stand up against racism

Racism is bigotry, prejudgment, or negative attitudes aimed towards another person based on their religion, color, ethnicity, or cultural background. It is the belief of some specific groups of different communities that think that they are superior, and all others are lesser than them. The social and moral characteristics of a human being are determined by its inborn biological characteristics. Ethnic separatism is the idea that separate groups will stay separated apart from one another and they must much of their time focused on bigotry. But as a humanist, I believe that racism is unacceptable, and everyone must stand up against racism.

Racism and history

Racism exists in all parts of the world including Western and Eastern but the basis or a little bit different on both parts. Nevertheless, Over the last 500-1000 years, racism by Western powers against non-Westerners has had a much greater effect on history than any other kind of racism. Western racism exists on the basis of skin color but not on religion but in Eastern racism exists in the form of religion, intra-religious discrimination, and social class systems. The West’s most infamous definition of oppression was slavery; the enslavement of the Africans in the New World in particular. One most important feature of racism is being observed very clear in attitudes particularly towards blacks and immigrant groups.

  1. I love this so much. It’s kind of sad, because why has it taken this long for us to really realize that racism is still prevalent in society? But I’m so glad to see people finally standing up, and hopefully we can continue to do so.

  2. Thank you for this article my brother or whosoever wrote this article, racism is everywhere in the world. This is not God’s plan for man, God stated all men should be at peace with their fellow. Coming together as one starts from everyone of us and educating our upcoming one’s through a positive attitude towards our fellows.

  3. Racism has existed eversince human history has existed. Racism has many forms. The biggest problem is people is afraid to stand up for it. About the recent incident in USA people stood up because of unity….

  4. Itโ€™s so sad that in 2020, we still live in a world full of racism and prejudice. i can only hope that real change will happen one day and for the best.

  5. Is unbearable to see that we we still have racism in 2020 what happened to George Floyd can’t be justified by any means. These acts of violence needs to stop. Police brutality and racial bias needs to be over.

  6. Unfortunately, racism has always been an issue in America. It’s too bad that it took a tragedy to open a lot of eyes and create change. I am hopeful that now more people will be able to live in peace and not fear.

  7. It is sad that in 2020 we still need to tell people that racism is wrong. It makes me sad that the world has come to this, but I hope to leave a better and more accepting wprld for my children.

  8. I definitely agree that racism is a very bad thing to do and that we must fight for a system of justice and peace, racist behaviors should disappear in order to make the world a better place for all of us.

  9. Color does matter and Foundational Black Americans want the brutality to stop and to be given the reparations that we are owed for building this country and the option to separate because they have been treating us this way for 465+ years with slavery and oppression.

  10. Still wishing that more can be done to educate more people on the topic of racism and what each of us can do to re-train ourselves to accept people the way they are because being different is great.

  11. Great tips! It’s nice to read some concrete actions we can take, I often get overwhelmed feeling that this is all deep down human nature, since racism and bullies on every level have existed from the beginning of time, it feels hopeless to overcome it, but we have to try!!!

  12. There are so many ways of racism in this world, from straight forward actions and name calling, to micro aggressions. I was shocked when I moved to a new country for the first time and I experienced racism, even as a white person, because of my nationality. It was the first time I’ve heard people talking using racist terms above other people’s backs, and that is so wrong! Racism needs to stop, in every way and form! People need to realise that the color of your skin, the place you were born, the shape of your eyes – don’t make you inferior to someone else.

  13. Wow. This article is really intense. Not many people have the ability to stand in the face of fear and speak so passionately about a controversial subject. I certainly stand with you. And I wish I had your tenacity.

  14. While I agree with most of what you’ve said, racism has nothing to do with religion. In spite of, I’m really excited that people (not all, but more than the usual) are ready to come to the table to be heard and to listen.
