Racism is a system of discrimination based on race. It manifests in the form of discriminatory practices in everyday life, such as in housing, education, employment, and the criminal justice system.

Racism is also evident when race is used as a factor in decisions made about who to hire, how to judge the worth of an individual, or in social attitudes and interactions. Racism can be subtle or overt, intentional or unintentional.

It exists throughout the world and takes many different forms. Well, looking back South Africa used to be one of the most racist countries on earth at some point in time, and that was because of the law we had back then, which is the Apartheid law, that separated black people from mixing with white people.

Of course, we have come a long way since those years, but is racism gone? Well, we’ve been seeing multiple videos of racist people getting exposed on social media platforms, so what do we say about that?

Well, there has been a video that has been trending all over social media platforms such as Twitter, and Tik Tok which is the platform which the video originated from. The video has gotten retweeted multiple times and has even gotten the attention of some South African celebrities such as Robert Marawa.

The video shows a family that seems to be taking family photos with a pastor, and a baby boy happens to run into the picture but the pastor is seen pushing the boy away as they are taking images.

A lot of people did not take this well, as most went on the comments to voice out their thoughts, some people thought that it was racist for the Pastor to push away the child like that, and some were saying that the Pastor was pushing the child away simply because the child was getting into a family photo and he is not part of that family.

Well, there is something we have to keep in mind, and that is the fact that these are family photos, meaning the family could have only wanted their family in the photo. So we cannot be sure if that moment was racially motivated.
