Je signe parce que c'est une injustice envers la professeur et que ce monsieur Attaran est un raciste.

I know and understand that one of the major roots of racism is lack of knowledge, and experience, also from lack of proximity. If we don’t have proximity with someone no matter the gender, colour, or background any stereotypes types made about that person will become our perspective of the person. I know how important it is to learn about one another.

This is a necessary first step. Colonial white supremacist programming in course content must be radically reviewed and rewritten as well.

I feel like it's important to learn and would probably help people of colour if everyone was more educated on the subject, I think it should also be free.
