1 Minute Speech on Racism In English

A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of racism.

Google defines the term ‘racism’ to be “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism by an individual, community, or institution against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.” It also states that racism involves “the belief that different races possess distinct characteristics, abilities, or qualities, especially so as to distinguish them as inferior or superior to one another.”

Simply put, racism is to discriminate and oppress a person on the basis of their race. Although racism is predominantly viewed in the light of the White community establishing their superiority over the Black community, this behaviour of theirs also extends to other races and ethnicities such as Asian. 

Racism ought to be eradicated. Human beings as a whole need to come to the understanding that all of us are equal. 

Thank you.
