These individuals have experienced anti-black racism as well as islamaphobia, and the film explores the crossover between the two forms of discrimination.

Raising the issue of inter-minority racism, like discussions around colourism, is a painful process, and it’s important to remember that these ‘hierarchies’ arise within a bigger, overarching power structure of white privilege.

While those interviewed speak of suffering from anti-black racism from other Muslims, there is also a commonality of experience, with one noting that ‘many Muslims complain of stop and search and profiling. As a black man I went through that long before I became a Muslim‘.

By sharing these experiences, and  understanding that racism and islamaphobia arise through similar processes we can unite to overcome all forms of prejudice.

Wisdom to End Racism http://www.end-racism.org/film/980/ http://www.end-racism.org/film/980/#comments Thu, 29 May 2014 16:20:04 +0000 http://www.end-racism.org/?post_type=film&p=980 Find out more...]]> This short film, published in May 2014, looks at the important contribution of minority ethnic older people in the UK to the fight against racism:

  • “We need a movement led by young people, drawing on older people as a frame of reference.”
  • “We need to get older people and younger people together to share ideas”

Runnymede Trust urges schools and communities to organise inter-generational events that unpick the root causes of racism and how to dismantle it.  Make your pledge here.

This video was produced with funding from a European Commission DG-Justice Progress Anti-Discrimination Action Grant. Many thanks to all the participants and to Age UK, who supported Runnymede in the production of this film.

Race and Dementia http://www.end-racism.org/film/774/ http://www.end-racism.org/film/774/#comments Tue, 10 Dec 2013 12:12:15 +0000 http://www.end-racism.org/?post_type=film&p=774 Find out more...]]> Dementia doesn’t care about the person. We should.

Dementia affects nearly 25,000 people from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups in the UK. The population makeup of the UK means that these numbers will only increase with time.

This film explores the double discrimination and how the current system fails to address the unique issues faced by BME people with dementia.

When Racism and Sexism Collide http://www.end-racism.org/film/698/ http://www.end-racism.org/film/698/#comments Mon, 21 Oct 2013 11:43:26 +0000 http://www.end-racism.org/?post_type=film&p=698 Find out more...]]> On Friday the 11th of October, an audience gathered in Bristol’s Hydra Books to explore life at the intersection of structural racism and endemic sexism. The evening saw the debut viewing of the End Racism campaign’s new short film, When Racism and Sexism Collide.

The audience watched three short films before hearing from a panel of speakers, including Dr Jude Smith Rachele, who organised the London premiere of US film Dark Girls, writer Reni Eddo-Lodge, Nimco Ali, co-founder of Bristol based organisation Daughters of Eve, and Lia Latchford from black feminist organisation Imkaan.

The rest of the films screened at the evening are available to watch online – Shadeism, and BME female unemployment.

On the panel, Nimco Ali, spoke about her work advocating for the rights of young women who suffer from the practice of female genital mutilation. She explained that the maze of advocacy often involves dealing with schools who dismiss the practice as cultural rather than violent, this implicit racism often hindering the rights of women and girls who undergo this abuse.

Lia Latchford detailed the specifics of Imkaan’s latest project, Rewind and Reframe. She discussed how the organisation aids young women to challenge the content of racist and sexist music videos. Lia spoke about equipping young women with the tools to critically asses the content of popular culture that routinely objectifies black women, and called on the audience to question the profitable nature of racist and sexist discrimination in music.

With contributions from both the panel and the floor focusing heavily on popular culture, Dr Jude Smith Rachele reminded the room that it was not just in the arts that black women should demand fair representation. Speaking from decades of experience consulting on business ethics and corporate responsibility as CEO of Abundant Sun, Jude spoke of the scarcity of black talent in business, the barriers to progress and how to change the landscape.

A lively discussion and debate saw the topics of race and gender based discrimination cover cultural appropriation, class, aspiration black unemployment, internalised racism and lots more.

Have you ever felt discriminated against because of your race and gender? How do racialised, gendered stereotypes affect your day to day life?
