These include: being able to empathize with one another being sure of one’s own identity understanding differences in people’s culture and customs actively challenging discriminatory attitudes. Why do people act in racist and discriminatory ways? Combating racism Ultimately, racism arises from an ignorance of other people’s differences. Often this ignorance stems from a learned set of values, perhaps from family, friends or society.
