6 Have we ever experienced racism in our own lives? Can we categorise these from the least serious to the most serious forms of racism?The idea is that students will categorise the acts of racism in a similar way to the pyramid of hate.
7 The Pyramid of HateThis is used to show how there are foundations to racism.Does the order of racist incidents you categorised fit in with the pyramid?What will happen if you take away the foundations? Or less serious aspects of the pyramid?Students should be able to identify that without the lower levels of the pyramid the more extreme acts of racism will not happen.
