A public stand against a real problem

There is a real danger in Northern Ireland that some people just don’t realise how serious the problem with racism is.

The debate we should be having now is about the values we have as a society, the moral leadership that we show and the example that we set.  Recent events are not a soap opera and they are not entertainment. They are real, they are dangerous and they have the support of far too many people.

Today is an opportunity for everyone opposed to racism – in all its forms and guises – to make a public stand  for a Northern Ireland in which citizenship is the benchmark not colour, ethnic origin or religious belief. Racism is wrong. It will always be wrong
