Why Anti-Racism?

What is anti-racism? According to Ibram X. Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist and director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, "the opposite of 'racist' isn't 'not racist', it is 'anti-racist.'" Anti-racism is an active choice. To be an antiracist, one must choose to actively participate in ways to work towards a more equitable society. Saying "I'm not racist" is a passive choice. Being an antiracist involves taking action and continuing to take action until real change happens.
