Know Your Enemy: The Evolution of Racism
This course is designed for those that recognize their genuine concern and ambition to solve the race problem doesn’t match the level of historical knowledge needed to do so. This course is designed to eradicate and alleviate the feeling of helplessness when it comes to thinking, speaking and acting in a counter-racist manner. Beginning in 1441 and ending in the 21st century we dive into the social construction and geo-political ideologies that have shaped our present racial dilemma.
Because of racism we deal with:
Microaggressions and passive aggression
Not knowing how to “play the game” corporately/socially without suppressing ourselves
Often feeling “emotionally hijacked” in conversations about race
After gaining a thorough understanding of the race problem and getting equipped with tools to counteract racist thought, speech, and action:
Increased confidence and lower anxiety in corporate and interpersonal settings.
Increased awareness to no longer think, speak and act in a manner that reinforces racist ideology.
Eliminate the self-imposed psychological bondage of code-switching and assimilation (for non-white people)
Produce justice in your life and positively affect your sphere of influence with applied knowledge.
