Introduction
Racism takes many forms and can happen in many places. It includes prejudice,
discrimination, or hatred directed at someone because of their color, ethnicity, or
national origin. People often associate racism with acts of abuse or harassment.
However, it doesn’t need to involve violent or intimidating behavior. Racism is evident in
our country which is philippines. People doesn’t even aware about what racism is, thus,
Racism is like being normalize in our country. A huge number of people taking racism
as a joke and most of the innocent victims are people with black skin. They are the
center of bullying and most of the time leads to violence. But how can we eliminate
racism if most of the people living here is not even aware and mindless about what
racism is.
History of the Problem
Racism, also called racialism, the belief that humans may be divided into separate
and exclusive biological entities called “races”; that there is a causal link between
inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural
and behavioral features; and that some races are innately superior to others (Audrey S,
2021).one way that slavers justified their exploitation of Black people was through
eugenics. Literally this means “good birth” and can be seen in the ideology that one is
superior to another, most notably in Aryanism. This belief is what eventually led to the
construction of races and, in turn, racism. White Europeans used this belief, and later a
believed science, to validate the inferiority of Black people and “keep clean” white
lineage (Galton, 1973).2020 has seen antiracism movements gain momentum and push
back against institutionalism racism. However, despite the progress made, individualism
and fragmentation continue to undermine solidarity and to depoliticize antiracism
struggles (Azfar S, 2020)

Extent of the Problem
Racism is evident all over the world including our country philippines. The
people most affected by racism are people with black skin and also those people with
cultural diverse background. They often discriminate and they are the center of
bullying. Even at school, those kids with black skin they often bullied by their
classmates and schoolmates and that scenario is normal in some school. However, that
kind of situation have a lot of negative impact for those racism victims, especially to
children’s. Base on (2015 meta-analysis) people who experience racism are more likely
to develop different mental health issue such as depression, stress, emotional distress,
anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicidal thoughts. Racism is
associated with higher rates of stress, increasing a person of color’s risk of developing
high blood pressure. In fact, the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) or
(CDC)Trusted Source report that Black people are more likely to have hypertension than
any other racial or ethnic group. Stress as a result of racism can also lead to behaviors
that may cause further risk to physical health. For example, base on research of
PudMed Central has found that discrimination is linked to higher rates of smoking,
alcohol use, drug use, and unhealthful eating habits.
Effects of the problem
Being treated differently or unfairly because of our race, skin color or
ethnicity can negatively affect our mental health. Racism can happen anywhere. It can
happen at school, at work, or at home; it can happen online or outside; it can even
happen within families and relationships. As a person of color, you’re far more likely to
experience negative life events such as poverty, unemployment, incarceration, or
abuse. More sinister even are the health problems caused by acute and chronic stress
on people who are subjected to racial othering and overt racial discrimination. The
trauma of humiliation caused by racism creates recurrent stress in individuals, families
and wider communities. These stresses manifest in manifold ways, and often transcend
generations. Also Racism could cause hatred and it also leads to superiority of other
races especially to those who believe that they are all higher and superior from other

races and it also the root cause of killing in other countries, where the so-called inferior
races are easily prejudiced by white superiority. Sometimes racism also creates biased
judgment and treatment to other people. According to PhD. Shawn Utsey he examined
how trauma manifests in racial violence. In his featured article, Utsey discussed the
ways in which culture and contextual resources can be used to buffet against the
deleterious effects of race related stress.
Possible Future Solutions
Racism is a world wide issue which until now is still existing. It seems like it
inevitable because almost everyday we encounter scenario of racism, However some of
this scenario we didn't know that it is an act of racism because of lack of knowledge
about racism. That is why most of the people are not aware about their actions that
they do some racist action towards someone without him/her knowing it because of
being mindless about racism. Therefore, the first step on eliminating racism is to
educate all people. In that way, they will be able to know about difference between a
jokes and racism because the thing that they thought is just a joke and don't take it
seriously is already a racism and caused a huge impact to someone. Second, let us use
our social media accounts and platforms for good. Do not un friend racist people,
Instead, publicly challenge the bigoted opinions they express and do it repeatedly.
Because changing someone's mind takes time and your online engagement could
educate dozen of silent bystanders. Remember that racialized people can and should
react emotionally to racism because it is harming them. Third, let us normalized and let
us be comfortable saying “that is racist”. Don’t be afraid to call or racist policies, power
demands, and comments every time, while small action may not immediately change
system or minds, it will open the conversation that lead to change. Fourth, let us seek
out learn from apology Black voices. Choose and share books, arts, articles, and anti
racism discourse created by black and racialized people. Lastly, let us make ourselves
as a role model to everyone and let us promote equality to everyone so that everyone
would a peaceful and beautiful life.
