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

you said, “Racism is complex in scope because it is both a mental illness and a value. In other words, it is a valued, sheltered, and protected mental illness.”

if it’s a protected mental illness, then should we put all racist people in hospital? and since it’s a mental illness, then how can we blame them for being racist? we don’t blame those who has depression for being depress. then how can we blame the racist being racist if it’s a mental illness?
