It’s not exactly news to us that racism is prevalent in almost all parts of the world today. Millions of people are victims of everyday racism, judged by the colour of the skin or the language they speak.

These are the kinds of things victims of everyday racism go through and it makes them die a little inside every time. Something you might see as basically harmless could end up ruining their lives.
This short film about a Greek family and their reaction to their daughter sitting down next to a dark-skinned man in a hospital waiting room reveals a shocking ending that leaves them speechless.
The message this video presents is an important one we must all consider.
