The Changing Nature of Racism

I wrote about the changing nature of racism from overt to covert, here. Enjoy the read…

Here is a confronting example: while race-based legislation may be gone, Aboriginal children are being removed from their families at a higher rate than ever before. While the majority of Australians condemn overt racism, Aboriginal children are quietly being taken away from their parents under policy that allows racism to thrive at an institutional level. Raising awareness about the Stolen Generation has mostly worked, but this education and dialogue has not led to the structural change needed to stop Aboriginal children from being taken from their families.
