Maybe you've been keeping up with St. Andrew's Racism Response Team (RRT). A great deal of work has been done with that group (along with other such endeavors), having completed a weeks-long formation program called Sacred Ground to now formulating a mission statement and goals, to wit: We strive to continually deepen our understanding of racism and social injustice in order to effect positive change in our community.
- Dehumanization: Basically asserting that another (individual or group) is of less value as a human being because of who they are, especially as the assertion is expressed through various social structures and systems.
- Disproportionality: The impact of systemic racism disproportionally affects those who are asserted to be of less value relative to other groups (White, in particular).
- Denial: Asserting that there is no systemic racism (by which the very systemic nature of racism is perpetuated).
