Powerful new campaign about passive racism and discrimination (VIDEO)

A moving new anti-discrimination campaign has been released by beyondblue to highlight the effects passive racism have on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The message from the new campaign is: Stop. Think. Respect. “Stop the discrimination, think about how your comments or actions could cause real distress and harm, and respect people who are different from you,” the beyondblue website says.

The campaign comes following the data from a national survey which showed approximately a quarter of indigenous Australians regularly experience racial discrimination. Other research also found that up to four out of five Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders frequently experience discrimination.
