Anti-Racist Resources: Home

This guide is designed to share anti-racist resources and expand anti-racism work within Highline College and our community.

Definitions

"In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist." -- Angela Y. Davis

"An antiracist is someone who is supporting an antiracist policy through their actions or expressing antiracist ideas. This includes the expression or ideas that racial groups are equals and do not need developing, and supporting policies that reduce racial inequality."

- Ibram X. Kendi, How to be an Antiracist

Racist: "One who is supporting a racist policy through their actions or interaction or expressing a racist idea."

- Ibram X. Kendi, How to be an Antiracist
