RAC Race

Zines about race or racism. Zines with an indigenous focus should be filed under IND Indigenous, even if they deal specifically with the concept of race or racism.

The Colouring Book

Crinkled up brown paper adorns the majority of the front page, along with drawn, partially dissected body. The white space surrounding the body is filled with words
The Colouring book is a project made by a Vancouver based youth-driven project where people of colour came together to build community, reflect, express, and explore issues of race and experiences that have shaped who we are through discussion, writing and other arts.

Thou Shalt Not Talk about the White Boys' Club: Challenging the Unwritten Rules of Punk (2nd edition)

Refuse to be Abused (using the law to fight back)

" Project X is a group of people who work with youth to help combat racial profiling based in N.D.G. We document and take testimonials about youth and racial profiling. We also give legal workshops that help inform you about your rights when it comes to racial profiling, the Do's and don'ts of interacting with the police. We think its important to acknowledge that racial profiling is real, to be vocal about it, and to try to fight it."

Somali Semantic (not your sad east african girl)

"We started this zine in the hot steamy summer of 2015 in Yasmin's Montreal apartment eating pizza sold by a creepy Haitian dude (who was intensely fetishizing us, going on and on about pretty east african girls *insert Drake quote*).

Since the day we met, we always had so much to say and share about our realities as two Somali girls born and raised in the shitty settler colony of Canada. From angsty diasporic woes to angry ruminations on sex and patriarchy (between bouts of turning up to future) and so much more.

Somali Semantics is a body of work borne out of these conversations- and a desperate need to see our narratives represented. In the same vein, we wanted to be able to connect with other young Somali women who have probably been engaging with similar realities."
