Had a discussion with a friend about how to make her boss less racist. Her boss plans to demote the 2 non-white or 'ethnic' posts by adding another tier of management above them (and no one else). He also plans to cut funding from 'ethnic' events so he can concentrate on attracting 'more mainstream' theatre. We both know he would be horrified if it was pointed out that his decisions reinforced, if not created, a kind of white supremacism.

All I could suggest was laughing at him, saying, ha ha, you know what kind of racist you look like...? Because he probably doesn't see it like that.
