Racism raises its ugly head in Europe

Who does not know Oprah Winfrey? One of the most well-known and well-loved personalities in the world? But she is black and there is not sign on her forehead saying she is Oprah Winfrey and one of the richest women in the world. Because of that she is stereotyped like the rest of black women or black people who are seen as low-lives and nothing but thieves or swindlers. Why else would the shop servant discriminate and refuse to show Oprah the expensive purse? What was going through the head of that servant?
What needs to change for people to change from these stupid unproductive ways. When would they learn that we are one regardless of pale-faced or dark faced we are still the same as human beings.
I think that people of conscience ought to stop patronising any establishment that discriminates against anyone. We do not need these people in business. They belong to a different era and are not going to be the survivors so allow them to die their natural death. We have to take responsibility for peace if we want peace. Peace starts with you and me and with honoring each and every human dignity.
