Diversity Project: Racism

  1. 1. Introduction and concept of racism Racism and racial discrimination is any and every way that imposes the superiority or inferiority among ethnic groups of a few the right to dominate or eliminate others, presumed to be inferior, or which bases value judgments based on racial differentiation. Thus the racist suppresses their civil, social, political and human. Racism is advertised from almost the entire history of mankind. Racial discrimination is a concept that is often identified with racism and embracing, although it is not exactly similar concepts. While racism is an ideology based on the superiority of one race or ethnicity over others, racial discrimination is an act which, although often based on a racist ideology, it always is. In this sense we must take into account that racial preferences (when establishing discrimination in order to ensure equality of persons affected), constitutes a form of discrimination to combat racism. Racism is often closely linked and be confused with xenophobia, ie "hatred, disgust or hostility to foreigners". However, there are some differences between the two concepts, and that racism is an ideology of superiority, while xenophobia is a feeling of rejection, and secondly xenophobia is directed only against foreigners, unlike racism. Racism is also related to other concepts with which it may sometimes be confused as ethnocentrism, caste systems (in the colonial age, most were classified in: mestizos, mulattos, , etc..), The classism, and even homophobia. Attitudes, values ​and systems established racist, overtly or covertly, a hierarchy between ethnic or racial groups, used to justify the privileges or advantages which the dominant group enjoys.
  2. 2. Relaed to: Nazi racism and the Holocaust The evolution of racist ideology in German culture had its peak development in National Socialist Movement (Nazi) led by Adolf Hitler, who won the accession of a large part of the German population in the 1930s and 1940s, to that collapsed with the defeat of Germany in World War II, in 1945. The Germans introduced all kinds of retaliation, persecution and marginalization against Jews, mainly, and against Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc.. Ghettos introduced system, which isolated the assumptions below, of the Aryan race, the Nazis soon introduced the concentration camp, where they were forced to comply with forced labor and finally executed. The Nazis introduced all sorts of racist and antisemitic propaganda, and influenced their image to the world, which came to the United States and the Ku Klux Klan. National Socialism emerged as an ideology of superiority of the "white race" and within a hypothetical supremacy "Aryan race", from which the Germans were considered its purest expression in the twentieth century. Adolf Hitler and the concept of "Greater Germany" remained an idea of concentrating the whole race "Aryan" in a State and that if there was an "Aryan" in one part of the world, Germany should conquer.
  3. 3. Outlawing Racism In 1963 he promulgated the Declaration on the Elimination of all forms of racial discrimination and is due to advances in the various sciences, especially the discovery of DNA, which scientifically affirms that all humans are equal, and the gradual decline of social obscurantism , moral and religious, that since the last quarter of the twentieth century, there is a social stigma associated with those who describe themselves as racist. The causes are various, including social and technological progress, but mainly the attention generated by the horrendous crimes committed by British and Spanish against the inhabitants of the West Indies and America, trade with European nations and African slaves created by sumistrados Arab-American against Indian nations of the continent, the Turks with the extermination of the Armenians, or Nazi Germany against Jews, Gypsies and others, and the horror caused by imperial Japan in Korea, China and elsewhere places, and advances in the socio-political achievements of African Americans in USA. So the identification of a group or person as racist have a highly negative value load. The last country has been declared officially racist South Africa in 1990 changed its apartheid system by internal and external pressures. Racism is now defined at all levels and international fora as an affront to basic human dignity and a violation of human rights. A number of international treaties have sought to end racism. The United Nations Organization (UN) uses a definition of racial discrimination established in the Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. In some countries today is penalized penalties racism among minor to major, considering this discrimination as a crime the same as in the case of sexual orientation, cultural or other characteristics. Some of the penalized with sanctions such as the collection of fines with money.
  4. 4. Racism Today You can say that racism is almost "dead", the same is banned in all countries and there are various organizations against. However, there are several groups in favor of racism that act illegally, some turn to measures of violence, such as killings, beatings, persecutions. Notably, the Skinheads, neo-Nazi groups organized in favor of racism and violence to perpetuate it, but acting illegally and in an almost hidden. There are also some groups that survived the proscription, as the Ku Klux Klan, who are marginalized by law and have about 3000 current members. But prejudice still existing in Spain and parts of Europe abounds racism and prejudice towards American and African immigrants in Argentina still existing discrimination against immigrants from neighboring countries. In Bolivia, currently called "Collas" and "Cambas are discriminated from each other. These facts, generated facts of violence such as was experienced in France in 2006, when several demonstrations in favor of the rights of foreign riots in Paris, or as well, where the 2008 violence, protests and assassinations occur in Bolivia for autonomy from the Department of Santa Cruz which reappeared the old rivalry between "Collas" and "Cambas".
  5. 5. INSTITUTIONS AGAINST RACISM Since the banning of racism and the enactment of human rights and international conventions against racism arose worldwide organizations against racism in Argentina is the INADI and is responsible for advising people to denounce discrimination discriminators and know that there is a law against racial discrimination. The UN has its anti-racism organization called: International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, established in 1969. The Convention is preceded by a number of reasons, and included 25 items divided into three parts. In the first article of the Convention defines "racial discrimination" by adopting a comprehensive approach that reaches various forms of discrimination, distinction, restriction or preference, either on account of "race, color, descent or national or ethnic origin". However, the treaty is careful to clarify that it can not be used in any way to affect the internal rules of the states on citizenship and immigration, while not discriminate against certain nationalities. Finally the convention clarifies that it is prohibited by it to take affirmative action.
