  1. 1. Welcome To OurWelcome To Our CapstoneCapstone Project.Project. RACISM
  2. 2. Definition of Racism: • 1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others. • 2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination. • 3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races. • a.) Racism has existed throughout human history. It may be defined as the hatred of one person by another -- or the belief that another person is less than human -- because of skin color, language, customs, place of birth or any factor that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person. It has influenced wars, slavery, the formation of nations, and legal codes. • b.) The most notorious example of racism by the West has been slavery, particularly the enslavement of Africans in the New World (slavery itself dates back thousands of years). This enslavement was accomplished because of the racist belief that Black Africans were less fully human than white Europeans and their descendants.
  3. 3. Quotes on Racism: • “Lukewarm acceptance is more bewildering than outright rejection.” • I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. • (MLK)
  4. 4. Dennis Leary • Racism isn't born, folks, it's taught. I have a two-year-old son. You know what he hates? Naps! End of list.
  5. 5. William Faulkner • To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow.
  6. 6. Unknown Author • “Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color.” • “Racial superiority is a mere pigment of the imagination.”
  7. 7. Dave Chappelle • "Anybody ever been down south? So you guys know what I'm talking about. Now the racism down there is just perfect. It's stewed to a perfection. It's omfortable, it's out in the open. There are no secrets in Mississippi. Everybody knows the deal. Good morning • ““I st ill t hinkI st ill t hink people do havepeople do have racial hang-ups,racial hang-ups, but I t hink one ofbut I t hink one of t he reasons I cant he reasons I can j oke about it isj oke about it is people arepeople are shedding t hoseshedding t hose racial hat reds.”racial hat reds.”

  41. 41. 2.4 percent of the United States is multiracial Hawaii has the largest multiracial population. – 24.1 percent of its population. Alaska is second with 5.4 percent. The five least multiracial states are Mississippi, West Virginia, Maine, Alabama, and South Carolina. All have multiracial populations less than 1 percent
  42. 42. Census The 2000 census over 6.8 million Americans marked an identification with two or more races. The 2000 census was the first census to allow respondents to choose more than one race.
  43. 43. What does it mean? • The multiracial individual is a visible indication of our country’s move towards acceptance not just tolerance. • As we become more integrated as a society, discussions of race may become unnecessary. • Diversity is not only about race but experiencing various perspectives, values and the thoughts they bring with them.
  44. 44. Future projections • It is expected by 2050, the majority of the US population, nearly 75 million, will identify with more than one race. • Thirty years ago it was 1-100, today it is 1-20.
  45. 45. When they asked –Arnold Arnaff When they asked If I was Black or White or what. I said: I was Black and White and what difference did it make to them. and they said: did I have the answers to the math problems? and I had the answers.
  46. 46. Ways to combat racism. • Face our reluctance to discuss race. • Realize that sometimes it isn’t what we say it is what we do not say. • Let children lead the way. • Confront stereotyping when it occurs. • Don’t wait for Heritage Days and History months. • Beyond Tolerance: Expecting Acceptance.
