Greetings

A few days ago, in response to my post about the 8-year-old bi-racial boy who had nearly been lynched by a group of teens, I received a comment from a man named Tim, who recently started a blog to enhance awareness and to encourage people to stand up against racism of all forms. I checked out his blog, and was very impressed with what I saw there. Tim was born in China and moved to Australia as a young child, where he has been the victim of racism on a frequent basis. Today I would like to share his blog with my readers, for I believe it has value for us all. Thank you all for taking a moment to check out this blog, and thank you, Tim, for allowing me to share your work!

Rise up against Public Racism

Whether you are a friend from Facebook, a social activist or just someone passing by โ€ฆ greetings! ๐Ÿ™‚

Firstly thank you for all your support on this particular issue โ€“ especially a big thanks to those who have been following and commenting on the posts. Your contribution means a lot โ€“ not only in bringing encouragements but also feedbacks that has helped me to think further about how to tackle the social problem.

Now I think itโ€™s time to share a little bit about who I am and why I decided to start this campaign in the first place.

Iโ€™m a student born in China and moved to Sydney during primary school. Since a few years back, my family and I are proud to be called Australian citizens. Even till now however, Iโ€™ve been called out by strangers for my skin colour and appearance on a close to monthly basisโ€ฆ

    • Yes, it certainly does need to be kept in the forefront of the conversation, which is why I was happy to see this young man start his blog. I hope he doesn’t get discouraged, for it takes time and effort to build a readership, but I believe his heart is in the right place. We need as many as possible shining a light into the dark corners and calling a spade a bloody shovel! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hugs!!!
