Welcome to Recognizing Systemic Racism

Recognizing Systemic Racism is a blog describing the study of systemic racism in the various domains in our society including health, education, criminal justice, social welfare, citizen participation, culure and sports, housing, employment, rfeligion and social relations. The group is intended to facilitate sociological study and while prejudice and discrimination may be discussed, the major emphasis is how values and practices get embedded in social dynamics in society at what are usually unconscious patterns of behavior.

The blog will review key ideas in various texts and articles and the articles will be informative, factual, and hopefully, enlightening.

The first book to be discussed is Robin Diangelo's White Fragility. Please subscribe and particpate by entering comments and/or joining the discussion group below
