I have been to many countries throughout the world and have found Australia to be one of the most diverse and tolerant countries in the world. People who tell you otherwise have not travelled or have an agenda. I pledge to fight this crap and tell kids they have nothing to be ashamed of being whatever colour you are born, a rich kid for all the countries in the world does not get accused of being born into privilege. Its the biased teachers I am worried about because they bring their prejudice to the class and contaminate children which according to the law is child abuse.Tom Postcode: 2600

Each of us need to do our own part, if we see instances of racism, to have the balls to stand up and say no this is not on. We have laws in this country against racism.

Racism does not only damage people from different ethnicity, it also harms Australia’s international image. Reports after reports are telling us Australia is one of the most racist countries in the world, shame on us all. I have been overseas many times and have heard how the other travelers talk about how racist we are. This is pathetic. Racism also impairs our development as a country. Imagine a company that only employs white people, compared with a company that only employs the best people from all sorts of backgrounds and ethnicity, which one do you think will succeed in the modern competitive society?Alex Postcode: 2912

I pledge my support to the idea that people should always be judged by the content of their character, and never by their skin, their ethnicity, or their faith. We must fairly and accurately assess people based on true understanding, and not on the prejudices which popular culture and the misapplied education system teach us. Campbell Postcode: 3737
I work in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and am constantly amazed at the white supremest attitude that is still alive and well amongst white Australia today. Education is the way forward, reculturing our schools and the wider community by telling the truth about what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have suffered in the past, and how we white Australia enjoy success today because of the policies that were signed off by past Governments. Walking in two worlds is reality for Indigenous Australians and we need to acknowledge the past wrongs and look towards the future together. It is time to respect local cultures and knowledges and utilise the knowledge of local Elders. Get informed and by educating ourselves abolish racism from our language and thoughts. Louise Postcode: 3677
Multiculturalism is in Australia to stay and conflicts with the White Australia Policy that still lingers in the air. Hope its not for long for I pursue a happy and harmonious school life for my children. Attitudes judgements and treatment for all students within the school system must be fair and just, black blue or brindle. Teachers are responsible in playing big role for making or breaking the future of our children through the school system. The sad reality is children are judged by the colour of their skin.

I have recently undertaken a course based on Aboriginal Education and am disgusted at my lack of knowledge and understanding of what the Aboriginal people were forced to endure and still endure today. I have always considered myself a non-racist person, but now think my lack of knowledge has had me prescribe to some completely out of date thoughts. I pledge my commitment to working with students to enhance their understading of various cultures and to providing an atmosphere of inclusion for all. Brooke Postcode: 2262

I have worked for a local newspaper for over four years and have had to tolerate racist comments on a daily basis. The fact that I have 1 Aboriginal son and 11 Aboriginal grandchildren did not stop the continual derogatory words used to describe the Aboriginal people such as “Filthy Boongs” “Dirty Abbos” etc. My grandchildren have never heard those words. I resigned last week. Now I intend to write a book about how racist this country really is. Linda Postcode: 6056

racism is not only based on fear but also shows the hidden values in our society. I am horrified to see that the Anti Racism policy is not even mandatory in this country. does our government really want to get rid of racism or are there to many advantages for them to keep the people at least a bit racist. John Postcode: 2280
People who show racist behaviour are actually showing their intellectual retardedness, as only brainless people fear diversity of culture and colour. I feel sorry for racist people – they just don’t have a brain to save themselves. I do believe education in general and learning languages, philosophy, art, and music, in particular, can help fight racism. Sabine Postcode: 2430

Racism needs to be eliminated from our environment, both within schools and the wider community. To help combat racism, children need to be educated from the early years as this will go a long way towards building a community of citizens who demonstrate racial tolerance and condemn racial practices and discrimination. We need our children to be prejudice-free and to embrace diversity in all shapes and forms if we are to live in a world that promotes harmony and peace. Trish Postcode: 6028

