Dismantling Racism Works (drworks) and Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) have resources on the Characteristics of White Supremacy Culture. Developed originally by Kenneth Jones and Tema Okun in 2001, these characteristics examine values, behaviors and processes that work to support and affirm white supremacy.
Each characteristic is also accompanied by 'antidotes,' ways to disrupt these ways of thinking and ways to do things differently.
