Racism is destructive.
Labelling, racism, and bullying are the most prevalent diseases in our society today. Racism has been around for centuries, and it is sadly still going on. It has influenced wars, slavery, the formation of nations, and legal codes. But what right does one person have to decide which person is lower than himself?
25-year-old Rebecca Telford had the most shocking experience of her life, when a random stranger suddenly spat on her 9-month-old baby. The man then looked at her and shouted, “White people shouldn’t breed!”
The man was identified as 33-year-old Rezzas Abdulla, who already has two previous convictions for race-hate attacks on white females. He was convicted for race-hate attacks on white females after a trial at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court, which he did not attend.
Prosecutor Emma Dowling said: “He leant into the pushchair and spat into the face of her daughter.
“As he did so, he shouted or said ‘white people shouldn’t breed’ then walked off.”
The court heard when the baby’s stunned mother confronted Abdulla, he told her to “shut the f*** up” and walked off.
In a victim impact statement, stunned Rebecca told the police: “I am completely disgusted and distressed that a grown man, regardless of race or religion, would spit on a defenceless baby in a completely unprovoked attack.
“If he had just walked by I would not have even noticed him, there was no eye contact and no words had been exchanged. I had never seen him before.”
She added: “I believe he spat on her purely because we are white. I was a lone female and an easy target.”
