#HackingRacism focuses on disrupting status quo thinking, ferreting out how it reinforces & replicates resulting in systemic, institutional & structural racism. When people are purposely gathered to focus on these factors, they can, with increased facility, readily identify and examine the various forms of racism occuring in their everyday lives and at large in the general society.
