fighting subtle racism

Q: how does one begin to confront someone regarding their suspected implicit racism, especially if that someone is one's professor, extra-especially if one is at the WASPy institution known as miami u?

A: very carefully...

or not at all.

suffering silence,

Hi Steph,

I hate racism and that smarmy looks that people give when confronted with something outside their comfort box.

I am sorry you are suffering in silence.

she/he obviously abusing their authoritay. if you are forward, it could hurt things like marks, the future, ect. so how to not be TOO forward is the riddle but at the same time being non-confrontational allows shat to go on to the next victim.

some i know would say form solidarity with antiracists. personally, i criticise having an agenda blindly as war always begins at home... but it is something to consider - if not to find from other antiracists if the person in question is under any cloud from prior history (your AMUNITION of sorts /-: ) and bcos it is love in face of hate.

can i help?,

p.s. you are beautiful stephanie!
