When racism is a deeply ingrained part of a particular society's history, researchers like everyone else in that society are socialized to that racism. Historically, racism has had a strong presence in scientific work in the United States and in some other western nations. In contemporary times, as a result of any number of factors, social scientists may inadvertently introduce racism into the research setting. This article identifies several of the many common manifestations of racism. The discussion includes strategies for identifying and removing racism from various research and other processes, as well as ways for identifying types of racism that may be hidden in the contexts in which research and similar other activities take place.
