perhaps You have been thoroughly tired of this whole rasismedebatten after the assassination of George Floyd. I understand you, it's the sun, it is summer and soon it's holiday – life is wonderful and great.Nasir Ahmed Show more
But for those who have been and are subjected to racism, this is their life's most important debate, a debate about their identity and recognition for their "otherness".
It is therefore a disappointment to see that the broad political debate has been absent, despite the fact that the debate has dominated the news the last time.
We have witnessed that over 15 000 people met up in front of the Parliament in solidarity with George Floyd, and in protest against the hverdagsrasismen. Antimuslimsk organization, SIAN, went to the square on Mortensrud in order to spread hatred and prejudice against muslims. Avisforsidene have shared stories about hverdagsrasismen and ethnic discrimination, and a PR-nestor threw out a comment to a pr advisor to "learn western values".
All opposed from all this, and all are against any form of racism, but why exist when racism in our own ranks, and what else needs to for it to awaken a great political engagement?< p> My life as a racist Comment
over the decades, it has been demonstrated in our streets with slogans about "no racists in our streets", but still exists the problem in their best of health. Why is that?
There can be many reasons for this, but as a popularly elected and politically active, is my impression that the activity and commitment in the political landscape is absent. The commitment is not as large as it was after #klimabrølet, #metoo or the fight against negative social control.
It is claimed that a part of the fight against negative social control is our greatest fight for freedom. Yes, it is important, but I think unlikely that it is larger than the fight against racism and discrimination, because it is about identity, about the existence, recognition and acceptance, regardless of background, skin color, gender, sexual orientation and disability.
Our democracy has created a freer society through the policy in close cooperation with civil society. Therefore, it is through policy that we must address and create solutions that in the longer term can create a more understanding society with zero tolerance for racism and discrimination in practice.
prime Minister Erna Solberg has addressed this debate by referring to a plan of action against racism and discrimination, that through this plan that the Storting has adopted, we will be able to solve this problem.
My concern is that the action plan is a pillow, without any form of commitment in the achievement of objectives.We will include more Debate
This is who to believe that likestillingskampen have been a result of one plan of action alone. On the contrary, it has required specific and targeted decisions for years.
There have been and are being shown a political commitment to likestillingskampen in the design of the policy. The same must also happen in the fight against racism and ethnic discrimination. Why is my call to all political parties that the fight against racism must be addressed by specific and targeted measures in their ongoing partiprograms processes for next year's general election.
Norwegian research shows that people with a multicultural background also being subjected to discrimination in the political landscape. It must be taken seriously. It can be seen thoroughly on the representation in the elected bodies, because a person with a multicultural background or with a different skin color, is more than just a "quota" on the municipality and stortingsliste.
political commitment and vigor will demonstrations with the slogan "no racists in our streets" be normal in our society, and systematic hverdagsrasisme will continue to exist in their best of health.
