Moving the Race Conversation Forward: How the Media Covers Racism, and Other Barriers to Productive Racial Discourse, Pt. 1

January 21, 2014

This document is part 1 of 2. This report identifies and describes some of the key ways in which mainstream discourse in the United States unproductively approaches issues of race and racism. In this report, we present our expansive analysis of recent media coverage on race and racism (Section 2), and our description of Seven Harmful Racial Discourse Practices that occur not just in mainstream media, but in varied spaces where "race talk" takes place (Section 3). It also provides some everyday discourse recommendations applicable to everyone from racial and social justice advocates to media editors to leaders and members of religious groups to news consumers.

Moving the Race Conversation Forward: Racial Discourse Change in Practice - Pt. 2

January 21, 2014

This document is part 2 of 2. This report provides case studies of recent interventions and initiatives advanced by the racial justice field to disrupt and supplant unproductive mainstream discussions of race and racism. The cases include a campaign entitled "Drop The I-Word," launched in September 2010 by Race Forward itself (at the time still known as the Applied Research Center). This second report also provides lessons gleaned from these interventions and initiatives, perhaps most applicable to racial and social justice advocates, but also relevant to others who are eager to respond to the dominant frames and stories that negatively impact people of color, and/or to proactively advance values and narratives that will lead our society toward a racially equitable future. These lessons are accompanied by important considerations for organizations to bear in mind when selecting spokespersons for racial equity communications. And finally, we also provide recommendations for those in philanthropy curious about current needs and opportunities to support the development of framing expertise, skills-building and collaboration.
