There will still be a long way to go with radical solutions to turn the “dream” of a just society, where people are judged not because of skin color, property or religion, ethnicity…, but respected by character, dignity and competence, as pastor Martin Luther King spoke of more than half a century ago, becomes a reality. Speak up when you hear racist slurs or jokes.
People often dismiss racist comments or jokes when upset without knowing what to say. However, being prepared to respond in advance will give you the ability to react and act to defend what is right. There are many approaches to the problem that you can choose from depending on your personality, your relationship with the person who said these words, and the situation at the time: Consider responding “That’s not cool.” In some cases, like in the middle of class or when you get off the bus stop, you won’t have the time or ability to fully discuss what someone is saying, but you can let them know that Their behavior was out of bounds. You will feel better when you have defended the right thing. Try saying, “Oh, that’s really racist. Why do you say that?” Starting a conversation will make the other person think about whether or not they should say what they just said.
If it’s a joke, try saying, “Why is that funny?” in a serious tone, as if you didn’t understand the joke. Forcing someone to explain why their joke is funny will cause that person to consider the racist implications they have made. After explaining, if they still think the joke is funny, you can say, “That joke was really racist.”
Face racism in your family. Sometimes the people who offend the most are family members, like your respected grandfather or mother. Your family member may make racist comments or jokes, or actually behave discriminatory toward other races (for example, not allowing you to date black people or not allowing you to date black people). Indian friends visit your house).
This situation can be difficult for you, because it is people that you respect and obey (eg your parents, when you were still living with your family) Be calm, but let them know how you feel. Families are built on the foundation of love and trust, you should confidently let your family members know when they have said or done something offensive. Don’t yell, don’t criticize the individual, but let them know: for example, you could say, “I don’t like what you said” or “What you said upset me,” or ask them to explain. I love why they say such racist things. This will start the conversation and give you an opportunity to point out why their behavior is problematic. Note that sometimes talking to these people can make matters worse; for example, if an uncle knows that racist jokes bother you, he or she may intentionally add more jokes.
If your parents set racist rules about your friends, you’ll have to choose. You can follow that rule while you’re with your parents, or you can secretly break their rule. Understand that when they learn of your actions, you may suffer consequences. Sometimes you can’t get a racist family member to stop doing or saying hurtful things. You can choose to stay as far away from the person as possible, and continue to let them know how you feel about their racism, but unfortunately, in some cases, this will not work. fruit. Understand their choices and do your best to avoid fostering prejudiced and blinded thoughts or habits.
