Learn more about the Black Lives Matter movement

How to find out more about this topic

We know many of you follow the news closely, and it's likely that you have seen stories about the Black Lives Matter movement, the growing awareness of racism in today's society, and the steps many people are taking to oppose racism.

Our current Issue is on the arts, so whilst these stories have not featured heavily on the Hub, you might have seen some questions about making art more equal and open to everyone, no matter who they are.

We're very keen to help you learn more about these stories - you can find out much more at Newsround's special section on "Fighting Racism" - which you can find by clicking this button:

What are we doing at The Economist Educational Foundation?

The Economist Educational Foundation is us - the people who run the Burnet News Club! Our goal is to help young people succeed regardless of their background, and so we're taking lots of steps to tackle racism:

We are educating ourselves to understand more about how racism affects the charity and education system - two areas that we can make a difference.

We have published two lessons about racism for children like you! These are a bit like Burnet News Club lessons, but they can be done at home with your family, or at school with your teacher and classmates. You can find them here - and it's best to ask a parent or guardian to go through them with you.

We will provide you with even more opportunities to interact with inspiring, diverse role models and experts on the Hub.

We will always work with and draw on the expertise of people who have relevant and lived experience of the topics we make resources on.

Racism and inequality is found in many of topics that we cover in our educational resources and the Burnet News Club. We will continue to educate young people like you about racism and how it shapes the news.

Having an inclusive hiring process (this means how find new people to work for us) is a priority for us and we are seeking expert advice to ensure that, as we grow, we build a team that comes to reflect the rich diversity of the young people that we work with.

Each year, we will publish the specific actions that we commit to taking in the coming year to tackle racism and we will report on whether we did what we said we would.


We know many of you have commented about racism and the Black Lives Matter movement through your conversations about the arts, and some of your competition entries too.

If you have questions about the Black Lives Matter movement, why not take a look at the Newsround section on it?

    I would like to say, I have heard about a woman who illustrated Jesus as black. Some people think it's great, others, not so much. What I'm trying to say is that, people should have their right to think, and violently protesting is not gonna do anything.

      Could you tell us why this woman is relevant to this discussion?

      I'm also interested what you mean by people should have their right to think? Are you referring to specific people here? It's always important to be as clear as possible to avoid being misinterpreted.

    It’s weird how racism was created. I feel likes it was created to tear us apart. Like in the olden time Hong Kong was rich and they thought that they were superior unlike mainland China. So they looked down on them. But now mainland China is richer than Hong Kong the people and country makes a crazy amount. But China never looked down at Hong Kong. But still Hong Kong hates China thinking that they stole their wealth. It’s weird isn’t it? To children like us are sometimes racist and bullying others without knowing it like making weird faces when someone different walks past it probably feels uncomfortable thinking it was funny. Like in this little story, there was equipment a little girl wants to play on it. Her classmates says people with black skin can’t go on it. She walks away feeling doubted feeling like she was alone what do you think if you were her what would you feel? Even though we’re all different we are all part of the same race which makes us all the same and different. Don’t be afraid of being different like I used to be. Be yourself! No one will mind even though some people might not like you. Just remember you can’t please everyone. And the only opinion you should worry about is your own. Leave the others to think what they want to think you just need your own opinion. No matter what no matter where no matter who, you will never be alone you will always have someone to lean on.

    I think that this is a very important thing to discuss because as we all know this is something that people are protesting about. Personally I don't thing that protesting is the best thing to do because people can get very aggressive about what they think is right. I believe that black people are just as important as white people. There is no difference on the inside! We all have different shape and sized and coloured bodies, but the inside is the same. No two people look the same on the outside! Why do we refer to black people as black people and white people as whit people? WE ARE ALL THE SAME ON THE INSIDE! WE ARE ALL PEOPLE! Treat everyone the same!

    The Black Lives Matter subject makes me feel quite sad. I myself am white, but I feel like anyone else who is a different colour to me should still be able to do the things that I can and be treated the way that I am. I feel like they would feel almost purposeless when white people don't treat them fairly. We are all people. We should all be treated the same way. And anyway, it's not their fault that they where born that colour (not that it should matter anyway).

