Rebel Racism Before Retaliation.
This petition had 178 supporters
It has been twenty three years after the apartheid, yet we continue to find that racism is more prevalent in our communities. Twenty three years, in counting, as a democratic country why is that we still experience racism in schools, communities and our country? The racism may not be as blatant as it was twenty three years ago. However, today it is subtle and covered in micro-aggressions. Racism is racism and all forms of racism need to be called out to ensure we better ourselves as a country.
As students from schooling instacross the country we call for all students in each and every province in South Africa to support the elimination of systematic and individual racial injustices that students face on a daily bases, school codes of conduct that get in the way of students living and practicing their cultures as they should and school systems which tend to be discriminative against ones race, religion and culture.
Through this petition we hope to achieve the following:
1.The modification in current schooling systems to ensure that in various discriminatory cases dealing with racism is handled with care and sensitivity. To ensure the victim receives justice and the perpetrator faces the consequences put in place.
2. To ensure that there is zero tolerance for racism, discrimination and inequality in schools, such as their being a lack of option for additional African languages and Akrikaans being compulsory in certain schools.
3. To ensure that schools are an open minded environment in which students with the staff can speak about social injustices freely without facing any consequences.
4. To eliminate school rules or policies that go against the diversity of this country and have an ignorant nature towards gender identity, race, religion etc.
You can be part of this movement by signing up on the petition.
