Think before you speak
Racism isn't always a big incident that you see on the TV - it can be just a small and thoughtless remark. Think before you speak or you could upset someone by saying something you don't even mean.
Everyone has the responsibility to help stamp out racism and the world will be a much better place without it. Report all incidents of racial harassment to the police as it is illegal to verbally or physically abuse someone because of their race or religion. The police will record it as a hate incident, more commonly know as a hate crime.
A hate crime is any hate incident which is a criminal offence and the victim or any other person believes it to be because of prejudice (an opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience) or hate.
The police record a hate incident if the victim or another person believes it is motivated by the hatred of someone because of a particular factor. Those factors include:
Diversity isn't just about race, it embrasses all our differences and in order for us to live together peacefully we need to accept and respect these differences.
The pink and the blue,
The brown the yellow the white,
The two limbed, the four limbed,
And the religious beliefs of them all!
My attempt at poetry! And you have done alot better visit Being different, feeling different to read the very thought provoking poems.
Racial harassment is when someone abuses another person, verbally or physically, because of their race, colour or religion. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect and racism is unacceptable.
