What kinds of racism are there?

Racism is not just a black and white thing. Many children are picked on because they look different, speak a different language or have different religious beliefs.

Some people have to wear certain styles of clothing because of their religion and very often get bullied because of this.

Racism includes picking on people who are from a different country too. Many refugee children whose families might have escaped war in their own country are bullied in Britain.
