My name is Sky. I just moved to Africa with my family. We came here so my parents could help out at the orphanage, and adopt some of the kids as well. Im starting a new school and nobody looks like me.
Ooo. This is scary. Ive never been in a private school until now and all the kids look at me weird. In Africa this is one of the schools, in the wealthier parts . I thought that it would mean that they wanted me more, but thats not the case.
Hey can I sit by you guys?
We don't allow whities.
Racism:prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.
Yeah, Im going to be honest with you. You will not be accepted. At least at this school. Its the way they've been raised.
Hey, are you okay?
Ya, people just judge me differently because I don't look like all of you, and Im not the same race as all of you
Oh. Im sorry. How about I go to the school tomorrow, and negotiate with the principal? I cant go until 2:00 pm, because I will be at the orphanage, so before then you will be on your own. Remember to be respectful and assertive. Especially be understanding.
Hey honey, how was your day?
Not good. People wouldn't let me sit by them at lunch and everyone was looking at me weird.
Be understanding: Some times people are racist to them too.
My mom came in and we told him how the kids were treating me. He said that in the past there have been other kids that looked liked me. They were racist to the other kids. Then we made ways that we could advocate for racism
Principal: Mr. G
Ways to stop racism: Be Supportive Humans are humans. Be nice to everyone.
