Racism is not about hate, it is about domination and control. Our history is rooted in the domination and control of people of color for the invidious purpose of exploiting them as economic, social and political resources. Hate is merely a powerful tool with which to manipulate people.
Fighting Racism is about dismantling the structures that created and continue to sustain the deeply-rooted control that pervades every facet of our culture. Three of the cornerstones of racism have been denial of effective access to the political process, denial of an effective quality public education, and denial of meaningful economic opportunity.
