It also affects the roles that social workers undertake, distorts client-worker relationships by diverting resources to other purposes and skews the balance of power towards those providing or purchasing services instead of those requiring them, especially if they do not have independent means to pay for them. Black people, as an economically disadvantaged group, are at the sharp end of these processes. Depriving people of the resources they need to reproduce themselves as social entities when they are structurally excluded from doing so orients social work intervention more forcefully towards its controlling dimensions.

Such understandings become important, for example, when white social workers are confronted with black nursery -school children wanting to paint their skins white (Coard, 1971), black children in care demanding white foster parents, or black clients refusing to accept black social workers. They should not interpret these forms of behaviour as manifestations of white superiority or their desire to conform to white life-styles . Such responses are often survival responses aimed at retaining a sense of self in the context of internalised racism.

Redressing this situation requires white people to counter the damage racism causes their personae and their relationships with black people by developing their role in fighting racism. After taking responsibility for owning the monstrosity of racism, white people must actively deconstruct it. This constitutes the anti-racist struggle whereby white people can empower themselves. For me, this is a political, moral and socially necessary imperative . We must stop exploiting black people and desist from providing them with inappropriate services in exchange.
