Racism is a complex phenomenon rooted in the history of modern states and the histories of colonialism and slavery. However, racism is often thought of as individual prejudice, an approach which sees racism as a psychological state of mind rather than a political phenomenon. Everyday racism can be seen in acts of violence, exploitation, discrimination, etc. – but it is not always overt. Indeed, much racism is covert, embedded in institutions such as the education system, healthcare, the police, etc. How can we identify racism in everyday situations? What tools of understanding do we need to identify a situation as racist or non-racist? In which ways does everyday racism affect the health and well-being of racialised people? What do we need to know about racism in order to address our prejudices?
