Item description for Racism in the 21st century by Bettina Wohlgemuth...
This is the 21st century. Mankind has gone through lots of critical and dangerous times. A lot of our wars have been fought just because of the distribution of power. The atrocious and despicable treatment of black slaves in the US and the determined holocaust of Jewish people during World War II are just two examples of racially motivated humiliation and mistreatment of human beings. Today, we have to face cultural racism, rooting in prejudices and stereotypes which are still being supported and spread by lots of people. First, the author Bettina Wohlgemuth gives a historical overview of the term 'racism', starting with the religious racism of the Middle Ages, continuing with the biological racism of the 20th century and ending with today's cultural racism. Second, the author introduces Intercultural Learning as one of the most promising ways to positively influence people's thinking and acting. Finally, she tries to provide teachers with an example of how racism could be dealt with at school. The book is aiming at people working at school, young people willing to reconsider their point of view and everybody who would like to make a difference.
