This centuries old trend is so been there, done that. Instead of asserting white supremecy, how about we remember that we are all equal under the eyes of the law.
2. Homophobia and transphobia
Let's do away with the hatred of LGBTQ+ folks in the new year. Love is love and gender is a social construct.
Women can do anything men can do. The patriarchy is an archaic power structure that must go in 2017.
Donald Trump may be the president, but that doesn't mean we have to take his oppressive policies sitting down. Speak out against oppressive policies whenever possible/safe to do so.
Disabled people are still people and they have rights, just like able-bodied folks. Disabled people are not here for your inspiration porn; being nice to someone who's disabled doesn't make you a saint, it makes you a decent human being. This includes all disablities: physical, mental, and cognitive/developmental. Stop using slurs against disabled people like the r-slur. No, Becky, you are not "soo OCD" you like having a clean room, there's a big difference. Don't ask about disabled person's medical history unless you're their doctor.
6. Islamophobia and anti-Semitism
With the surge of the "alt-right" (aka neo-Nazis), be sure to stand up for the rights of Muslim and Jewish people. They need our support now more than ever.
These are some trends we're ditching in the new year.
