What’s race got to do with it?

Where does race come into our work as anti-violence workers and support workers? Why should we care about race?

Mainstream media and Canada’s ‘Multiculturalism’ policies tells us that we’re living in a ‘post-racial’ world; A world that is past the so-called race question. An alluring sentiment indeed, but one that is deeply flawed. Spreading the idea of a ‘post-racial world’ works to mask the realities of structural racism that continue to thrive in the fabrics of society.
