“A Long Walk yet...”

published 30/01/2005

ProWe are making progress

Contra...far too slowly

I am not a racist. I wish I could say that with confidence. I think that, in fact, quite the reverse could be true. I do not believe that any race is inherently any better or worse than any other, in the same way that I don’t think any species of fish or dog is any better or worse than any other...

ProA better future

ContraA lot of soul searching

If you believe children should be educated about racism read this… In the late 1950’s a Jamaican family moved into our street, now if you have read a little about me you will know what our street was like. You can imagine the scenario. The neighbours were aghast! Well then. What did the...

ProRacism should stop

Contrait will take a long time to achieve

I just read a review by Karnes and I thought that as a person of mixed heritage I could offer a more unique point of view. Witnessing Racism is harrowing enough but experiencing it is horrendous. I have experienced racism from both sides of the coin. Im not particularly dark, with dark hair and...

ProMaybe one day we can stamp out Racism

ContraProbably not

This is a subject which I am very passionate about, so forgive me if this just seems to be a bit of a rant and rave. Anyone who is insulted by this, please accept my epologies, but racism is a harsh reality. I am a 20 something white female and have friends from many different ethnic backgrounds...

ProWe can have our say

ContraThe race weapon

The Strictly Come Dancing row over the sequinned Anton Du Beke (real name Tony Beak!) comments to Laila Rouass, his gorgeous and spicey Morrocan-Indian mix dance partner, were indeed racist and the guy should have been sacked. He mut used the words in more than jest and a subtle way to say Im the...

“When will we ever Learn?”

published 28/01/2005

ProWe must work together.

ContraHatred & Bigotry.

World events have been in the news and on our television screens for several years now, since 9/11 onwards the various events, Afghanistan, the Iraq war, the continuing unrest in so many countries have both touched and appalled many of us. In the news this week we have seen the trial of soldiers...

Introduction While making paper clip daisy chains a major thought bamboozled into my lobe, they don't come often, but when they do reside and question my own rhetoric, I often grab a pen, when found one, I promptly then forget what I was going to write. Lost for the world to see, due to the fact...

What is the best way to combat racism? By doing nothing! I'm a racist, and furthermore so are you. Quite an intense opening statement do you not think? But I think I need to clarify my statement in order for you to agree or disagree with. Let me for a moment discuss myself, on meeting me most...

“IT REALLY IS BLACK AND WHITE”

ProEqaulity for all

ContraGovernment

Britain: the Great British people are disillusioned with many things in this country, not least the way it is run. But when it comes to racism, are you racist? Can you honestly put my hand on your heart and say that you are not racist in some small way. I’m not sure whether what I feel would be...

ProA fair decent tolerant society

Contraresentment, trouble, violence

Modern society, supposedly based on 'liberal' ideals, has elevated, or lowered, certain 'crimes' of thought and deed to a position where perpetrators are seen as so beyond the pale of respectability that they merit no understanding, no hearing or mitigation, just wholesale condemnation and the...

ProYou jest

ContraIntolerance,violence,ignorance and so on.....

Every one, in their own way is racist! I defy anyone to say they are not. We all have personal likes and dislikes when it comes to appraising people we meet and that includes preconceived attitudes to skin colour, religious beliefs or country of origin. My own personal racism is against people...

This is a subject I feel very strongly about. My boyfriend is african and muslim so on both counts in the minority in the city where we live. I have always been passionate about such issues but after being with him for 2 years I now realise how many people still think it is acceptable to...

I really am in one of those reflective moods today. After being philosophical on ciao last month I am now turning my thoughts to racism. I have deliberated whether to post this op as I am always concerned with what others think about what I write. I posted on dooyoo previously and have edited the...
