Why a Brazilian football team played with an inverted jersey and no one noticed

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 6-06-2014 21:40 | Category: Discrimination, Sport

Brazilian football team Botafogo inverted the colors of its jersey in the battle against racism.

Due to the increasing racism, Brazilian football club Botafogo inverted the colors of its traditional jersey. It was striped black and white for over 100 years. And the club, together with Puma, announced that they would take the field with a special jersey. After great expectations came the surprise which no one noticed.

The take the field with an inverted shirt that was black and white also. And unfurled a banner reading:
“If you didn’t notice the invertered jersey, it’s because color makes no difference at all.”

Minorities unite with animated campaign ahead of EU elections

#NoHateEP2014: Minorities unite with animated campaign ahead of EU elections.

This animated campaign explains the choice given to Emma, an EU voter, in the May elections. Emma faces an important choice between candidates who oppose her friends’ rights, or who care about both Emma and her community.
The campaign comes from ILGA-Europe (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans & Intersex Association) and The European Network Against Racism (ENAR).

Evelyne Paradis, ILGA-Europe: “This is the first time two organisations like ours unite at this level. We speak for over a thousand organisations who firmly believe that discriminating against one minority affects everyone negatively.”
“We’re telling voters from all walks of life that more equality and more justice are within reach, but to achieve that, they must vote in May.”

Many candidates for the European Parliament hold very strong views about diversity and LGBT rights. That is the reason for this campaign. That you make a conscious choice if you find equality important.

The campaign will be shared widely on social media in 12 languages in the run-up to the May elections. It contains a video and infographics.
The hashtag is #NoHateEP2014.

Papier pour tous: Je ne m’appelle pas Azzi

This is the first campaign in Morocco which is about discrimination against sub-Saharan migrants in the country. It was launched on the international day against the racism, March 21, and it will run until June 20.
It is a campaign from ‘Paper for all’ (Papier pour tous), a collective of 11 organisations.

It is a simple and clear print campaign showing a sub-Saharan man with the text “Je ne m’appelle pas Azzi” (My name isn’t Azzi). Azzi is a pejorative term for a black man.

Younes Foudil from Papiers pour Tous: The main aim of the campaign is to reach intellectuals and media. Those are the ones that should spread the message.

In addition to the print campaign, there is also a petition started at Avaaz.

Pardeep Singh Bahr. Don't Freak, I'm Sikh

These are challenging times for people who live as conspicuous religious minorities. From Quebec’s proposed “Charter of Values” to American Muslim-Bashing, the pressure to conform is still a great threat to cultural diversity.

Sikh men are often the target of this xenophobia. With their turbans and the controversy about their ceremonial knives, they stand out in western countries. In the UK, noted photographer and stylist Pardeep Singh Bahr is spreading the word about what being Sikh really stands for with his video poem, “Don’t Freak I’m Sikh”:
