What is invisible racism?
When we talk about invisible racism we refer to the harmful behaviours which are considered normal and accepted by the society. The line that draws between what we all know by racism and what the invisible racism is, is a line of tolerance. Some examples what invisible racism could be are the telling racist jokes, or avoiding the contact with people coming from different ethnic group, by simply going in the other side of the street, or deciding not to date a person with is not white. Those behaviours, although not considered by many harmful, lead to exclusion, anxiety, and influences the persons well being.
