Reading #9: SYSTEMIC RACISM1 Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility (LEAD 3030) This final ‘reading-plus-video’ sets the basis for a discussion about systemic racism, relevant both at the societal and organizational level. Written responses are due one-hour prior to class, Thursday, Dec 2. 1. Please watch (at least) one episode of the “First Contact” series that introduces six Canadians—who have stereotypical views about Indigenous issues—to Indigenous people and communities across Canada to hear firsthand stories and experiences. The series has two seasons, with three episodes in each season. Choose one of the episodes to view here: https://www.tvo.org/video/documentaries/first-contact-ep-1 (if you prefer, feel free to watch an episode from season two). In Break Out rooms everyone will be asked to briefly describe the episode they watched, what they learned, and how it affected them. Question 1: What did you learn from and think about the episode you watched? Which of the people in the video could you relate to the most? Which character frustrated you the most, and why? Were you tempted to watch additional episodes? (This UM video with Brenda LaRose, founder of Higgins Executive Search, may also be of interest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs1b1-c7gcM) 2. Read and reflect upon the following thoughts about White privilege, written by a former LEAD 3030 student (used with permission): “White privilege is famously described by Peggy Mcintosh2 as an invisible package of unearned assets that White people carry unknowingly throughout their lives. As a child, I understood that I was more fortunate because of the colour of my skin. I understood that my life was easier, although I wasn’t aware to what extent. In school we were never taught about systemic racism. Systemic racism, or institutional racism, is racism that is embedded in our society through policies and laws. Systemic racism makes it more difficult for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of colour) to get a job, a loan, or housing because of their skin colour and heritage. Systemic racism leads to implicit bias which allows people to assume that race doesn’t play a role in decision-making, that the BIPOC person in question must have actually done something wrong to put them in that position. My Whiteness is reaffirmed on a daily basis in multiple ways at the expense of people of colour. If I need medical or legal assistance, the colour of my skin won’t work against me. If I am pulled over by the police, I don’t have to worry about the situation escalating because of my skin colour. As an adolescent, I was under the impression that as long as I wasn’t explicitly racist in any way, I was doing my part. Through the process of educating myself, I have come to understand that there is a significant different between not being racist and being anti-racist. The key is for White people to understand and recognize our privilege and then use it to actively speak up for BIPOC individuals and communities to create awareness and systemic change. Acknowledging White privilege is meant to feel uncomfortable. Discomfort creates room for growth and change. Racism on the other hand, stems from ignorance and fear. We fear what we don’t know. Ignorance breeds fear, which can eventually turn into hatred and then destruction. It is crucial that we educate ourselves on Western history as well as on the customs and traditions of other cultures so that history doesn’t repeat itself and people of different ethnic backgrounds don’t seem so foreign. Question 2: What do you think about the idea of White privilege? Does reflecting on it influence what sort of manager you want to become?
