Thought For The Day – Thursday 12th October 2023
No Room For Racism One World
Football matches in October are dedicated to the “No Room For Racism” campaign.
Before matches players will “take the knee” to show unity against racism and all other forms of negative prejudice and discrimination.
The excellent 2023 campaign video, entitled “Greatness Comes From Everywhere”, highlights the importance of diversity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHWjmVaE5LQ
Diversity empowers, enriches, includes, involves, respects and values. Equality is diversity. Diversity is equality.
We celebrated diversity yesterday with another wonderful Black History Month lunch.
The campaign video above also points to the fact that there is still work to be done, particularly with regard to “social” media, which when used exploitatively, hatefully, hurtfully, illegally, negatively and wrongly is anti-social media.
We appropriately and safely challenge, report and change racism and all other forms of negative prejudice and discrimination.
Racism and all other forms of negative prejudice and discrimination are hateful, hurtful, illegal, wrong and evil.
Life is precious and sacred and needs respected.