I am a redhead and currently a relief teacher. Redheads I have recently discovered take a great deal of negative comments, ‘Ranga’ being one form of many in schools. Its not racist, but it is discriminatory… and I can see that these effects MUST be happening to people of a different race than myself. There has to be a practical solution. Out of the three schools I have worked, two of the schools have the same person hiring relief teachers as dealing with escalated student behavior. The escalation of the discriminatory comments/behavior I have escalated does create work and put pressure on already busy (in my case) assistant principals. This MUST effect my chances of being hired again, WHETHER OR NOT the assistant principal folds to that pressure… the pressure is still there. (I have written about this in length at ‘’ under the name ‘Nate’ under the link ‘Redhead Employment Discrimination’ if you’re curious as to the issue of discrimination from the perspective of a redhead.) Anyway these effects I have found can have highly negative consequences in the working environment of a relief teacher. You are pressured to not report behavior that by rights should be escalated, because you are worried that you may not be re-hired due to the fore-mentioned pressure. It is difficult to prove that the reason you haven’t been phoned for more work is down to the amount of admin work you create. Whether you are a relief teacher facing racist behavior or a relief teacher handling racist behavior… having to report to and create work for the same person that hires you causes among other things inner-conflict, a sense of isolation and potentially the non/mis-reporting of racism. I was always going to pledge my support to this site and its goals. Recent events as stated above have given me a new level of empathy for some of the issues involved. I hereby pledge my support for the goal and principles of anti-racism and discriminatory education and will work towards eliminating racism and discrimination from our schools and society as a whole. Nate Postcode: 5108

If u think about it, we are all human. the only difference between me or u and another person from a different race is just the appearance. we are all the same, we all have feelings, we all have the right to live and we all are humans that deserve respect. i think it’s silly being racist, you’re only putting negative thoughts into your head and probably the people around you, Peace out! =) Krystal Postcode: 3825
racism is terrible, no one should have to go through it, Australia is supposed to be multicultural….sure we are, but if we are so multicultural what’s the point of being this if we can’t accept other cultures… RACISM=FEAR FEAR=HATE HATE=CHAOS Steph
Racism is just one more flavour of the sad view of the world, that some people seem to hold – that sameness is good and difference is bad. I believe that diversity is a strength and that we have, in our multicultural society, a great way of learning about the complex and interesting world in which we live. All cultures, all races, all people are capable of good, we are all also capable of evil. Horrors like the that of the Holocaust and more recently, ethnic cleansing Rwanda, Middle Europe under Slobodan Milosovic, and ongong tensions in the Middle East, should remind us that if we allow ‘others’ to become less than ‘us’ we are on a slippery downward spiral to taking away people’s humanity. Such a society is not the type of society my parents came half way around the world to build, share and celebrate here in Australia. Societies that tolerate ‘them’ and ‘us’ conversations, and allow the creation of policies and laws to support such views can only anticipate distress, violence, suffering and even war. So in the interests of building a better Australia for my children and their children: I hereby pledge my support for the goal and principles of anti-racism education and will work towards eliminating racism from our schools and society as a whole.

Racism is bad,i hate it!!! Its really bad for pupils self confidence and it should NOT happen! Michalee Postcode:2905
Hi, guys! Love the site. Vincent Postcode:92844
Racism is a crude and stupid approach to people who are different from oneself. The racist is the sort of person who has no achievements of their own, and so tries to simultaneously bask in the success of others who just happen to have a similar skin colour and project their inadequacies onto those with different skin colour. Keep up the great work! Leon Postcode: 2042

racism is so not cool. we should stop all the cruelty and fighting. Jesika Postcode:2460
We should all take responsibility for the racism in our own minds, our classrooms, our schools, our communities. Being simply nice or tolerant of one another is not multiculturalism.

