Everyday Racism

Everyday Racism


Challenge the way you think about racism and look at life through someone else’s eyes. Take the EverydayRacism challenge and experience what life can be like for ethnic and cultural minorities in Australia who face subtle forms of racism every day.

EverydayRacism is an immersive game played out over seven days, giving you an insight into the racial issues many face in Australia. Choose from one of three characters: a Muslim woman, an indigenous man or an Indian student, and for the next seven days you’ll receive simulated texts, tweets, images and videos as though you were them.

How will you respond? How will it make you feel? Can you handle it?

The game also gives you the opportunity to play as yourself, where you’ll witness incidents of racism and their effect on people around you.

The game has been produced by All Together Now in association with the University of Western Sydney, The University of Melbourne and Deakin University.

All Together now is Australia’s only national charity that has a sole focus of addressing racism.

Seriously? This app is a joke! Why respond to racist behavior? Responding to it is only going to inflame a situation. The racist behavior is the problem of the person inflicting it, not the victim. The approach is all wrong. Change needs to come from awareness and education and a nonblaming manner. Non violent communication, mindfulness and non judgment are all tools to confront racism. Responding to it just gives the behavior oxygen. The point is that this app seems to be advancing a political agenda.
