When we speak of racism, immediately the 1970s to the 1990s come to mind; the time of Nelson Mandela, the time when there was complete segregation between the “blacks” and the “whites”. If your skin tone was dark, you sat at the back of the bus and vice versa. Racism is not associated with the 21st century where every school and workplace is culturally diverse and has people from all over the world with different types of skin colours and tones. In fact we may think there is no racism at all but in reality it has gotten worse. In the 1970s and the 1990s, racism was public, out-in-the-open, people would be racist straight to your face but in this generation and era, things have changed, racism has gotten worse and nastier. People are racist behind your back, you are not discriminated in public but instead if you are dark-skinned, chances are you are less likely to get a job even though people may treat you like you are equal, reality is they will discriminate against you without you knowing. I believe the one and only way to defeat racism is to fight fire with fire or give them a taste of their own medicine. Show people how it feels to be discriminated against and rejected over and over again because of your skin tone. This is the one and only way to effectively defeat racism. Giving lectures and talks will do no good. Reporting racism and discrimination is useless because they will continue doing it but on a less public level. I believe that is the only way to defeat racism.
