Building a New Racial Justice Movement – COLORLINES

Creating a multiracial movement for justice requires more than slapping the word “new” in front of “civil rights movement.”

“…in the main, we don’t want to talk about race, much less about racism. Our societal silence makes room for inventive new forms of discrimination, while it blocks our efforts to change rules that disadvantage people of color. Unless we say what we mean, we cannot redefine how racism works or drive the debate toward equity.”
