How you can help stop racism

Educate yourself: Find out more

There are lots of ways you can learn about racism and its effects. Here are a few of our suggestions for getting started:

Newsround have a special programme on racism that offers lots of helpful information about what is happening and why.

You can read some of the words of black people about their opinions on racism and why change is important.

Read the facts about George Floyd and the protests happening around the world.

Hear what young African Americans have to say about their own experiences of racism and how they want things to change in the future.

Watch Radzi retrace the route of a civil rights march in the USA that changed history - The Walk That Changed the World.

For help and support:

Racism can be very upsetting to experience and uncomfortable to talk about. But it's really important that you speak out about your feelings if you are upset by what you have read in the news or heard online. You can always speak to a parent, teacher or trusted adult about the subject.

If you have experienced prejudice because of your skin colour - or any other reason - please take a look at this Lifebabble help and advice page.

There is also a list of Help and Advice lines if you feel you need some support.

    black people are being treated differently because of there skin color
    but white people are causing the problem

    at school I have a friend and he is one out of the five people in my class who are black
    and his mum is from Jamaica and his dad from Africa he has experienced lots of bullying because of his skin color and heritage and I have to help him support him and fight back.

    It sounds like your friend needs to talk to someone about what they are going through at the moment. They could speak to a family member, a guardian, a friend, or a teacher.

    If there is no one they feel they can speak to then there are advice helplines here: Help and advice page

    Your friend should try to talk to someone as soon as possible. It might surprise them how much better it feels when you share a problem.
