Written by Anne Marie Aikins and illustrated by Steven Murray.
Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2004.


Few people would identify themselves as racist and yet we all hold attitudes and beliefs about cultures that are different from our own which affect the way we behave towards others. Using realistic examples and sensitive language, Racism: Deal with It Before It Gets Under Your Skin examines the sources of racial and cultural conflicts and the many forms — both obvious and subtle — that prejudice can take.

Whether they have experienced racial conflict as a member of a dominant or a minority group, this important book will help young people recognize and overcome barriers to peace, understanding, and acceptance.

  • Racism 101 explains where racist attitudes come from
  • Letters to the "Conflict Counsellor" show you how to manage in difficult situations
  • Quizzes test your ability to handle tense situations involving racism
  • A resource guide puts helpful organizations, books and web sites at your fingertips
The Deal With It series helps adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities.

Author Anne Marie Aikins has written extensively about social justice issues for a variety of publications for both children and adults, and the Deal With It series.

Attractively illustrated, this book is intended for ages 10+.
