People in Harmony acknowledge terms such as 'race', 'racism', 'mixed race' and 'interracial' have arisen out of specific social and economic circumstances. We therefore understand that such terms are rightly, subject for debate and invite comment from those involved.

 

Definitions of those terms:

'Race'
refers to groups of people with specific and clearly identifiable common characteristics. We believe that this view should be challenged as inaccurate and inadequate and that humans cannot, and should not, be classified into clear cut categories.
'Mixed Race'
a description of people or families whose origins are described as being from different 'races'.
'Interracial'
describes a mix of 'races' or relationships between 'races'.
'Racism'
the belief that discrimination against a person on the basis of race or ethnic grouping is justified. When we speak about racism, we include not only the racist behaviour but also racist attitudes
