Understanding Racism


This paper is the first of three to focus on anti-Aboriginal racism in Canada, beginning with an exploration of the concept of race, its history and contexts, and continuing with a discussion of the various forms of racism within societies.

Forms of racism covered include: Epistemic racism, structural racism, relational racism, embodied racism, social exclusion, systemic racism, colour-blindedness.
