End Racism Day!

Today, is International Day of Elimination of Racial Discrimination (IDERD), or End Racism Day, established by the United Nations in 1966 to acknowledge the Sharpeville Massacre of 1960. Let it also be a day to remember the victims of Paris, Quebec City, Charlottesville, and Christchurch.

The deadly attack in New Zealand is the latest terror attack that clearly shows that the dangers of white nationalism are not limited to the United States. It is a reminder that such acts have a global impact. Every incident driven by bigotry, discrimination, and racism, was planned with a purpose meant to divide people – not just in our homeland, but globally.

Today, the United Nations urged politicians and world leaders to stand up against racial discrimination and intolerance. Change won’t happen overnight, but we, every one of us, must stand up and fight intolerance and the violence it generates. We must make every effort to nurture global citizenship. We must no longer turn a blind eye.