I think tougher anti-racism laws must be out in place to ensure we can live in a melting-pot of races and cultures in this wonderfully diverse country which is so accepting (most of the time) and lovely, primarily because Australia was built on Multiculturalism. The aborigines need more support as well, and the government needs to raise taxes to get more money out to the aborigines and refugees, and also ethnic councils. Islam must be welcome as well. Multiculturalism benefits us all. Monoculturalism doesn’t work, we NEED multiculturalism. Muhammed
We must teach our future generations the downside to ethnocentrism, and encourage integrated societies to rid communities of ethnic stereotypes. The Justice system needs to emphasize social justice for individual equality to prevail. Our society as a whole still has a long way to go, especially the media. We must teach our children to avoid racial stereotyping and also about the social factors that lead to such execrable consequences. Tim Postcode:37132
Racism is the root of all evil in our society. A multicultural society is what makes Australia such a unique and special place to live. Every culture, race, religion in human society needs to be cherished for its individuality. Saying no to racism is the the start towards the fight for peace on earth! Erin Postcode:2223

Eradicating racism in our schools and communities is of the most paramount importance. Each child needs equal opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and accepting environment. When the seeds of tolerance are planted in a child, the message spreads through their families and into the wider community. As a student studying to be a teacher, I think a focus on anti-racism education initiatives in schools is crucial in fostering tolerance in a wider Australian context. Alicia Postcode:6153
As a high school teacher I am committed to eliminating racist thinking amongst the students I teach. We are a predominantly anglo saxon community but people fear what they don’t know and form stereotypes about people who look or act differently. Through many activities, including simulation games, I am seeing a positive change in my students understanding and I believe that many of them will stand up against racism in years to come.

Hello, I am 12 years old and I want people to understand that you can’t discriminate against people just because they have a different culture, skin color, religion or anything.

I wanted to pledge my support for RACISM. NO WAY! and am heartened to see so much good information, especially the school activities, on your website. It would be my wish that every person, of every race could feel the beauty in the difference each of us brings to make up a human world, that we could express that appreciation to each other instead of fear and ignorance that makes me feel ashamed to be ‘white’. Imagine our sadness if the music was only in one key -if we were a world where all the flowers were only one colour – if the food we ate only had one spice – there is the absurdity of racism.

Racism is stupid. Three of my best friends are Asian and African, but I don’t care. They are very nice people. Just because they have different coloured skin to me doesn’t mean that they are aliens or something and I think it is wrong what the white people did to the Aborigines and I hope it will get sorted out fully.

Racism should be stamped out at every opportunity possible. There is no place for racism on this planet anymore and definitely not within the bounds and borders of this great country of ours Australia. So if you choose to be racist find another home. This is Australia. We are ONE but we are definitely MANY and from ALL the lands on Earth we come. Racism will not and should not be tolerated.

I think that racism is ridiculous as we are all one! i think that a good idea for schools, and even communities should do, is maybe to hold festivals for all of different race so we could acknowledge them, they could have days where people from each culture could bring in native food from their countries, so everyone can be a part of different cultures. schools should work on racism by reinforcing rules such as if being bullied (being teased for their race) serious consequences will be faced. communities based can really work on racism by helping people understand cultures, maybe by providing more information. Racism is extremely bad and we should all work together to put a stop to it. Lilyrose Postcode: 2137

Don’t judge people for what they look like, what their last name is, or other things like that. just accept them for who they are and not by the critical things which the media says about their background. embrace their culture and you’ll enjoy more than you thought. give them the respect that you would want if the situation was reversed.

As we have seen and experienced, racism doesn’t just stop at the individual level, but can, and mostly does, lead to something much bigger.

Racism needs to be eliminated from society as a whole. Media outlets such as news and a current affairs programs have no right to instigate racial issues as a selling point. Definitions of ‘Australians’ being exclusively caucasian are also wrong.

