Are we all racist?
Race doesn’t matter, I don’t see color. She didn’t mean it like that, don’t be so sensitive it’s just a joke, it’s a children’s party don’t spoil the fun!! Still there is racism
Racisme around the world
Lots of people that say that and stress the importance that they don’t see color. Yet you are confronted with almost only white models in magazines or Role models in life. This is an example in Western world, but not only in Western countries race is an issue it’s everywhere Africa, Caribbean, Latin America you name it. I come from a Tiny Island who says there is no discrimination. Yet they known lots of words for color shades of Brown! the shades range from white, red, yellow, light Brown, Brown, dark Brown and light black, black, dark black to describe people. Yet nobody on the Island talks about this as discrimination! It’s Europe and America who discriminate according to the islanders. A good docu about this on the Island of Curacao is Shadow of color (Sombra di kolo).
Book and movie
I like that the film Good hair already talked a bit about this subject, but the Book Americanah goes even deeper into the subject and touches the unsaid discrimination between colored people even from the same background. I like that the book discusses the subject from the view from an Nigerian woman and is a must read for people giving their opinion about the Dutch party Sinterklaas with the black Piets. Is it sensitivity or is there some harsh truth in this book we all just don’t want to see? Are we all racist? Is it then ok that everybody is?
