Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions we get asked:

Why should I try to solve the race problem?

Racism started as an ideology constructed in the minds of people. It transformed from an idea to a practice in order to subjugate and exploit people for material gain, wealth, and power. Racism has a direct negative impact on non-white communities.  We should be attempting to make the world a better place. Confronting the problem at the epicenter of many other major issues, it is time to think about how to solve it. Anything put together by people, can be taken apart by people.
