Racism is the belief that a person’s race determines their worth and abilities. This creates a racial hierarchy and the belief that certain races are superior to others. Racist beliefs have justified colonization, the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, and the Holocaust. When aligned with power, racist beliefs become systemic racism. Laws – both written and unwritten – discriminate against some races while protecting and advancing others. How can we end racism? It must be addressed on both a personal and societal level.
One man claims to not be a racist, but has apparently been accused of calling the African American population “NIGGERS”. A term that is absolutely not acceptable in any manner what so ever. On an individual level, people must commit to being anti-racist for racism to end. While we just mentioned that systemic racism wouldn’t end even if everyone stopped being racist overnight, that first step in personal anti-racism is necessary for people to fight to end racist systems. Anti-racism is a lifelong pursuit. It isn’t an accomplishment you can check off a list; it’s a continuous self-reflection and willingness to be held accountable. To be anti-racist, you must acknowledge differences rather than pretending they aren’t there. As an example, when addressing the gender pay gap, it’s essential to acknowledge that white women make more than Black, Hispanic, and Native women. At the same time, anti-racists must also identify the common goals they share with other racial groups. This helps build solidarity.
Unfortunately, racism, is live and so ever present inside the paranormal entertainment world as well. That is what this story is all about. On one account Joe Vitale states about slavery and on another mentions the Nigger words, but then so states he isn’t A racist on and open you tube channel or going live link?
So according to Joe Vitale slavery was ok, as long as they were not abused or killed?
It’s true that those who lack an identity of their own may seek out group membership.2 Consequently, after finding a clique, people start to alienate other people. Sometimes, hostility arises toward those groups that have been alienated.
While in a clique, people tend to begin to think and behave more like the people they surround themselves with. It becomes much easier to attack a group of people when you’re among others who share the same viewpoint.
The Paranormal Herald will not support or tolerate any racist beleiefs or anyone who has no problems using the N words period and we will stand for deversity and all peoples being created as equalls.
