Let's face it. Discrimination is wrong. Racial bias is wrong. And no matter how hard we try to eradicate discrimination, it will never go away. There will always be those who think they deserve more that others, be it because of race, religion, size, economic stature or age, it is just a fact we need to recognize. Call them anything you want, but they exist and will continue to exist.
Why are we focusing on the bad behavior of a few, when mainstream America is doing its best to accept all races, people of all colors, people of all kinds of backgrounds?
We will never live in a perfect world, but many of us make serious efforts. We want to live as one nation, a nation of many colors and ethnic backgrounds. What's stopping us?
There are many who try to divide us, currently because of the color of one's skin. I'm not one of them. Who cares how light or dark skinned you are, what your ethnic background is, we live in a country that believes and confirms we are all created equal.
Still there are those who want to separate us, white vs black, black vs white. This only adds fuel to the fire.
We need to eradicate hatred. Condemn it. Don't let it take control anywhere. Kill it when it flares up.
Please adopt me, I desperately want to be your brother or sister, not some distant relative whom I have to treat differently. You don't have to conform. You don't have to change the pride you have in your ancestry. Just accept me as I am.