For the children who still suffer from the effects of Racism, please don’t lose sight of your talents and the value of your cultural diversity. I was born in Vietnam and immigrated to Australia at 3 years old. As a child, I too was teased emotionally and abused physically and that affected my self-esteem and questioned my self-identity. I tried to ignore all forms of racism and focused my energy in doing my best in school, going to university, getting a job, contributing to society, building a happy family and help others less fortunate. The most important lesson growing up was to value my culture and not allow others make me feel ashamed about my culture. Despite the slow process, I think we are moving forward in the process of eradicating racism. Tram Postcode: 2870

As a newly trained teacher I believe it critical and imperative that I eliminate racism in my classrooms and beyond them. Martin Postcode:3181
I feel that in these increasngly conservative times in Australia it is very important to communicate clearly through whole school approaches in our schools, through the actions of principals, teachers and students the message that racism in any form is not acceptable. The message starts from the individual. Rani Postcode:2043

This page is great. u do a very good job. regards from Austria Johanna Postcode:6922
I think the Racism, NO WAY page rocks!! I especially like Joannes (13) graffiti on the Graffiti wall with the two white and black people holding hands. I think it gets the message across very clearly!! I agree and think that adults who are racist should be put behind bars! I also think that it should not be allowed in the school ground either. I think the person who is being racist should be sent to the Princapal and have their parents called and told about their behavior. I myself have a black person in my class and when people are racist towards her i try my hardest to stick up for her. She is a very nice peson!! I think Racism should be illegal!! Thats all for now!

hey guys… racism is wrong and anyone who participates in it really needs to work out why because it is wrong. the people you are discriminating against are no different from you. they just share different beliefs and cultures and im sure that if you got to no these people and spent time with them, you would learn to love their cultures and beliefs or you no hate them. we are not saying you have to agree with their ways of life but there is no need to make fun of them be rude or anything like that to them, because they are from a different race and background to you…if you are thinking that you get nothing out of this you are wrong. you get to make a new friend..:) guys. lets stop racism . its wrong and hurtful.. if you take some time to get to know them and their ways you might learn to love them!!!

Everyone is beautiful in their own way and getting to spend time with people from different backgrounds can be heaps of fun! you can learn their beliefs and ways of life. it doesnt mean you always have to agree or like them. Rasicm is wrong, make it stop! Spend some time with the people you are hurting with the things you are saying to them, seriously, i’m sure you will find you have a lot of things in common and you’ll also find yourself a new friend… love Kiera and Melis!!!

Racism is one of the worst things on this earth. We all have to realise that everyone is the same on the inside. Everyone has rights everywhere. We have to respect everyone and their culture. The world would be a better place if we didn’t have racism. We would have more smiling faces and less sad ones. Being a racist is a very disgusting thing to be. You can’t judge people by their skin colour or culture. You might find that they are very nice. Racism needs to STOP!!! The world is what we make it! Jordon Postcode: 0870

Racism is a disgusting act that still happens around the world. We came on the world as individuals different with all our personalities, hobbies and talents but he only thing people judge is colour. If people were to judge why not personalities, or thinking or anything else. Why is it that our thoughts travel towards what we see, physically. I take a pledge to support all people in difficult times who get bullied with racism and take a chance to treat everyone equally.

I pledge to become an ally of anti-racism in schools. I hope that I can help to support my fellow classmates who have experienced, or are still experiencing, microaggression and blatant racism in schools. The worst feeling is when the racist teacher/student is unaware of their xenophobic actions and claim to be ‘fair’ and that we should learn from them as they are in positions of authority. I believe that tackling institutionalised racism is achieved through the masses, and holding racist persons truly accountable and make them aware of their wrongdoings. No student should ever be disadvantaged, especially for their rich cultural history and non-Caucasian appearances. Tackling all racism starts at the foundations of education and I hope to support RacismNoWay in any way. Valerie Postcode: 2267

I think racism is rude & hurtful. You can’t stereotype a religion based on one person, not all people are terriosts. Nobody should have to harass cultures or people of color because they have gone through stuff you may not have. People of color and & other cultures are beautiful and unique in there way. You don’t have to agree but you can respect them as they do you. Kaitlynn Postcode: 55308
Racism stops with us. I am optimistic that racism will cease. The world said NO to Nazism and Racism in 1945. The Apartheid fell in 1994.

