So the next time you’re on vacation or being served by a person with less than perfect English, check your attitude.

Let me begin by saying that a ‘non-racist’ classroom is not the same as an actively anti-racist classroom. Since biases are often inherent/unconscious, a ‘non-racist’ classroom is often unfeasible. It is possible, however, to actively combat racism on a daily basis.
