Human Rights Commission highlights everyday racism in latest campaign

The Australian Human Rights Commission has launched its ‘Racism. It Stops With Me’ campaign, highlighting everyday racism.

In one of the two 30 second spots a man is seen holding the door open for a fellow colleague but declining to hold the door open for a colleague with a different skin colour.

Created by Banjo, the man then refuses to be in the lift with his colleague of different skin colouring.

The ad finishes with the slogan “Racism. It Stops With Me”.

In another spot featuring two men waiting for a taxi, a taxi driver pulls up asking the caucasian man to get in, when the caucasian man explains his Indian friend was next in line, the cab driver turns off his light and drives off.
