I have watched in shock what happened to george floyd.
It is sad, so, so sad. I cannot believe some human beings, the lengths they will go to to show their hatred for others.
If you think racism is just in the US, you’d be so wrong!
Ireland now has a thriving black community, people have come here from many countries, including nigeria, cameroon, and lots of others.
I heard a show on the radio the other morning, they were talking about racism, and a 26 year old nigerian girl came on. She’d been in ireland since she was 14, and she said she gets racist comments every day when she’s out and about just trying to live her life.
No there are no protests here, but racism is definitely alive and kicking.
Its such a sad situation!
I do think though, that todays generation of kids are much more accepting of peoples skin color. They are just kinder, and I know for my niece, whose 12 she has black kids in her class, and she’s friends with them, she just accepts them for who they are which is how it should be.