    Racism. The thing that is tearing us apart. Slavery. 500 years of it. Racism is everywhere, most of the times you can't even notice it. Racism is a giant problem in our community.

    I think we all know and see acts of racism; it's growing and growing each day. Thousands of black people are being murdered because of there pigmentation , or in other words skin.We have all seen it .
    George Floyd- death-25 may 2020 how- Police; put a knee on his neck to restrain him.
    Breonna Taylor-death-13 march 2020-how -shot 6 times in the chest.
    I could go on and on.
    We know all there names; all of this because of police brutality and racism. Before it gets worse we need to stop it.
    Don't just be racist.Be anti racist

    With the BLM protests going on, it makes me angry. Not just about how no one is actually thinking, oh, maybe we need to change things. Its the actually the wording of 'black lives matter'. I know that they are protesting for equality for black lives, but don't ALL lives matter? It makes me confused that some people are half white- half black but are not getting represented as a ethnic group just as a 'different'. I think good on them for protesting on whats right, but can they change the wording of Black Lives Matter, as it could offence people of other ethnic groups.

      Your opinion about the wording is shared with other people too. On the other side of the argument, people would not disagree that all lives matter, but they would argue that people of certain ethnicities face discrimination that other ethnic groups don't, so there should be a particular effort to make things better for those groups. There is a resources on this on our other website - https://economistfoundation.org/resources/ (scroll down to Racism part 1 and 2).

I totally agree that racism is bad and he got killed horribly it was wrong what the 2 policemen did but that is America for you we in England the police don’t carry guns because we don’t like then but in America every person has a gun and it’s not just the police.

      Ibn Omar ibn al-Aas participated with a young man from the clutches in a horse race, so Ibn al-Amir approached the Coptic Ghulam because he had already gone before the Coptic went to Omar bin Al-Khattab in Medina Al-Munawwarah. His truth is from him. The Commander of the Faithful turned to Umar ibn Al-Aas, saying: When will you enslave people when their mother bore them, they are free?

    I think this was a very serious topic in our history and very unfair. Everyone was born the same and nobody had like powers . Colours don't change anything in my opinion..! It only matters what's on the inside like a gift. The wrapping might be so brilliant but the gift inside is what matters just like humans. Our skins are like wrapping , the inside of us matters. Also we don't have like a name tag saying this person is the best or anything. Everyone is the same in this world. Show love and respect to everyone! Treat everyone the way you wanted to be treated

    The Black Lives Matter Movement is an extremely important part of life and it's very powerful if you didn't know this BLM started way back in 2012 (9 years ago) when 17 year-old Trayvon Martin was murdered by a police officer in Miami, Florida on February 26th but that wasn't the first time it had happened in the early 1990s there was a riot in Los Angeles after Rodney King was beaten up by LAPD officers and it's still been happening recently with the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in March and May of 2020 so we all must stick together to stand against Racism and Police Brutality. I mean didn't we get enough of slavery for hundreds of years but we are also extremely lucky to have many Black heroes for example Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Bobby Seal, Fred Hampton, Huey P. Newton, Tuapc Shakur and of course the rest of the Black Panther Party but it's such a shame that a lot of our Heroes have passed away but not all of them even we can be Heroes and SAVE THE WORLD FROM RACISM.

    Racism is not a simple problem
    Racism is a denial of rights, a great danger to society, but what surprises me is that some countries ignore this matter and there is a state that supports racism.
    Why do people see black people as different from us? Is it because our color is different, but what is the difference ??
    They are beautiful in their color, they are proud of their color, they did not see their color as an obstacle in front of them, but there are those who came and launched a campaign against them, and lost self-confidence because of them, the time when they were on their way to achieve their dreams started to spend it while defending themselves because of your racism, they hide from you so that they are not attacked Is this the humanity that you were talking about ?? Didn't you teach your children at school that beauty is the beauty of the heart and not the beauty of the face? Your element reflects the extent of your ignorance
    If you like it or not, black people are just like us. They have rights and you have to respect them, and you should give them all the love. No one will ever forget or condone your mistakes that you made against them.

    Racism takes many forms and can happen in many places, it includes prejudice, discrimination or hatred directed at someone because of their colour, ethnicity or national origin.
    People often associate racism with acts of abuse or harassment. Howeever, it doesn't need to involve violent or intimidating behavior.
    Racism is more than just word, beliefs and action. It includes all the barriers that prevent people from enjoying dignity and equality because of their race.

