We live in a world with 7 billion other humans who are different from each other, but in no way are lesser or more than one another. It is unfortunate that a lot of people seem to miss out on this little detail. For whatever reasons, some we know and some we do not, racism has been rampantly spreading all around the world and especially in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Recently, a place called Walthamstow in London saw a racist incident that is downright shameful. Some resident very boldly wrote on a wall that the people who lived in the neighbourhood spoke English only. This is not just crass, but so ignorant that it hurts to look at it, especially keeping in mind the multicultural background of London as a city.

Racism is one of those social evils that has existed since time immemorial- which is why it is high time that we did something about it and you would be glad to know that someone did!

I agree that there has been a surge in racist activity in recent times, but people have not simply stood by and watched. Local artist and if I may say, hero, Chris Walker made sure that this act of hate did not remain merely just that.

Chris’s post that brought his work into focus led to a wholesome thread of people from a lot of places commending his work and for good reason!

Twitter user Ellie Levenson makes a lot of sense!

Let us not stop hoping!

Well sometimes the remix is just too good to ignore.

We can forgive him, can we not? Was not his fault, after all!

Chris’s work brought into focus the spreading intolerance in the area, which led to something wonderful. Queens Boundary Community conducted an event to stand against racism and bring the people of different communities together. There has been help coming in from different religious establishments and this truly goes on to show that one act of hatred can give rise to so much love.

There have been hateful incidents everywhere, but then there are these incidents that remind us that humanity still exists and will continue to, through love and kindness.

Chris is happy to have played a small role in sending this big message of love to the people of Walthamstow. He wants everyone to know that Walthamstow is home to all the cultures from all across the world.
