Write a brief letter or email informing him that you find his comments hurtful and asking him to refrain from such remarks in the future. Arguing with the relative will likely be a waste of time. The family member will be on the defensive and you will be on the offensive. Meanwhile, you will have convinced her of little or nothing about racial sensitivity. Depending on your situation, you might have to set guidelines with your relative. Say, for example, that you have children. Do you want your children to hear the comments by your family member? If your relatives routinely make such comments, let them know that you will skip family gatherings with them altogether.
Organize a family trip to a museum with a social justice focus. Have a movie night at your house and screen films addressing issues of racial inequity or showing minority groups in a positive light. Start a family book club and select anti-racist literature. Much of our work is on the phone, writing letters and emails, and researching on the internet.
We also draw on support from The Salvation Army churches and social centres in the UK and around the world. Our first contact with the person sought is often made by letter with an assurance that personal information will not be disclosed to any other party unless permission is granted. They will be told the identity of the person seeking contact with them, and they will be given options for contact.
If there is hesitation about having direct contact in the first instance, relatives may correspond via the Family Tracing Service until trust is established. Whatever the decision of the person sought, this will be fully respected. Every case is different and searches can take anything from a few days to a number of years to complete. We cannot guarantee that we will be successful in finding your relative, but will of course let you know as soon as there is news to report, whatever the outcome.
Because of data protection legislation and the confidential nature of our work, we are unable to provide details of our tracing procedures, and will not disclose the whereabouts or other personal details of people we locate without first obtaining their consent.
