“What’s the problem with being ‘Not Racist’? it is a claim that signifies neutrality: ‘I am not a racist, but neither am I aggressively against racism’ But there is no neutrality in the racism struggle. … One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an antiracist. There is no in-between safe space of ‘not racist.’ The claim of ‘not racist’ neutrality is a mask for racism.” – Ibram X. Kendi I Author of How to be Antiracist
