the Murder of George, He brought the entire world's wrath. However, the racism we have to fight not only the raw kind, which took the lives of George Riley. There is also the silent racism that is, in the periods of time become more and more apparent. That is the hypocrisy, when the corps go, in the time of racism in the united states, but not for a moment to reflect on why it looks like it is in Sweden's official site.
also If you chose to study journalism with a dream of changing the world for the better, just think for a moment about this: What should journalists do if it were not to reflect society at large?
Why not give the ones that are supposed to be society's the spine itself, the prerequisites in order to be able to be at the service of all its citizens? The news and perspectives are excluded in the reporting, if we, ourselves, in the industry, do not live up to the pluralism, freedom, equality, and justice, and we are so happy to say that we are fighting for?
as I say, on the basis of their own experience with extremely. This affects all of us, even the media, which in the long run it loses its credibility.
It is in the walls
Mediesverige is sufficiently small, I applied for a job to get to know who's got service in their place. When you repeatedly see that the people who got the job, have less education and less experience, but it does not have an immigrant background to say that structural racism is not in the redaktionernas the walls.
Unfortunately, I have had it confirmed by a majority of the industry. Unfortunately, Mediesverige in any case, in this way, the mirrors of the society. I have had to learn to be my master's degree in the journalism may be less valuable because I have not called it, and has blonde hair. It's just that some of us, for any reason, are fighting an uphill battle.
The racism is also expressed, when you're in the end successful, in terms of the comments that I have heard: ”of course they picked you, you've been an employer's dream come true, a different ethnic background, and a woman.
if you are privileged and need to break the silence and ask the uncomfortable questions,
In the ten years I have seen the media industry from the inside, as the interior is suffering from a lack of diversity, but which, externally, has built a façade of a well-known name, under the guise of ethnic diversity. An industry that at times seems to have lost its intended purpose: to be in a third state.
Mediegudar don't realize that, in a homogeneous workplace, leading to a starry, or to narrow the reflection of the world we live in. Of course, it is a business like any other, who are having to deal with the structural problems in the form of, for example, racism. But in a way different from other industries: no-one is reviewing the reviewers.
the Black list
So many of the articulate reviewer, who is a mute. The fear that, even if you don't get fired, so can one's name to, nevertheless, end up being on the list. There will be an end of his career. So, we will draw from the list below: On the cover, and the pressure cooker is in operation.
the Problems are being deferred to the future until there will be a Metoo with even more of a struggle. On the media's structural problems, and a lack of diversity. If the hiring managers who hire based on other things than just training and skill.
the other reason is that they are more likely to not have a good reason to reflect on what it looks like in the workplace. Why is the question of when it all rolls on and so comfortable in the white of the bubble? Perhaps this is the picture of diversity, to 1 000 variations of the white, middle-aged man? And the cleaners are of a different ethnic background is sufficient, in order to be able to describe themselves as a company that upholds diversity and equity?
We all need to link arms in order to get things to change. If you are privileged and need to break the silence and ask the awkward questions.
The blatant racism in the united states, people to get out and about on the streets to protest. However, how we are fighting the hidden racism that we have so much in Sweden? That means that some groups of people will not have access to some of the positions, despite the fact that they have the skills.
It's time to call in the English media, in the same way as journalists in any other samhällsbärande players. We need to pay attention to this, together with the date on which it is #likaföralla. < / span> < / span>
