The Albion Shows Racism the Red Card

Luke Shaw helps local students Show Racism the Red Card

Pupils from Foundation partner schools were invited to the club’s Aon Training Complex for the event, during which they were educated about issues regarding racism, homophobia and bullying.

Show Racism the Red Card is an educational charity, which uses the high profile of footballers to convey positive anti-discrimination messages to young people.  During today’s event, Luke Shaw took part in a Q&A session, speaking about his experiences of bullying and racism through his football career and gave advice to the pupils.

“It’s important that if you are getting bullied or racially abused to let it out and tell someone so you have people around you for support,” the Reds left-back advised. “Tell your family, your friends, your teacher – they will be able to help and make you feel more positively about yourself, which can only help you in the long run.”

The event included films, workshops and interactive activities, which enabled the pupils to expand their knowledge of the different types of abuse and explore their own views on discrimination.
