Stephen Lawrence, was murdered in April 1993 by a group of young White males on a London street in south- west London. A lot has been written about the racism in America however the same racism can be seen in England. Stephen Lawrence’s mother Doreen wrote an account of the horrendous murder of her son in her book which the title was taken from Maya Angelou ‘and still I rise’.
To rise from a racist murder has shown through Doreen Lawrence, a black woman who still fights for injustice. I have been told from people who know her as a softly spoken well respected woman in the house of lords. She is by all accounts one of the most inspirational human being. Racism continues to be an injustice in 2016 this hatred for a fellow man because of their colour of skin is disgusting and has to be addressed. Stephen Lawrence should not of been killed. we must all rise against racism.
