  I am sick of racism
Updated 22 July 2003, 08.08

Cat knows what it's like to be a victim of racism.

In her report she says you should never be ashamed of where you come from.

"I'm from a South African background, but I'm not black.

I moved to Australia a couple of years ago, and got a few racist comments then.

In South Africa, I never was the main target of racism.

I never witnessed a lot, and the different cultures and skin-types didn't seem at all weird to me.

Lately, I've realised more than ever how much racism there is in the world.

Stand proud

I know now how many other people feel when they are bullied because of where they come from.

It never really affected me too much before this, but I want to say: stand proud and don't let other people bully you into being ashamed of where you come from.

It's their problem, let them deal with it, but don't let things go too far, TELL SOMEONE!"

Cat, 13, Sydney, Australia
