Race, Ethnicity, and Indigeneity
The idea that human beings belong to different “races” is not true in a genetic sense. However, groups defined as white consistently experience more advantages than groups defined as not white. The long-term effects can be seen at every level of society, including the distribution of resources, mythologies that are embedded in pop culture, and beauty norms. Resources in this section provide information about three core concepts related to the categorization of people into groups: race, ethnicity, and indigeneity.
“If you live in this system of white supremacy, you are either fighting the system or you are complicit. There is no neutrality to be had towards systems of injustice, it is not something you can just opt out of.”
