Taking the knee” against racism is not working and much more is needed to be done to reduce racism in society
Taking the knee has now become a popular tool in society to attempt to combat racism. Yet, despite the widespread uptake of this among many people across the world, racism is continuing to occur at an alarming rate. This study attempts to examine and analyze the many reasons for this, looking at the evidence of racism in societies, movements and initiatives currently in place to fight racism, how to keep movements alive, and what more could be done to combat racism. Reform to the criminal justice system, including better educating police offers, and educating society better on a whole about racism would be a much more effective way to combat racism than a token gesture like taking the knee.
