Show civil courage - Austrian and American Anti-Racism videos
Woman: "I can't sit here, it's an affront."
Steward: "It's really an affront that 'you' have to sit here. That's why we have a replacement seat for you in the business class."
The video is from the Austrian Anti-Racism organisation ZARA, which I spotted on the FB of Black Germans. ZARA wants to enhance civil courage and promote an Austrian society free of racism. The next video is also from the organisation.
Men: "Can't you speak German, go back to your country."
But the 'victims' in the Zara videos look a little bit passive.
The next videos are American videos.
This video is entitled "What Would You Do? Racism In An Upscale Store". ABCNews shot a video in a Soho boutique where a racist clerk and security guard harassed a black shopper. They wanted to see if fellow shoppers would do anything to stop the harassment.
And maybe this is what you should do.
