Racism, the Two Way Street?

Online event

A brief description from a gentleman who posted about this online. "I honestly believe that racism and prejudice has become worse in the last couple of decades because it has become a two-way street. Ethnic “minorities” have pre-judged whites just as whites pre-judge them. Can’t we move on. I have met so many wonderful persons of diverse backgrounds and races …. and yes, in some cases because of my prejudice, I was surprised at what I found. It’s hard, but I’m trying to not pre-judge." So is racism a two-way street? Who are these ethnic minorities? Would they be anyone who is not "White"? Or perhaps Asians don't have to deal with this or are not included. Are Latinos? There are too many questions because the language we use is very vague. We don't define terms or try to make sure we are being clearly understood. In this meetup, we will start to discuss concepts like "race", "culture", discrimination/bigotry and actual racism. Please come with your working definitions!!! Let's talk about how we view these concepts and why our definitions differ. Again, the point is to be understood in terms of who we define these concepts and how we have been socialized. We will be joining members of the Racial/Cultural Discussions group. https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Racial-Cultural-Discussions/ https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83987156431
