Part VI Where We Go Wrong

Slide 24

Where We Go Wrong Confusing the alleviation of destitution with the disposal of neediness. - Clothing and lodging the poor is essential, however it is not similar to with closure neediness.

Slide 25

Where We Go Wrong Trying to address neediness by “fixing” low-wage individuals. - We don’t fix bigotry by “fixing” People of Color, either!

Slide 26

Where We Go Wrong Confusing philanthropy with social change development. - Ending destitution (like prejudice) obliges systemic changes to a harsh system—we can\'t end neediness or bigotry without fighting that framework.

Slide 27

Where We Go Wrong Confusing philanthropy with social change development. - Ending destitution (like prejudice) obliges systemic changes to an abusive system—we can\'t end neediness or bigotry without engaging that framework.

Slide 28

Slide 29

Slide 30

Where We Go Wrong Studying so as to attempt to comprehend destitution needy individuals. - Poverty can be seen just by inquiring as to why destitution exists and to whose advantage neediness exists. (Would we be able to comprehend bigotry without comprehension frameworks of whiteness?)

Slide 31

Part VII Tenets of Race-Conscious Anti-Poverty Action

Slide 32

Tenets We can\'t battle prejudice or neediness without battling bigotry and destitution. Bigotry can be seen generally as financial misuse

Slide 33

Tenets Working class and poor white individuals regularly are associated to trust that common laborers and destitute People of Color, as opposed to an onerous monetary framework, are the wellspring of their hardships. Concentrating just on white benefit won’t work. Assist them with perceiving how they’re misused monetarily by the same force structure and how white benefit is their “compensation” for being the cushion.

Slide 34

Tenets We can\'t influence social change by utilizing the models that are utilized to mingle us into complicity. We must model a dismissal of shortfall belief system, of buyer society, of the myth of meritocracy.

Slide 35

Tenets Social equity obliges us to work with disappointed groups. Keep away from administration projects (or any projects) that don\'t happen as a team with disappointed groups. Keep in mind, the way to freedom is for individuals to choose for themselves their way to freedom.

Slide 36

Tenets We can\'t end mistreatment through social programming. Energies and assets put aside for hostile to bigotry and against destitution activities never ought to be spent on “celebrating diversity” or “learning about cultures” programs. Taco Night is fun, however it has nothing to do with prejudice, aside from, maybe, adding to it.
