SAY NO TO RACISM by Numizmat SAY NO TO RACISM by Numizmat
:pc:What is Racism?</u> Racism means attitudes, practices and other factors that disadvantage people because of their race, color or ethnicity. Racism can be directed against any race, color or ethnicity.
Some examples of racism are obvious, such as graffiti, intimidation or physical violence. Racial and ethnic slurs and "jokes" are other examples. Unfortunately, they are often ignored because people do not know how to deal with them.
Other forms of racism are not obvious, such as discrimination in hiring and apartment rentals, or policies that disadvantage members of certain races, whether intentionally or not.
Racism exists at three main levels: individual, institutional and cultural.

What can I do to stop racism?
First of all, speak out against racism. Otherwise, your silence may be interpreted as tacit approval of discrimination. You have the right, as well as the responsibility, to speak out.

I totally hate racist people! But if we think well, it's impossible to stop the racism in the world. I mean, it dosen't matter how much we fight against it, it will never stop (it dosent mean we must stop fighting against racism). Especially because the media influences a lot on racism, it's a kind of brainwash that we don't realize. Most of the commercials to promote something good, features a happy white family in a pretty house, or a beautiful women, or a rich white man with a lot of girls. Or the terrible stereotype that the perfect girl is the blonde girl, with blue eyes and rosy cheeks, this kind of stereotype is used in advertisements and commercials. While when they want to show the poverty, they show a black family, if they wanna show drugs, they show black people using drugs and vandalizing. To stop racism we must stop the media!

The Bible says that all people are of "one blood," so racism is disrespectful to God as well as the victim. Even if you aren't Christian, studies have shown that there is a 0.2 genetic difference between any two people, regardless of their "race." So, racist people really have no excuse at all for scorning their fellow human beings based on superficial differences.

I have grown up in a racist environment ever since I was born. My mom was introduced to it when black children would injure white children. They would say, "All our problems are because of you!" Because of that, so many white kids were beat up by blacks, it was outrageous. One that had bullied my mom threatened to kill her whole family if she told an adult. She was constantly dragged into the bushes and punched and kicked.

There were victims that had it worse, though. Someone suffered from a broken arm. That is simply insane. However, I am not racist. Just because my family was discriminated against by blacks doesn't mean I should act like my grandmother or uncle. 

True, millions of blacks appear on the news for crimes. But I know there are more than just black criminals out there, but ones who are innocent. Half of my family believes African Americans are all crazy in the head. I don't believe so.

I just wish racism would stop.

No but there isn't a lack of black's either, just look at fresh prince. 
But even if there is a lack, does that mean white people can't be victims of racism? 

I've grown up in France and I've seen little white English kids being beaten to the ground by certain groups for being white and English. There's one example. 

Anyone can be a victim of racism.

How are you a victim in any of the nine areas? 

Lets start with entertainment(media: Television, Movies, cartoons, comics, books, magazines,video games,art) Is there a lack of white people in these areas?
