  • Labour and Fine Gael call for hijab school ban | Show Racism The Red Card
    promote understanding of diversity They have a responsibility to provide real solutions to real problems Hijab bans have only the the potential for a negative outcome resulting from exclusion segregation ignorance and more Muslim girls should not be allowed to wear a headscarf in public schools the two main opposition parties said last night Labour s Ruairi Quinn said immigrants who come to Ireland need to conform to the culture of this country If people want to come into a western society that is Christian and secular they need to conform to the rules and regulations of that country the Labour spokesman on education and science told the Irish Independent His comments come amid mounting controversy over guidelines on the wearing of the hijab commonly worn by Muslim girl in state schools His stance on the issue was backed by his Fine Gael counterpart Brian Hayes who says it makes absolute sense that there is one uniform for everyone Mr Quinn said immigrants should live by Irish laws and conform to Irish norms Nobody is formally asking them to come here In the interests of integration and assimilation they should embrace our culture he said He added Irish girls don t wear headscarves A manifestation of religious beliefs in such a way is unacceptable and draws attention to those involved I believe in a public school situation they should not wear a headscarf Mr Hayes said Ireland should not be going down the route of multiculturalism Last night a spokesperson for Integration Minister Conor Lenihan said he had no problem with students wearing the hijab For those that wear the hijab it s an issue of modesty It s not so long since Irish women wore headscarves to church so we have to respect that the spokesperson said This entry

    of Ireland and carried out by 12 researchers at UCD It found that while Indians worked in similar occupations in Ireland as in their home country there was evidence of de skilling across all four groups This was most apparent for Nigerians who experienced a significant change from managerial business and government occupations to services and childcare Despite this however a significant majority in each group believed its financial situation had improved since coming to Ireland Chinese nationals were least convinced of a positive change and this group also reported the lowest levels of income with 59 per cent earning an average annual income of less than 14 400 That may be connected to their status since student visa holders may only legally work for 20 hours a week Indian respondents had the highest incomes with 67 per cent reporting an average annual income of greater than 31 720 Respondents highlighted young people as a source of anti immigrant sentiment with some interviewees reporting that young people had thrown stones or eggs at them Others had friends who had been physically assaulted Overall the report finds a clear desire if not the opportunity among migrants for social interaction with fellow residents The immigrant council makes 27 detailed recommendations in the report including in areas such as family reunification naturalisation procedures and English language training This entry was posted in News Events Bookmark the permalink Lithuanian Basketball comes to Ireland Labour and Fine Gael call for hijab school ban Search for Recent Posts Football Against Racism actions Come to our Tackling Racism seminar on November 17th One Race the Human Race exhibition open now One Race Exhibition launches nationwide tour One Race Human Race Exhibition 2015 16 Archives October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 June 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February

  • Shaka Hislop on Show Racism the Red Card | Show Racism The Red Card
    became involved to the extent that every library and school in Scotland and Wales and a large number in England is now part of the campaign Us footballers could never have believed we would have such an impact but it makes you realise just how big a role model you are considered to be Indeed I don t think I m being big headed when I say Ged was very wise to involve us While the people who are targeted by the campaign inside football stadia are only a small cross section of society by extension it branches out into the wider community and children do listen to us For the players it was a case of giving something back to the local community that gave so much to us We can t expect the government to solve everything that is wrong in society If we re part of the problem we re part of the solution Also in my mind when I agreed to help was the memory of the abuse black footballers used to suffer in England which I would see on TV back home in Trinidad when I was growing up Many had to endure very distasteful incidents but their resilience shone through and without that I wouldn t have been able to ply my trade John Barnes Chris Kamara Gary Bennett Viv Anderson Garth Crooks and many more before and after we all owe them a debt that we can never repay and it is a testament to their fortitude that the Premier League is now almost racism free Of course we could never imagine our early work would lead to over 1 000 patrons chapters in eight different European countries and ceremonies being hosted at the prime minister s residence But there is still so much more to be done as has been highlighted this week by the appearance in the Uefa Cup final of Zenit St Petersburg whose fans are notorious for racism Islamaphobia has been much more prominent since the September 11 attacks and anti Semitism has raised its ugly head again So we must never think we have cured the problem In the UK we rely on the fact that footballers are so well recognised but just because soccer players lack the same notoriety in North America does not mean they can t get involved Jason de Vos for example is one of our patrons He is setting up a campaign now that he has returned to Canada and that is being part funded by FifPro Many athletes across sport in the US are involved in the community where they grew up or where they play some build houses for disadvantaged families while one NFL player underwrote loans for single mothers to buy houses The MLS seems unimportant in contrast to all this but it is worth noting that Columbus has the best record after a five game winning streak Indeed the whole league has something of a lop sided feel Traditionally

  • Racism in schools | Show Racism The Red Card
    in 1998 the vast majority have only been doing it for the past three to four years Monica Galt a senior figure at the National Association of Head Teachers said My reaction is one of disappointment and concern I m surprised and we will take this on board We ll have to look at giving guidance for schools on this for head teachers and teachers on how to analyse what is racism Not enough being done We re not doing enough in our schools to prevent this happening and that s what we should be doing A racist incident in school is defined as any situation which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person It can range from name calling to severe physical abuse http www channel4 com news article jsp id 529272 Predominantly white communities fail to acknowledge racism Meanwhile another UK study in 1999 found thatSchools serving predominantly white communities are not responding adequately to the problems of racism claim researchers In the week that the Stephen Lawrence inquiry report called for a greater awareness of ethnic diversity in schools researchers from the Children s Legal Centre charity at the University of Essex have claimed that teachers are failing to recognise the extent of racism in schools The researchers carried out a confidential survey of 15 secondary schools in East Anglia all with a majority of white pupils to see how racism was addressed in lessons and how it was tackled as a problem among pupils Racism and Bullying The centre s director Carolyn Hamilton says that schools with few black pupils often failed to identify there was a problem with racism with a reluctance to consider racial incidents as separate from other bullying Pupils more aware than teachers When teachers and pupils were interviewed separately it revealed a much greater awareness of racism among pupils than teachers While both black and white pupils reported racist name calling and violent incidents teachers were often apparently unaware of the problem Researchers found that ethnic minority pupils had been subjected to verbal abuse and racist graffiti But these black pupils often isolated among a large majority of whites were reluctant for anti racist lessons to be too direct as this would leave them feeling singled out and exposed In terms of schools responses to the problem researchers found that there was little consistency in either disciplinary measures against racism or in policies to improve understanding of other cultures In conclusion the researchers say the schools did not adequately prepare pupils for life in a multicultural society In the report s recommendations they call for guidance and support for teachers to help them prevent racism in schools This could involve the Commission for Racial Equality setting up a code for good practice in anti racist education Other proposals call for training for teachers in multicultural awareness the inspection by the Office for Standards in Education of school anti racist policies and the involvement of representatives from
