PORT Shepstone High School Grade 12 pupils are creating awareness about a global scourge, racism.

They were divided into teams by their life orientation teacher and tasked with coming up with anti-racism campaigns.

One group - “Spectrum” - has gone out of their way to ensure that their campaign works and the message spreads. Spectrum group members said racism must fall.

“It doesn’t matter what colour you are, as long as your blood is red,” they said.

Pupils said they want people to understand that everybody is the same, it doesn’t matter what colour you are as long as everybody bleeds red.

“We want the people to know that no one is born a racist and that there is only one race - the human race.”

Team Spectrum presented a scenario - when a person needs an organ transplant they don’t ask the doctor the race of the person from where the organ is coming.

As part of their campaign strategy Spectrum also created a Facebook page where people can interact with them. The name of the page is Spectrum and they have asked people to like it and support them.
