Valiosos recursos a su alcance sobre educación anti-racista

Prof. Beatriz Arroyo Torres, MBA-TMGT

Para Prensa sin censura

Podemos combatir el racismo educándonos, motivando y concientizando sobre el respeto al prójimo y sobre los derechos de igualdad. Todos aspiramos a vivir en armonía y solidarizarnos con la comunidad que hoy reclama justicia social por el asesinato de George Floyd.

De ninguna manera podemos permitir los atropellos, prejuicios, discrimen contra las personas por su color de piel.

Para educarnos tenemos que leer, hablar y corregir a otros cuando se expresan con burla, epítetos y expresiones despectivas. Erradicar el racismo exige acabar con el sistema que lo mantiene. Hemos visto que han surgido protestas en diferentes estados de EU y países como Alemania, Nueva Zelandia, España, Francia y otros que seguirán hasta que se desista del abuso de poder hacia cualquier persona.

La Universidad, ente educador, tiene como propósito enseñar a pensar y resolver problemas; desarrollar destrezas y habilidades importantes para desenvolver al estudiante en cualquier ámbito; crear sentido de pertenencia; tomar decisiones justas; valorar las oportunidades y autoanalizarlas constantemente; aplicar la ética profesional; ampliar la cultura en general mediante la historia, sociedad y cual podría ser la realidad futura, entre otras.

Dos catedráticas, Dra. Irma Sandoval Arocho y Prof. Yessenia Pérez Rodríguez, Departamento de Bachillerato de Trabajo Social, Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico, Recinto de Aguadilla, en su misión de aportar en la educación anti-racista, recopilaron información valiosa sobre artículos publicados en periódicos, libros, podscast, películas y otros medios que son de gran relevancia para educarnos y actuar conscientes mediante un recto pensamiento.

Les invito a que saquen un momento para leer la información y pueden compartirla con sus familiares, amigos y comunidad.
