Special Issue ČKZ: Racism: Cut up World, No. 260, Založba Beletrina

The reasons for ČKZ issue on racism are multifold and are reflected in all the women, men, children, teenagers who come to Europe because of the war, climate change, economic or personal reasons. There are awaited here by racism of political parties and groups, which moved from obscurity to the centre of decision-making. Both left and right, merged into the European centre, enclosed in alienated institutions, internalized racism as agenda of its policies, instead of building cordon sanitaire around racism. Racist political parties are now part of the European Parliament and other institutions of decision-making. In the last decade right-wing and far-right parties strengthened their position, their election scores rose visibly. During this time also paramilitant, far-right groups which in closed camps worship fascism and Nazism while gaining approval in public life for their patriotism, i.e. “good nationalism” increased membership and public visibility all over Europe. Their targets are migrants, Muslims, Roma, they call for the lynching of LGBT-people, celebrate war and the Holocaust. We have experienced a re-legitimization, and with it a resurgence of racism, while the notion of racism was chased from the political vocabulary when political elites tell us that racism no longer exists. In this issue of ČKZ we disclose masks of racism, and draw attention to its vitality and ubiquity.
