A person who is from a minority, marginalised or historically oppressed group and calls out instances of racism or other forms of discrimination needs courage to face the consequences. The offender, usually socially more powerful, might double down, or directly or indirectly push back. How does one point out instances of overt and subtle discrimination in a way that is effective? Can it be done in a way that makes the other person introspect rather than become defensive? What might the consequences be? This session looks at answers to such questions, based on the author’s personal experiences and observations of the society around her.
