"Overcoming racism compels us to address public policies and private attitudes that perpetuate it. On this International Day, I call on Member States, international and non-governmental organizations, the media, civil society and all individuals to engage meaningfully in the promotion of the International Year for People of African descent – and to work together against racism whenever and wherever it occurs."
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

Elimination of Racial Discrimination 2011
Just about says it all I feel but racism goes far beyond just people of African descent. It affects all races sadly
Thanks for the link. With all the hell happening around the Mediterranean and in Japan just now this could have been so easily overlooked. TBH I only just saw the thread myself.
