Even though schools in Australia aren't as extreme as this with racism there's still important things to be learnt from this article. Main issues could be discussed in a humanities class, or any class for that matter.

Liberated by listening: How cross-cultural story-telling sets us all free

Liberated by listening: How cross-cultural story-telling sets us all free | anti-racism framework | Scoop.it

I grew up in the minority-majority city of Miami. The “dominant” culture consisted of several ethnic minority populations. The rarity of this became obvious to me when my white adoptive parents carted me across the county to small town Minnesota, where minorities, are well… actually a minority. It’s like that old adage: “How does a fish know when it’s wet?” Even though I’d always been a minority, so was everyone else. Because of this, my unique perspective felt normal.

Today in post-racial America: University of Alabama sororities won’t let black women pledge | anti-racism framework | Scoop.it

Roll Tide! Except if you happen to be a black woman. The University of Alabama’s student paper the Crimson White is reporting that at least four sororities at the school will not allow black students to pledge. The sororities Alpha Gamma Delta, Tri Delta, Chi Omega, and Pi Beta Phi all blocked two qualified black students from pledging this fall, and the school’s paper says it’s because of their skin color and alumni influence over the selection process.
