Laundry is the only thing that should be seperated by colour

Extracts from this document...


Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by colour. Discuss. Racism is a form of discrimination based on race, especially the belief that one race is superior to another. Racism takes place in many different forms. These can include personal attacks of any kind, including violence, written or verbal threats or insults, being ignored or left out, being teased, being forced to do things you don't want to and damage to property including graffiti amongst many others.

In conclusion, there is never an excuse for being racist. It is a hundred percent wrong in any shape or form, and most racists act in such a way because deep down they have issues with themselves. However, no one should have to suffer such pain and hurt simply because they are a different colour. No one should ever be out casted or separated for such reasons; the only thing separated by colour should be laundry. Kerry Harrison 5A (Quotes are taken from Childline website) ...read more.
