Racism in Canada
On reading Hier and Bolaria’s book “Race And Racism In 21st-Century Canada:
Continuity, Complexity, And Change”, I realized that Canada is one of the countries that exhibit
high rates of racial intolerance, prejudice, and discrimination. The findings exposed in this book
are a telling testament of a divisive society on the brink of social failure. This paper is, therefore,
focused on having a closer look at racism in this North American country and its overall
influence on the social, political, and economic order of the society.
Research Question
To have a clearer understanding of racism in Canada, specific questions have to be asked
to access the root, reasons for prevalence, justification, and solution to racism. The main question
that this research asks is on the justification of racism in this multicultural country. What is
racism? Is there and difference between the ethno-cultural groups in Canada? Do such differ-
ences influence structural incorporation and social mobility? Are there institutions striving to put
structural adjustments to accommodate the ever diverse Canadian ethno-cultural groups?

Racism refers to the treatment given to people due to their phenotypic attributes. Race
categorization or racialization is the process by which such ideologies are put in practice. Skin
colour and hair texture are the basis of making these racial profiles.
Question Background
Social justice and equity are important elements to the normal societal order. Racism
actively undermines these at all possible levels. While focus is mainly on the effect of racism on
the social context, few pay particular importance to the impact that racism has had on the
economic terms. With the country projected to have at least 20% of the total population from the
minority by 2017, the country has urgent need to tackle racism before it gets out of hand.
Methodology
Racism, as it is, is a sensitive topic whose research needs not only to be extensive but
rigorous. This helps to bring out a clear perspective of a controversial area of research. Books,
print and online media, as well as scholar articles and journals were used to bring together the
different perspectives of racism in Canada. However, the book “Race And Racism In 21st-
Century Canada: Continuity, Complexity, And Change”, by Hier and Bolaria provides the main
basis for this research. The others will provide supportive literature to what it views the Canadian
racism situation as.
