Gender, Hate Speech, Islamophobia, LGBTQIA+, Media
On May 15th 2019, Humanity in Action Poland, together with Rafał Gębura, a YouTuber and creator of 7 Meters Under, the leading channel on social issues, released the video Do you react to such words?.
This video takes a look at the havoc that hate speech wreaks in society, from the perspective of two people: a Muslim woman and a gay man in Poland.
This vlog, as Rafał emphasizes, “is an appeal for respect, tolerance and courage. Courage to react. Because giving license to hate speech makes us all become responsible for it. And violence generates violence.” But to change something – you need a huge response. Within the first two days the trailer itself had over 100,000 views! Watch it and think about it. What can you do?
