'There is no one way to approach racism' #TakeOnRacism

The Anti-Racism Network of South Africa has encouraged citizens and organisations to use anti-racism week as a platform to speak out against and provide solutions to racism.

While a proposed bill to criminalise hate crimes and hate speech is still being considered, National Conveyer Sean Moodley says there is no single approach to fighting racism.

Racism in the old South Africa was a law and so, what we see today is the fruits of the roots.

So we going to have to take this on both from a behavioral change point and acting against racism.

We have got to look at a behavioral change model and a behavioral control model.