    While we can work and have our livelihood ... they cannot find a livelihood because they are deprived of an education and people hate them.
    While we play in our parks safely ... they are assaulted and their right to live in safety stolen
    While we use the time of our youth to teach and realize our dreams ... they are justifying to the world that they have done nothing wrong and have not chosen their color.
    While we practice our hobby and develop our talents ... they look at their dreams, their future, and their talents when it fly
    In a useful summary, while we live our lives in safety and freedom ... they live in a cage that they cannot get out of, like a bird that wants to fly, but someone tied him up and stole his freedom and his dream of flying, and this bird remained in his cage fighting to get out, but he could not, Human racism against them has made their lives like a war between them and the world, but they are still fighting racism and demanding their rights, and we have to help them , the difference of our color is not a reason that can deprive us of living in peace, and whatever the reasons, no one has the right to steal our freedom, we are human beings, There is no difference between us, we have rights that must be respected.

    Let us all contribute to stopping racism and helping our black brothers. Racism has gone beyond its limits. It steals blacks' freedom and their right to live in safety.
    Let's reject injustice and ask for justice

    The issue of racism should be fight against. Everyone irrespective of their ethnic group,religious believe,their complexsion should be given their Right. that is;
    Right to life
    Right to freedom of movement
    Right to express ones self and so on.
    And i think that all black people should be given the access code that the white people have, starting from the old to the young.

    * We should planted the trees on the deforestation area.
    *Afforestation needs to be done on barren land.

    Climate change is a very long term change in the weather conditions. The causes of climate changes are burning of fossil fuels, which emits gasses from the green house into the atmosphere.
    Scientists attribute the global warming trend observed since the 20th century to all human expansion from the “green house “ certain gases in the atmosphere blocks heat from escaping.Climate change originated in Ro1 piddocks world’s oceans in the early 1800s.
    The climate changes became an issue in June 23 ,1988. The Arctic, Africa, small island and Asian mega deltas are likely to be affected by future climate change. In 1860s, physicist John Tyndall witnessed some change in the weather from the earth’s natural green house.
    Effects of climate changes are:
    • rising maximum temperatures
    •rising minimum temperatures
    •rising sea levels
    •higher ocean temperatures
    In Nigeria climate change has affected us by increase in temperatures, variables rainfall, rise in sea levels.
    The industrial revolutions affected Africa in many ways one of the most significant was that it change the trade patterns. So now Africa became primarily an importer of manufactured goods and an exporter of raw materials
    We are not so disturbed about climate changes because the impacts of climate change in humans and environmental system have already being seen, from polar regions to backyards, to communities around the world.
    Humans are facing the problem from climate change today, and the one who are causing these conflicts are the humans. It is highly impossible to stop the global warming, but people can still try to reduce or slow down this problem.

    Hello as long as I waited for me to have an opportunity like this to discuss racism in the beginning I would like everyone to know that every person is born with talent and born with benefit from him whether white or black in our time we see that everyone cares By the outward appearance so they may judge those around them from From Their outward appearance and this is a bad thing because not everyone is Outside as inside there is an essence inside every person whoever he is Perhaps we noticed that the distinction Perhaps we have noticed that racial discrimination has spread widely as everyone cares about the lives of whites while Not many people are interested in black lives But blacks are good for society like Whites and blacks have dreams, they have aspirations, and they have opinions that they like to share. I feel sad about what black people are experiencing and I feel that they feel injustice because they did not create themselves I speak of being white my mental and physical abilities, feelings my and qualities may be possessed by any black person in the end they are human beings like us I hope you are more careful and equal because this racism may destroy the lives of black people Please stop this before it's too late!

    There are very many mysteries of how and why racism was created but the main thing is to stop it.The death of George Floyd has been a very significant in history and hows that racism still happens, even after all these laws and protests.No matter what appearance one has doesn't mean that someone is to be treated like a peasant or a royal because on the inside we are made up of the same things.The death of this important person has been taken seriously-lots of protests have been taken place . Fortunately, the police officer -known to strangle George Floyd -has been charged guilty and imprisoned.
