With the possibilities of government intervention against racism covered, it is also necessary to cover action that would be carried out from society itself, rather than from the top-down policies of the government. Any anti-racism strategy a government implements would have to be endorsed by the majority of society to be successful, otherwise the legislation the government passes, and the efforts taken to combat racism would likely be met with resistance and disregard from the population. As Lawrence Hill points out, it is societal attitudes that can perhaps matter more than any official classifications or statistics in the formation of racism and an individual’s response to it, emphasizing its importance. Again, there can be both positive and negative approaches to racism, both of which go hand-in-hand and can be used to combat its effect in society.
