Normalization And Fear Of Racism Analysis

747 Words 3 Pages
I have had many fortunate experiences in my youth and have been exposed to diversity throughout my life. I am therefore, rather ashamed of the members of my race that are incredibly ignorant to racism. Racism is prevalent in modern Canadian society and creates many barriers for minorities. Whites often fail to recognize and/or choose to ignore these barriers. There are also members of society that fear what is not familiar to them. I too am guilty for critically thinking about a response to someone of a different race for fear of being politically incorrect or disrespectful. Many of these behaviours are simply attributed to how one was raised and the ideals of their family or biases we may not realize we possess. It is incredibly important for individuals to educate themselves so that they may embrace diversity and allow an increased sense of comfort for all individuals involved in a group setting.
