Changing Popular Discourse


Resources in this section provide examples of strategies people have used to directly address cultural racism – that is, the representations, messages and stories that help create and maintain positive and negative assumptions about racial and ethnic groups, and the role of structural racism and privilege in creating and maintaining racial inequities. A current example is the work by the Applied Research Center (ARC) and others to eliminate the term “illegal alien” from mainstream media reporting on immigration reform. See also the section on Cultural Racism for related conceptual information.
