Terms: Racialization, Reconciliation
“Racialization is the very complex and contradictory process through which groups come to be designated as being part of a particular "race" and on that basis subjected to differential and/or unequal treatment. Put simply, “racialization [is] the process of manufacturing and utilizing the notion of race in any capacity” (Dalal, 2002, p. 27). While white people are also racialized, this process is often rendered invisible or normative to those designated as white. As a result, white people may not see themselves as part of a race but still maintain the authority to name and racialize "others.””Alberta Anti-Racism Education
"Reconciliation means that you had a good relationship to begin with and then you're reconciling the relationship, in particular with the Canadian government, but the relationship has never been good," Sandlanee Gid said.
“What's needed first, Sandlanee Gid and others argue, is a process of conciliation — which the Oxford dictionary describes as "the action of mediating between two disputing people or groups" — before reconciliation can occur.” Angela Sterritt, CBC News
