The message is clear: East Ayrshire - No place for racism.
Strathclyde Police in East Ayrshire have scored another goal in their aim to eradicate racism from local communities.
On Saturday (27th March) they were supported by players and staff from Auchinleck Talbot to ‘show racism the red card’.
The police, in partnership with East Ayrshire Council, hope to raise supporter awareness that racism will not be tolerated in the street or on the terraces.
Tommy Breslin, of Show Racism the Red Card, said: "Auchinleck Talbot FC and the club’s fans have been long term supporters of ‘Show Racism The Red Card’.
“This is another clear anti-racist message from the community. Multi-cultural diversity is nothing new to Scotland and is something that should be celebrated rather than attacked - there is no place for racism in Ayrshire or in wider Scottish society."
This anti-racism initiative is part of the recent phase which successfully provided reassurance and assistance to fast food takeaways and off-licences staffed by ethnic minorities. The distribution of carrier bags and drinks mats in bars sent an important anti-racism message.
Inspector Derek Ireland, of Cumnock Police Office, said: "This phase of our anti-racism initiative is to raise awareness and to successfully change people’s attitude and behaviour.
“Racist crime is wholly unacceptable and can have a devastating effect on the lives of victims. By working in partnership to tackle this issue head on we can ultimately build a safer and more tolerant community."
