Our local paper had an article about how students at university are being asked to stamp out campus racism.
I thought it was a great idea until; I read further and found out that it was more about the characterisation of people that was being targeted and not racism. I also discover that once more the words offensive/offended were banded about with gay abandon.
For so called educated people this was pretty lame and the use of the word racism certainly sends out the wrong message especially when the phrase “a shift in Caucasian student’s attitudes would make a difference”.
Racism is when one race states they are better than another; NOT because we assume that all Chinese people eat fried rice!
