Where do you see "small" acts of racism?
In this day and age, “large” acts of racism are considered horribly offensive and the people who commit them are condemned. But about the “small” acts? I was in Victoria’s Secret the other day and I bought a bra in a color labeled “nude.” Seeing as I am white, it certainly is the same color as my skin and I do appear nude when wearing it. However, there weren’t bras in varying shades of brown, which are also “nude” for other women who are not white.
I believe that one of the ways we can illuminate and eliminate racism is by recognizing the smallest things that are taken for granted but are actually racist. Another example: Bandaids. Unless they are brightly colored, they come in a light tan color, meant to blend in on someone’s skin. However, they do not blend in on a black or hispanic person’s skin. What other examples can you point out of “small” racism?
