illegal - no human is illegal


alien - dated and dehumanizing


undocumented - dated. Instead use RPI "Registered Provisional Immigrant"


Hispanic - Proceeded with caution. Most "Hispanics" prefer "Latino"; unless they have no European heritage. For example, indigenous Mexicans, indigenous Central Americans and indigenous South Americans are not Latino; in which case one could use Hispanic - but the word Hispanic ignores their indigenous identity to the Americas; in which case you can use American Native or the scientific term Amerindian.


Colored - dated. should be "People of Color", not "colored people"

Running from my White-ness

Running from my White-ness | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

"What I learned in my grade school days was so sugary sweet that I graduated with the belief that America was the savior of the world and that Slavery was a blight caused by a few bad people wiped clean by the heroic Abraham Lincoln."

...

"When I got into college and began to take history and philosophy courses, I started to wake up. Some of the required books led me to read other books that opened my eyes to a deeper understanding of our history and the unfolding America. Beyond that was the enlightening accounts of human atrocities across the globe throughout history."

"...the way to a more united and equal America is by less separation and more conversation..."

Racism: America's Original Sin

Racism: America's Original Sin | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

The historical record of how white Europeans conquered North America by destroying the native population and how they then built their new nation's economy on the backs of kidnapped Africans who had been turned into chattel are facts that can hardly be denied. Yet to speak honestly of such historical facts is to be charged with being polemical or out of date. Why?

Move Over Climate Deniers, Here Come Racism Deniers

Conservative commentators claimed they'd welcome an honest discussion about the thorny issue in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. But within moments last week of President Obama offering up his personal reflection about the trial and how the killing of Trayvon Martin had been viewed within the African-American community, right-wing voices responded with almost feral anger and resentment.

Tess Kougi's curator insight, November 3, 2013 3:14 AM

This article discusses how blind people percieve race. It's a really interesting read, because it talks about some things that I've never even thought of. It includes research that has been done and is based on Ray Charles' life being blind and how he percieved race.

Donald Trump Does Not Comprehend Racism - Thinks 'Cracker' The Same As The N-Word

Donald Trump Does Not Comprehend Racism - Thinks 'Cracker' The Same As The N-Word | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

Without the whip in hand, a cracker becomes impotent, pointless. The use of the term becomes, in effect, a statement about someone who might take an oppressive role against a black… if he had a whip. A person who is on the other side of the racial divide.