I have been in high-school for almost 3 years now and in that time, I have witnessed numerous events of racist comments and just in general racism. Our school isn’t that big and that just goes to show that no matter how small or big the school, racism is still present in our everyday environment. I myself have never been targeted and I hope it will stay that way. But I’ve been bullied against for other reasons and I hate the feeling.

I encourage everyone to get involved and work for a better Australia because I for one want my future children to grow up in a world of peace and mutual respect, not hatred and violence.

I am currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Primary Education and undertaking Studies of Indigenous Australia. Through this subject and awareness programs such as Racism No Way I have come to recognise racism as an historic and varied societal problem which needs to be addressed on an individual as well as institutional level. As a future teacher, inclusion issues are something that have never been far from my mind. I believe cohension among individuals within the school community and wider society are essentially the foundation for success and function among people and groups. Thank you to all the people helping to shed light on this issue and eradicate it in the process. Alisa Postcode: 4211

I am sure Australia is not that, Australia is a winner and will stay as a winner.

Racism, xenophobia, and intolerance are problems prevalent in all societies. But every day, each and every one of us can stand up against racial prejudice and intolerant attitudes. There is no place in society for racism. No one is better or greater than the other, we are all human beings. Sadly for some, you need to remind them, time and time again. We all need to work together to weed out this evil. What is concerning for me, is how in society today we have become so cunning in the way we speak, and use words. Some think they are clever, when they put other PEOPLE down, based on race, but the truth is they are really ignorant and stupid. Education is so important and I believe we all need to do our part, to weed out racism. If you hear or see someone using or saying derogatory terms or language, pull them up, or report them , to authorities. Racism is not on, in any quantity. I am fed up and sick of racism. it is everywhere and something needs to be done to stop it. it ruiens peoples lives. we are all the same, we all bleed the same colour. no matter if your black or white, we are all human. we should all be treated the same. racism needs to end. i pledge to pledge to be against racism, help towards stopping it and helping others see that racism is evil and isnt needed. its wrong.Jasmine Postcode: 2010223

The deep knowledge and findings in the diverse cultures around the world gives us all a deeper appreciation of our own lives. To risk losing that is to risk losing a part of our own selves. We choose fear over growth, competition over collaboration, focusing on divides rather than comparing notes. This is our world, for our children. Tolerate? no lets not tolerate. For the word tolerate almost sounds like one has to give something up to make space for something else. How about giving thanks to creation for opening up so many places in ones space. How can we not…Abhishek Postcode: 4020

I looked at why I had racist views in certain areas. I sat down and reflected on why I felt like this and began to challenge where my views came from.

Absolutely tired of the casual racism that pervades life in Australia. Stereotyping is not funny, it is depersonalizing and destructive. I’m also tired of being called uptight if I object to it. It is not necessary, people are people, let’s get that message out there!Susanna Postcode: 2042

I have been living in Australia for 15 years having to escape after the Iraq war between 1990-1992 and finally settling here. I had my fair share of racism when we started to settle in our new home that made things difficult but these days, people are becoming more aware of different cultures and religions. I think in order to eliminate racism, you have to start with the younger generations and educate them about thease issues. I think what your organisation is doing is fantastic and it will make the future generations more aware and informed.Omar Postcode: 2170
Hello. I’m in a school group called Peer Helpers. In this group, we learn about how to help fellow peers and learn to fight against things like violence, drugs, gangs and racism. Race is a big deal at my middle school. The Whites stay with the Whites, the Mexicans with the Mexicans and the Blacks with the Blacks. This isn’t much of a comment, but more of a question. I would like to help my school fight against racism. Peer Helpers helps a lot but we still need more support from some kind of program that can help my fellow students get rid of racism. I used to be racist against Whites, but I have now overcome that by being more aware that race is no reason for discrimination. I am discriminated against daily because of my race. The so called Skinheads or Whites drive by with their friends, parents/guardians and families. Racism isn’t right. A lot of people act as if they’re not Hispanic, Black or White so they don’t get discriminated against. This needs to stop. You should be proud of where you come from and your background and help fight racism. Lizeth Postcode: 92595
