Someone In Manchester Keeps Covering Up Racist Graffiti With Cat Stickers

As Mahatma Gandhi once said, you have to start with yourself. The brilliance of this is that it can be applied to almost anything, starting with the amount of rubbish lying on the streets and ending with some actual social issues that can’t be ignored. Of course, various social issues are always a controversial topic but yet, it must be talked about. And sure enough, we need to act upon them as well. Today’s story features someone who just couldn’t put up with racist graffiti around the city center of Manchester anymore and figured out how to improve the situation in a brilliantly witty way.

Someone in Manchester came up with an ingenious way to improve the city’s situation regarding racist graffiti

Even though most cities have loads of graffiti, some of them are more appealing to the masses than others. And how else could it be when some of them are purely racist and insulting to certain social groups. Seeing this, someone in Manchester decided to act upon it by covering the graffiti up with a poster of a cat.

They figured the best way to fight against it is not just to try and hide it but to acknowledge the problem and face it head-on

People have spotted the stickers all around the city covering hoax Extinction Rebellion posters with inflammatory messages about immigration and race. Although the person behind this is unknown, it seems that the stickers themselves come from an Australian organization called Cracks Appearing Distro.

Venic 2 days agoCheck out John Kevan up there. Whoa, racists think their opinions are the truth?! What a shocking revelation! And I’m not even sure what Valerie Costin is attempting to say, but that seems to be a running problem with people who use ellipses to punctuate every sentence.
