just like you can't separate language from politics, or language learning/teaching from politics, you can't separate racism from politics.

it's everywhere, even if you consider yourself an 'apolitical' person. sticking with the language example: it's in the language you speak, in the languages you choose to consume (that aren't your native one) through media (music, film), it's in the languages you choose to learn (or not learn), it's in how you treat people who speak a different language than you and in whether you treat someone who speaks french different than someone who speaks farsi.

edit: missing word; punctuation

Apolitical needs a shift in meaning. Currently understood as "I don't give a shit, let's not mess with anything until proven it works", I want it to mean "Neither left- nor right-wing of government. No policies for your polities.". Apolitical as in: can't fix it with politics, gotta be more radical than that.
