stop racism in the media!
stop racism in the media! this is what we say. dont you think being judged by your skin colour is unfair i`m sure you have heard the saying "dont judge a book by its cover" so why do we judge people by there skin colour we should look at there heart`s and see what a loving person they are. i have created this website because i want to stop racism in the media and i want YOU to agree with me that judging a person by there skin colour is unfair. here is an eg of racism in the media. what people don't realise is that just by saying they are this or that can actually affect them in many different ways e.g. low self esteem, no confidence and depression.
there are many definitons for Racism but in fact the most reliable would have to be this:
"the term "racial discrimination" shall mean any distinction, exclusion, restriction, or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin that has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life."
What people have to realise is that they shouldn't be doing this especially to other people.we as human`s must learn to live together and understand each other. if we were victimized we would not have tolerated that happening to us, we would have taken some action towards us getting bullied because of our race so why should we do it to others.
seeing the world at large can remove this mindset. You will see good and bad people from your race or different race. Only then you will be able to remove hatred towards other races, and prove to yourself, that there are good and bad people, no matter what their race is.
opinions of people about racism:
2 girls in Year 6 have said how they feels about racism and this is what she said,
"I feel absolutely disgusted over the issue of racism, because there shouldn't be a problem regarding what colour someone is. Many wars are caused through people's ignorance. Racism will only cease to exist through education in our schools".
Olivia, Year 6
Racism can effect everyone ...black, white, young or old. This is just one form of bullying that we can do without.
What is the point of racism? We are all the same people inside aren't we? We all have feelings, so STOP RACISM and make Burmantofts a better place to live in for everyone regardless of colour, creed or religion.
by Laura Year 6.
Racism is making people that speak, look or even talk a different way feel unimportant and have low self-esteem.
We should all look after and care for each other and look after the World around us, instead of hating and provoking everyone who has a different language, colour and nationality.
Racism is not just words, but actions!
Racism can lead to death and many things which could instill fear in the lives of many; so we must stop it's cruel evil so the next generation won't have to put up with racism.
People hurt and racism is hurtful. Don't be racist!
by Olivia Year 6
This is what a member of staff feels about racism:
"I abhor racism - it is the scourge of our society. I was once a victim of racist comments, I was spat at, whilst driving down the road, for no reason at all other than the colour of my skin. I went to the police station in order that they could investigate this racist incident using the saliva on my jacket. They're still investigating NOW"Miss Fahl.
