Hi, my name is Tracey.
I didn't know much about racism until I met a friend.
She told me all about racism
and how she experienced racism.
For example she was being teased because of;
That's when I learnt about racism and that there are many different ways that people can be racist.
- the colour of her skin.
- her culture.
Because she is an Aboriginal she thought that she was meant to
be called names and be treated this way.
She knew she needed to stop
these people but she wanted somebody to help her to do it.
So she came to me and explained every thing. She was very upset
and needed my help.
I gave her some advice.
These are some examples of my advice;
So she went to all of those cultural places. After a
couple of weeks she felt like a new person.
- Go to cultural awareness.
- Go to Naidoc Week.
- You could just get to know your culture more.
Now she has gained all of her self esteem back. She
said to me that she could take on the world.
So if you are being harassed teased or in any
way that you think
is racism go to someone for help.
Or you can go to those cultural places. Maybe you will
feel like a new person too.
