Alba Hails End Of Racism

SIN CITY star JESSICA ALBA hates racism and has called on her generation to eradicate it for good.

The part Mexican, part Danish star has experienced racism first hand and is appalled at the treatment her parents received because they had a mixed race marriage.

Alba is infuriated by the racial stereotyping that is rife in Hollywood and is determined to both make a racism-free future.

She says, "When I started acting, people tried to typecast me as an ethnic girl. It was my first experience of racism. But people will always put you down to a certain level, a certain class. I never wanted to be pigeon-holed.

"The people who are going to be running the world in the next generation aren't racist or sexist. There's a group of people in their twenties, with different coloured skins, who are going to be in charge of the studios of tomorrow, the agencies, the film business.

"I'm going to be with them and that is exciting."
