In a previous blog (Hurt feelings), I discussed the psychological and emotional damage of discrimination suffered by the victim.
A story that has been making headlines this week has been the racist graffiti that was daubed on the front door of a property in Salford, Greater Manchester.
To its great credit, The Guardian published the pictures of the graffiti on its front page in order to expose the true extent of racism in British society in 2019.
A 10 year old boy, David Yamba has spoken about how the offensive graffiti on the front door of his home has traumatised him:
‘Racist graffiti left me terrified’
Ten-year-old David Yamba’s new home was vandalised with the words “No Blacks” painted on the front door.
