Looking ahead: COMBATING RACISM: Next week it will still be hard to be Black! African Americans want white people to help end systemic racism but are too often shunned when they address race issues. Numerous Blacks believe that whites embody white privilege and/or anti-Black prejudice; disregard the racist sins of the past; eschew constructive racialized discussion; ignore African American grievances, and refuse to challenge institutionalized racism. While some might believe such beliefs derive from a culture of victimization and is equivalent to holding all whites responsible for the sins of their fathers, I identify with these suspicions and believe that we all have a responsibility to combat the disease that is racism.
