Racism is a belief and practice that discriminates against people of a different race. Capitalism is an economic system that operates to make profit. How are they tied together?
In his new book, “How to Be an Antiracist,” author and historian Ibram X. Kendi looks at the unique relationship between racism and capitalism, which he writes, “will ultimately die together.”
On Monday’s MPR News with Kerri Miller, Kendi talked about his belief that it’s not enough to be against racism – that purposeful antiracism is needed.
