Its Hard to See Racism When You're White

The its hard to see racism video and images were produced by the Unfair Campaign to make people become more aware of Racism and to start talking about it.

Racism is an issue that we don’t like talking about. The Un-Fair Campaign was developed to look at racism and to encourage a community dialogue about the causes and solutions.

Racism is a complex social issue and depending upon what you see as the causes of racism you have ideas about the solutions.

We invite you to spend time on this website and to ask yourself how you may be part of the problem as well as part of the solution.

See it. Know it. Stop it.

This message was culled from the Unfair Campaign Website.

Below is the campaigns video.

  1. Is it only white people who can be racists? It seems to me that American blacks are the biggest group of racists there are on planet earth, pointing fingers at all others and crying racist for any perceived slight!!!! American blacks even categorize their own people using racist rhetoric using terms like shine, nigger and pass!! American blacks couldn’t interact with any other race for an hour without playing the race card! Something that you would never hear a pastor of any other race harp on is what race Jesus was, and yet I’ve been in majority black churches where the pastor purposely talked about the race of Jesus, mentioning it more than a dozen times prior to the message, and he wasn’t even the preacher delivering the message that morning; I was, as a guest.

    I was raised in the deep south during the 1950s and 1960s. I saw the discrimination, the separate restrooms, the separate water fountains, the “separate but equal” schools, and yet my parents taught me that there is no one that I am superior to. I have spent much of my adult life working in cultures and countries where I, a white man, was the minority and yet I have never felt as though I were a better person, a higher class individual or more deserving than any other man or woman around.

    I can tell you, however, that any man, white, black, green or purple, who comes out attacking me with preconceived ideas of how I am just because of my skin color, will not find me open to embracing him, his ideas, or his needs. As a white man, married to a black woman for over 40 years, and now living in Alabama I know what it is like to be discriminated against because of skin color. We both get it from all races. So until you can walk in our shoes, where neither the black or white community is an accepting haven for you, then you have no idea what discrimination is all about. Therefore, this whole “un-fair campaign”, with its attacking me because I’m white is just as repugnant as you attacking any black man for being black! Your Mayor Don Ness, and your whole un-fair organization, should be ashamed of yourselves because you are the true racists!!!!

    • I agree racism comes from both ways but such talk will not solve the problem. We need to start seeing each other as a people instead of only looking at our skin colours and other differences. Lets start looking a our similarities instead of our differences. How long do we want to go on this way? How long?

  2. When a people has been oppressed for so many years, they loose their self confidence and everything that goes with it.
