Now do some more research. Systemic racism is difficult to find “actions” for, because educating yourself—which will help support people doing the work on the ground—is the best and most useful thing you can do. Here are some additional resources:
- The Fire Next Time
- White Supremacy and Racism in the Post-Civil Rights Era
- Why are all the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria
- Your Own Intuition, by YOU. In the age of information saturation and who-do-you-trust, your best barometer of authenticity is usually your own senses.

FB STATUS: I will defend the rights of people of color to have access to education, jobs, housing and other economic opportunities. The United States still struggles with our history of racism. We have made progress but not enough. First we listen, then we learn, finally we fight. #thisismyoath
