See My Color: Why Racial Colorblindness is Unethical
This course fulfills Illinois licensure requirements for cultural competency CEUs.
For information about CEU validation for IL licensees only, please consult the attached material "For IL Licensees Only - CEU Validation Instructions" in the Materials tab.
This Southern District cultural competence course will help participants to identify and challenge both conscious and unconscious racial biases to facilitate ethical practices in the helping professions. "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." —Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr (8/28/1963). More than 50 years after Dr. King's speech, individuals continue to use his words to justify their claim of being racially colorblind. Racial colorblindness is modern day racism and denies the racial disparities that continue to exist in various systems, including healthcare, education, and the criminal justice system. In the helping profession, not only is it unrealistic to be racially colorblind, it is dangerous and does more harm than good. If you don't see my color, you can't see me. And if you can't see me how can you empathize with my racial experiences, accept my whole being, and validate my perspectives?
