3 Ways to Respond when Family and Friends Say Racist Things

Clear communication is very important. This is not only important for dealing with those who make racist remarks but also those who fat shame, are homophobic, sexist, age-ist, etc.

Call it out. Be clear.

I was completely caught off guard recently when a friend of mine sent me a photo with a homophobic joke. At first, I ignored it, but that person didn't take the "hint" and sent another meme.

Don't let it slide.
