A Tool against Coffee Table Racism

30 September 2010
The association WienXtra has published a brochure called “Da mach’ ich nicht mit!” (“I’m not going to join in on that!”), in an effort to combat everyday prejudices and stereotypes. The brochure is aimed at youths, and has ready-made counterarguments to coffee table assertions, such as “all foreigners are criminals,” or “Islam wants to come to power in Austria.” Nonetheless, the author of the brochure, Marion Wisinger of the League for Human Rights, maintains that it is just as relevant for adults as for youths in the fight against discrimination.
