Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about racial discrimination and racism. Racism and racial discrimination are prevalent worldwide at the moment. A problem that is by no means new but has perhaps not gotten enough attention is now coming to the notice of the world.
A demand for significant institutional and structural changes that recognize the equality of colored people has gone out throughout the world. While the legal system is frequently in the spotlight, systemic improvements must reach the very heart of any society at all levels, including the workplace, if they are to be effective.
Although having similarities, racism, and racial discrimination are two different things. Racism involves more than just racial hatred as an experience and behavior. The idea that one group is superior to another is known as racism. Racial insults, jokes, and hate crimes are all examples of racial injustice. Moreover, attitudes, values, and traditional views may be more strongly ingrained in them.
Racism’s illegal expression is racial discrimination. It encompasses any behavior—intentional or not—that has the impact of separating people based on their race, placing obligations on them rather than others, and denying or restricting access to benefits offered to other members of society. Racial discrimination can occur even when race isn’t the only factor at work. Thank you.
