New Library Guide: Racism in Medicine Resources
Current events have brought to light the need for more than simply being non-racist. Not being racist means you don't hold a belief that people are less than because of race or ethnicity. Anti-racism is the practice of actively opposing racism and promoting racial tolerance. Being not racist is not enough to correct the injustices done because it does not actively try to fix systemic racism as a whole. Like racism and systemic racism, the difference between non-racist and anti-racist is belief versus action. Believing that racism is wrong is not the same as addressing the wrongs, which is why experts in the field push for anti-racism over non-racism.
