Racism Still Rules The World
Transcript of Racism Still Rules The World
There was supposed to be a movie filmed in a resort, but the location of the movie had to be moved because of the owner's attitude about a family bringing two black children a long. His resort has a 'whites' only rule. He quoted,"I don't allow black people onto my property, they cannot be trusted" What is Racism?
Racism is hatred from one person to another,in this matter there can be a fight or even war. In Africa, Racism was the worst in the apartheid era. There was a lot of political violence that was seen mostly in black and white. White people were only allowed to vote or run the country. Story:
My child was shouting black people over there;white people over there as he looked outside the window. There was a small six-year old girl who had been learning about the Civil Rights Movement and segregation. When we moved to Uganda, our son was just 2 years old and he seemed to have no awareness of skin colour or maybe it was the fact that Uganda is a different place from America. Even though they were very few white people in his school we never heard him talk about being different or show any awareness that most people are black around us and that we are not. About six months later our son came back from school and started talking about 'the black kid' and then moments later he started talking about 'the blue kid' and 'the red kid' then we realized he was referring to the clothes the other kids were wearing .Then came the dinner party and not suprisingly our Ugandan friends just laughed because in Uganda you call it like you see it. Some people are white some are black, some are fat, some are skinny and somebody with one leg is called 'the guy with one leg' . As i was giving my son a bath he sorted all of his bath toys by color along the edges. Children love to categorize things. They like to be friends with only people who like the same things as themselves for example if one child likes movies and the other person likes books they wouldnt really like each other but if one child likes books and the other one likes books too they would be friends. Black people did not have the same rights as white people. Here are some things that the law was against:
black people could not have the same education as white people, medical care,or sit in the same bus.
Black people had to carry pass books with them to non-black areas.
White people were only allowed to vote and to choose the future of the country. African people couldn't really do anything because they were under colonization from a lot of countries in Europe.Such as:France, Great Britian and Holland. Today African people have more rights to get better:
Homes As you can see, in these two stories that the black people; don't really have enough power and continue today to be under power. Another thing that we noticed was that people should be friends with different people from different cultures from around the world, so that they can their knowledge can widen. THANKS FOR WATCHING!!!!
