Racial Discrimination Presentation
Transcript of Racial Discrimination Presentation
There are many ways to try to reduce racial discrimination. What are some actions we could take for a better world?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Let's Declare "No More Racism!"
Being Aware of Your Surroundings
What We Can Do to Reduce Racism
Bring Global Awareness to Racial Discrimination by having educational programs that would teach people about racism and inequality in the society.
Ex.) If we share more information about racism and teach children about it
--> less conflicts caused by social inequality

Defining Racial Discrimination
What are we supposed to do?
What Programs Will Teach
1) We should send petitions to the government to keep an eye on the society and try to make everyone equal.
2) We should use stronger words and more power like marches and protests for equality between races.
3) We should change our minds slightly so that we don't prejudge and stereotype others.
What is it?
Racial discrimination - the use of a person's race to justify an injustice against that person.
-Declaration of Independence
Being able to be equal is not a privilege. It is a right.
Examples of Events Caused by Racism
- 11 million people dead due to Holocaust (6 million of them being Jews)
--> Because of Adolf Hitler's belief that those with blue eyes, white pale skin, and blonde hair (Caucasian) was more superior than others.
- 2014 Soccer Season - Dani Alves - Commonly Known as "Banana Incident"
--> Because of Racist Fan's Anger / The banana symbolized how the fan thought of Alves as a "black" monkey.
- Rwandan Genocide - "Tragedy of 100 Days"
--> In just 100 days in 1994, some 800,000 people were slaughtered in Rwanda by ethnic Hutu extremists.
Slavery - an important role in leading U.S. to how it is now.
--> by making this structure since settlement as a British colony
- This system became too engraved in the history of the United States.
--> White people still continuously have this idea of superiority although the intensity has decreased significantly compared to before the 13th Amendment.
McCain vs. Obama
95% of African Americans, 66% of Latinos, and 61% of Asian Americans voted for Obama.
Obama only received 41% of the White male vote (vs. 57% for McCain) and 46% of the White female vote (vs. 53% for McCain).
Apartheid in South Africa
Apartheid - a policy or system of segregation or discrimination on grounds of race
- was caused by European powers in the government who mostly controlled the citizens.
Nelson Mandela (1918~2013)
- the first black President of South Africa.
- spent 27 years in prison for trying to overthrow the pro-apartheid government.
After he left prison, he worked to achieve human rights and a better future for everyone in South Africa.
How are Foreigners Treated in South Korea?
Anonymous survey conducted in April 2014 - showed that most foreigners in the local area of Busan have been called a "foreigner" or from a certain country.
According to the aforementioned, about 60% has been called a "foreigner" in Korea.
Conclusion and Final Proposal
To allow educational programs to teach people about racism, we need funding.
Funding will be provided by donating organizations (like European Network Against Racism) and the government.
Volunteers will help and donate as well.
