Canada’s Military Taught Racism Is Not Believing in Equity

The Everchanging Politicization of the Word Racism

The Canadian military now defines racism as anybody who “believes in equality but not [Marxist] equity and anybody who denies “unconscious bias and refuses to engage in self-reflection and education.”

The science is settled, and you may not have a different opinion. Racism is anything that rejects the leftist definitions.

The military is the perfect place to indoctrinate into CRT.

Racism or allyship?

Understanding the difference between racism, allyship and anti-racism can help Defence Team members recognize and challenge behaviours and practices that reinforce systemic racism and racial discrimination.

Racism

People who are racist:

  • Believe there are inherent significant biological differences across the human spectrum (for example, beliefs of genetic superiority)
  • Inflict harm or wish harm to members of racialized groups or do not work to reduce harm to racialized persons
  • Do not believe in equality of all persons or believe in equality but not equity (for example, do not support reconciliation efforts)
  • Do not believe that racism exists or believe that racism is warranted or justified
  • Deny the existence of unconscious bias and refuse to engage in self-reflection and education to address their own biases and racist beliefs

Ally

People who are allies:

  • Align themselves to racialized persons and demonstrate empathy towards the challenges racialized persons face
  • Take active steps to understand their own unconscious and conscious biases
  • Actively learn about and celebrate cultures other than their own and actively learn about racism in Canada and its continued impacts
  • Use their voice to amplify the voices of others and make space at the table for racialized voices
  • Call out racial discrimination, bias, bigotry and micro-aggressions when they see it

Anti-racism

People who are anti-racists:

  • Use their power and privilege to advance the socio-economic status of racialized persons, and actively work to combat and eliminate racial discrimination
  • Take measured and specific steps to ensure marginalized persons feel like they fully belong in the economy and society and its institutions (for example, schools, communities, workplaces, places of worship)
  • Work to dismantle systems that were not designed for diverse peoples and which results in their differential treatment
  • Create and implement equity granting measures to racialized groups to address equity gaps and achieve equality

Common anti-racism terminology

Understand the definitions of terms used when discussing anti-racism.

Anti-racism

Is the active process of identifying and eliminating racism by changing systems, organizational structures, policies and practices and attitudes, so that power is redistributed and shared equitably.

Privilege

Unearned power, benefits, advantages, access and/or opportunities based on membership in a dominant group.

Race

A socially-constructed identity based on geographic, historical, political, economic, social and cultural factors, as well as physical traits. Race is not intrinsic to human beings, but rather an identity created to establish meaning in a social/economic context.

Racism

Any individual action, or institutional practice which treats people differently because of their colour or ethnicity. This distinction is often used to justify discrimination.

Systemic racism

Also known as institutional racism, refers to the ways that whiteness and white superiority become embedded in policies and processes of an institution, resulting in a system that advantages white people and disadvantages Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC)/IBPOC.

White fragility

A state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable (for white people), triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as fear, guilt and anger and behaviours such as argumentation or silence. These behaviours, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium.
