Racism assumes racial superiority. I don't see that in this image.
I dream of the day people won't see a black girl being leaned on, but simply a girl...
Ironically, the people who call themselves 'anti-racist,' in their constant obsession with race and perceived racism, are making that day look depressingly distant.
the only way you could find this racist would be to desire to see racial significance in everything, which in itself is not what somebody who isn't racist sees. kind of the opposite.
Here are just a few statistics:
More than a third — some 38%, a staggering 4.2 million — of Black children nationwide live in poverty.
• One in every three black males born today can expect to go to prison at some point in their life. *Police discriminate. *The first step in putting people in jail starts with interactions between police and people. *From the very beginning Black and poor people are targeted by the police. *Police departments have engaged in campaigns of stopping and frisking people who are walking, mostly poor people and people of color, without cause for decades.
• *Black drivers are 31 percent more likely to be pulled over than white drivers and Hispanic drivers are 23 percent more likely to be pulled over than white drivers. *Connecticut, in an April 2015 report, reported on 620,000 traffic stops which revealed widespread racial profiling, particularly during daylight hours when the race of driver was more visible. *
• In every stage of the justice system statistically black people are discriminated against.
• In schools, African American kids are much more likely to be referred to the police than other kids.
• Black children can be high achievers and we know this because hundreds do so every year. But when exam results data is compiled the statistics are undeniable: black children are trailing behind every other racial group despite having exactly the same talent and potential. Clearly, there is something happening within society, possibly the home and, most crucially, within our schools that is holding them back.
• Young men, particularly young black men, are commonly stereotyped as engaging in criminal behaviour.Past research shows that the media misrepresents the picture of crime and that stories involving violent and sexual offenses are over-reported beyond the official statistics
• The total number of racist and religious hate crimes across London rose by almost 28 per cent last year, from 9,965 reported incidents to 12,749.
using the term underrepresented was putting it nicely...
Not racist at all, the only people who find this racist are the ones that can find racism in the stupidest places.
I mean sure if she had a whip and chains yeah that is racist but this is just a simple pose. Been done with white people before been done with other races before. Really does not matter
Anyone that calls this racist is quite clearly looking for an argument for the sake of an argument.
Oh! Oh! Pick me! I know why its racist. The white girl is placing her shoulder on the black girl's head. That means the white girl thinks she better than her, and represents keeping the black girls "down".
No. Not really. The white girl is just tall so I can guess the director just told her to place her shoulder on the black chick. Wasn't the advert of a black girl placing her shoulder or hand on a white girl or something? I remember seeing them two compared. Didn't anyone notice the other girls doing weird poses?
