How would you feel?

How would you feel if someone called you ugly, whether you are black or white, because of where you come from? It hurts, and every day it gets worse and worse. That is what you might be doing to a Muslim or an Asian. Imagine saying that to someone to hurt them, so imagine what it is like happening to you.

What is racism?

Racism is really bad right now. Let’s have an example. Imagine a white person killed someone, everyone says they have a mental issue, or they are deranged, but when an Asian or Muslim person kills someone they are called terrorists. This is called racism.

America has it bad:

Racism has got into many people’s brains as many Americans want to get rid of Mexicans and Muslims. They are trying to make everyone they don’t like leave the country.

The last word

We should all stop the hatred and love each other because if we don’t now, we will tear ourselves apart.
