It's a strange situation we have here in F1 because oddly we have the campaign to end racism running alongside the diversity campaign. which by definition is racist.
The times have moved on a bit, Jezza. The ideal of colour-blind being anti-racist is done. The newer initiatives want racial discrimination taken into account because ethnicity was tied to nationality for so long. History has been a trauma conga for any country that isn't a technologically advanced, imperialist country.
The legacy of those horrific atrocities need to be recognised if we are ever going to create a world where people reach their fullest potential.
They’ve been recognised. There’s barely anyone alive who would deny the North Atlantic slave trade was bad for black people. I don’t know what more people expect in that regard.
I don’t have the experience working with children that asphalt has but what I’m seeing a lot of is reinforcing negative stereotypes. The message to younger black children almost seems to be that you can’t succeed because the world is against you. There aren’t more black drivers because of their colour, black people cant succeed because of some statues, the world is biased against you because of a centuries old slave trade. These are negative inferences which need to be discarded, not dwelled upon.
At the risk of going Godwin’s law, there’s no animosity between Brits and Germans over a brutal conflict which happened far more recently. We forgive, we move on, we don’t talk about it and the world much the better for that.
Good lord where does one start with this?
Imagine thinking fighting the Nazi was a british thing, the ignorance is shocking.
In 2020 a policeman knelt on a mans neck even after him being in handcuffs and remained on his neck for 2mins 44secs after he had passed away that it was the paramedics that told him to get up.
It is still legal to lynch a black person in America as of today.
In Georgia a man black man jogging was hunted like an animal and killed the killers were not arrested until there was a protest.
Underfunding of black communities, Tulsa Oklahoma where the black wall street as it was dubbed was burnt down whilst the police stood back.
They need to keep banging on this to educate people like you as to avoid this kind of mentality passing on to the next generation.
