Compassionate Action project
One of the issues in our community is racism, judging people by their skin colour is wrong and we should act upon this and should stop this. I believe our video should get out there and hopefully other people can also react upon this issue. What is being done about this is just really some occasional adverts on the television which is a little poor ubut maybe to see real significance you would have to do adverts on the big screen in the cinema and just pop up adverts on your computer so it gets the racism name out there. Our focus in this project was to highlight the issues about racism what people have to suffer and how stupid judging people on their colour or religion, people should be allowed to be who they are and I hope the video helps people be this racism is bad. I am trying to show in my video the problems and sadness of racism and that people will acknowledge that there are good people and that there is nothing wrong them and they should only be judged on their personality. One in 5 people in Australia have experienced racism, 70% of teenagers have experienced racism, whether the racism is verbal abuse or violence it shouldn’t happen and theses figures are difficult to look at. It’s a shame that in Australia people have to suffer this abuse. I am trying to achieve people’s understanding and compassion of how difficult racism is and how difficult people people lives can be. I will achieve this by by showing how difficult it is and what a tough world it is out there and how some people do it really hard and we just have to be grateful for what what we have and who we are and who you can be. The Compassionate action project will be hard to evaluate because racism is such a big issue but if one person stops being mean or thinks about not saying something racist then its successful. I would like to think people could just think they’re being funny when they say something racist and not really think about what iritis they are saying and when they see the video they might think I can’t say that sort of thing again because I’m being racist. Any improvement and anyway people can feel better about themselves is an improvement people just need education.
