We have the ability to stand up to racism in cyberspace and to end racially motivated cyberbullying. Furthermore, we can equip ourselves and others with the right coping strategies when we find ourselves witnessing or experiencing racism online. This can be done through supportive resources (Such as reaching out to the team here at Cybersmile) or through our own efforts of blocking and reporting to the site administrator, informing an adult or walking away from the discussion.
I realize this may be a very difficult discussion for many. But if you would like to openly discuss your experiences with racism, we welcome your posts below. Alternatively, you can of course reach out to the Cybersmile team via email for support.Just to get the discussion started;
Have you ever experienced racially motivated cyberbullying and if so what helped you get through it?
What kind of support would you like to see more of online to help those that are experiencing racism on social media or in gaming?
