it was amazing
Recommended for: Anyone and everyone
Read in October, 2007

That racism is all but too real. It was written before my time, sadly it's still going on today by my peers. To have older men and women in this world that are racist, I somewhat understand. It's a lifetime of behavior that would be very hard to break. When it's my generation that is racist, I feel nothing for them. They know better, look at the world we live in, we have so much being thrown at us that says "no that's not right" or "this is a more educated view of the situation" I know that racism will always be in the world, but it's up to us to try and teach the new generation that there is no need for it, that we are all the same. That's my two cents.
