Speech on racism

Racism, what is it really? These days the work racism is used in different matters but what does it really mean? Racism works against the principle of being equal and the right of all people to be treated fairly.

In this day and age anyone who is black or white, from different cultures and backgrounds can be discriminated against Australia especially the aboriginals who suffered an extremely racist history. Many have fought for change such as Mabo which fought for land right, Martin Luther King which he had a dream where black and white people could get along and Rosa Parks who had sat in the front seat of the bus and then got arrested for it.

Now teenagers today are disrespecting the hard work of great people like Mabo ect. We all say racist things to Asians for no reason, than to make us laugh and may do it to other cultures but even though we may get told not to we still do especially that we hang around with our own race it same background, like the Asians hang with the Asians same with Indians, Egyptians, Lebanese ect. We get told to go hang with other cultures and try to be friends with them all what I think is adults have a more understanding so there fore would and mix and make friends, but as you can see teenagers pretty much hang with our own type and may not think to go make friends with other cultures.

We need to make the effort to embrace and accept other cultures and this can start with the simple act of friendship.
