What can individual people do to help eliminate racism?


How can individual Americans fight against racism? What ideas do you have to bridge the gap between races? I'm not thinking about political solutions or movements but rather what each individual person can do. How can we work to create a less divided society?

    You are right that the question is aimed at Americans because the subject is in the news currently, but my husband has French relatives and, through them, I know this question is very much relevant in other countries.

    Terrific answers Craig. I teach many first time college students who are also minorities. My parents weren't minorities, but they were very, very poor. I want to help my students to succeed so their children won't have it as hard (just like me).

    I could not agree with you any more than I do! So many people have the resources and/or opportunities to learn about or visit with other cultures but they refuse to even try.

    Clivewilliams--I really like your last sentence. I think that we all have faults and sometimes say insensitive things or don't know what to say, but we can all learn, grow, be humble, ask forgiveness and seek to be kind in all situations.
