S.T.O.P Presentation: Racism
Transcript of S.T.O.P Presentation: Racism
T - Think
How to approach racism in everyday life:
- Watch how you treat others
- Think before you talk
- Think of everyone as yourself or remember the Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you)
O - Others
P - Pray
Lord Jesus Christ who reached across the ethnic boundaries of Samaritan, Roman and Jew, who offered fresh sight to the blind and freedom to captives, help us to break down the barriers in our community, enable us to see the reality of racism and bigotry, and free us to challenge and uproot it from ourselves, our society and our world. Amen.
With racism, the timing can play a large role.
- The timing can increase the negative impact and effect of the racist comment and act. There are many examples of this.
- It is best to not make racist comments as one does not know when someone is feeling vulnerable and a racist comment that may have been meant as harmless could be very hurtful
- It is very important to consult others on how they feel about the things we say as they may be racist
- We may not mean to hurt others with the things we say and may not have meant to be racist; therefore, it is important to get a second opinion from other people to learn whether or not they were hurt or offended by what was said.
S.T.O.P Presentation: Racism
- Like many actions, acts of racism can cause chain reactions and result in others being racist as well
- racism is dangerous; it brings shame, hatred, prejudice, discrimination and negativity into society and to others
- Many times throughout history, we have seen how racism and prejudice has taken away the freedom of others and things all people have a right to have
Racism is treating someone differently and with prejudice because of their race or culture
- Racism has existed throughout human history, from the 1400s to now. It has influenced wars, slavery, the formation of nations and legal codes.
- Racism is a form of hatred and prejudice. It takes many different forms which include written or verbal threats or insults, damage to property, including graffiti, and violence.
- In the past, groups such as the African American, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Muslim, and Aboriginals were racially discriminated by Westerners.
- Today almost everyone is discriminated because of their race, whether it may be by other individuals, or groups.
- There are government laws preventing specific people from immigrating in the country and extremist groups that exhibit racial violence just out of pure hatred and anger for the other.
- Some are introduced to racism by their parents or the media in their upbringing, resulting in the child growing up prejudice to others.
- Others are racist to feel superior or because of fear of being dominated by someone else.
- Ignorance and Xenophobia can also be other reasons for racism
"1934 Created in the image of the one God and equally endowed with rational souls, all men have the same nature and the same origin. Redeemed by the sacrifice of Christ, all are called to participate in the same divine beatitude: all therefore enjoy an equal dignity. 1935 The equality of men rests essentially on their dignity as persons and the rights that flow from it: Every form of social or cultural discrimination in fundamental personal rights on the grounds of sex, race, color, social conditions, language, or religion must be curbed and eradicated as incompatible with God's design."
- When deciding what to do in situations of racism, people must remember to act with maturity, thoughtfulness and consideration for other people
- When in a situation of racism, people must try to do what they can to prevent racism as much as possible, doing what they can to stop racism.
- Racism exists everywhere in the world.
- In some countries like Canada, racial stereotypes or jokes seem engrained and a normal part of our society while in other parts, some races consider themselves superior and take extreme racial measures against the other.
- All in all, every timing and place both have a different effect on the morality of racism.
The Catholic Catechism on Racism:
- Living life as Jesus would want involves listening to his teachings by reflecting on parables such as The Good Samaritan.
-You can not judge the character of a human based on their ethnicity. Despite any outside differences all people are the children of God and, therefore, neighbors to one another.
- The teaching that Jesus stressed regarding the relationship one has with others is expressed in Matthew 22:34-40, “36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
-We are all God’s children.
- The bible makes its stance on the treatment of other racial groups clear in several passages, for example in Leviticus 19:33-34 it says, “Do not mistreat foreigners living in your land. The foreigner must be treated as one of your own. Love him as you love yourself, because you were once foreigners in the land of Egypt.”
- Racial discrimination is against the teachings of the Catholic church in regards to social justice and one’s relationships with others. - It is ultimately aimed at damaging the humanity and dignity of another group of people. It takes place today in many parts of the world including out own.
