It is sad that even in 2013 people are still falling victim to prejudice, sexism and racism, but fortunately, there are anti-racism campaigns working to make a difference.
Recently, Flora Coquerel was named Miss France 2014, and that did not sit right with many. While Coquerel is proud to represent a multicultural France, some people would rather she didn't represent France at all. Within minutes of her crowning Twitter was set ablaze with hateful and demoralizing tweets protesting that Miss France should only be open to Caucasian contestants and that there be "death to foreigners."
Luckily, cultural projects like Antidote magazine plan to take over the hate and really promote anti-racism among the French and open their hearts and minds to multiculturalism, because one should never be denied equality because of their skin.
