I Was 13 When I First Experienced Racism
I was 13 when I first experienced racism.
My father is black and my mother is white. So I am white but mixed raced.
I was walking home with my 'friend' when we started talking about how our teacher had singled her out and had a go at her. She told me it was because her brother had spoken out about voting national front.
I asked "Is your brother racist?"
She replied "Yeah"
I asked "Are you Ok with it?"
She replied "My brothers racist, my parents are racist and i am racist"
I said "But why???"
She said "I hate blacks! They dont deserve to be in our counrty. This is our country why cant they go back to where they came from??"
I said "You do know half my family is back dont you?"
She didnt reply. I went home and cried. My father wanted to go beat her dad up but I told him not to.
She later on told me that over one night she had realised that racism was wrong and that i was her best friend.
I hated her and always have. She lied her way out of what she deserved.
Her chav friends threatened me because I had stood up to their friend!!!
I just needed to get that off my chest and just want to tell everyone who doesnt know already:
--------- RASICM -------
IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE SOLUTION,
YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM
