How Can You Respond To A Racist Friend?

The BBC News Magazine examines a difficult social question: how can you sensibly respond to a friend who makes a racist comment? While the article was inspired by a UK-centric media scandal, the issue it raises is one that has relevance across the globe. One possible tactic the article doesn’t examine is using an anonymous webapp like previously mentioned NiceCritic or Whisper Bot to call out your friend on their behaviour, but that’s still an imperfect solution in many contexts. Got a better way to handle this social minefield? Share it in the comments.
