Awareness and Transformation: What about reverse racism?
Episode 4: What about reverse racism? (August 2020)
- In conversations about race, it’s not unusual for someone to ask “What about reverse racism?” They point to affirmative action, “minorities encouraged to apply” statements, and other examples of situations where being something other than a white male seems to give you an advantage. So, is there such a thing as reverse racism? In this episode, Ralph and Brian talk about this question specifically and touch on a number of other topics including bias, power, access to systems, and more.
In response to the killing of George Floyd, staff members Ralph Lowe (Director of Justice Ministries) and Brian Wallace (Associate Minister) started a series of conversations entitled Awareness and Transformation: Conversations about Life, Race, and Faith. You can view the episodes on YouTube and copies of the videos are available for download for use and inclusion in online worship and other church programs.
