The authors contend that instructors sometimes enable a racist climate in their classrooms. They can avoid a racist atmosphere by recognizing their implicit biases and racial illiteracy, quit thinking that all Black males are illiterate, stop expecting a Latina to speak for all of her compatriots, stop thinking that all Asians are the same, be cognizant of the looming stereotype threats, integrate diverse cultures into the curriculum, and implement other proactive measures to counter racism. They encourage faculty to realize that they may play a role in perpetuating racial inequities.
