    Everybody doesn't deserve to be judge by their

    color, everybody is made equal, unique and beautiful. This goes to anybody who experienced racism.

    Racism In America

    Like who cares about your skin color,

    your nationality and all. We're all humans. Racists should really stop with their racism. It disgusts me. Like if a racist is in front of me, I'd be glad to tear them apart. Racism should be stopped.

    It's crazy how the pigment of your skin can take

    such a huge toll on your life. And we wonder why society can't advance. People still dwell on petty things such as racism. It's safe to say it's the biggest sign of ignorance and immaturity in the world.

    Lives matter. ALL lives matter. There is no need to put race in front if it. "A BLACK man was shot by a WHITE cop." No, a man was shot by a cop. If we all want to BE equal, we ALL have to ACT equal.
