How America Spreads the Disease that is Racism by not Confronting Racist Family Members and Friends
April Harter, LCSW

Her definition of mental illness is ripped word for word (and without citation) from the American Psychiatric Association website. If you read a little further, it also says “Mental illness does not discriminate; it can affect anyone regardless of your age, gender, income, social status, race/ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, background or other aspect of cultural identity.” So her “Racism Scale,” which defines racism exclusively as a white phenomenon contradicts her own source. In other words, she selectively uses bits of science to advance an ideological agenda. She belongs with Mike Pence, electrocuting confused teenagers to save them from the “original sin” of being born the wrong way.
