What sector do you work in? The workplace can be a real battleground for rasicm, my most recent example...
Colleague: I'm not racist when I lived in Africa I really got on with my 'garden boy'.
Me: That's great but was he actually a young boy or was he an adult?
Here are a couple of links to get the ball rolling, hope that others can chime in with some links.
Short films on rasicm in the workplace
Show rasicm the red card
Reposting - check your prejudice - cyclist
Probably another repost Akala - everyday rasicm
Honestly anything that can stimulate the discourse would help IMO.
Thanks, I'll have a look at these. What I need is something to jog the minds of a room full of predominantly white doctors. They're used to being sceptical about everything they're told and to being right about things, so the presentation preferably needs to be fairly sciency and from a source they can grasp, to get them on board. For example there was an animated video about unconscious bias by the royal society which would have been perfect except it didn't go into race specifically and was a bit short.
Yes I saw that one also, I'll ask my brother he is an A&E doctor, understand what you mean about ingrained scepticism.
This video below is also is also from Create not hate and both were created by 17-year-old Emmanuel Areoye. Could be used to further illustrate your points.
My brother says nothing comes immediately to mind but did share this.
'There is a group in London that have created a resource about rashes in children with darker skin tones. Most textbooks use white skin pictures which could lead to people not recognising rashes in darker skin people.'
Not really what you were looking for but interesting all the same. I'll let you know if he thinks of any other resources.
