Little known facts

    Today we are living in a world where people choose to ignore what is happening right in front of them. Better yet, they’ll believe that things aren’t happening because they are not witnessing it with their own eyes. 

    The truth of the matter is that racism in America is real. People of color are being targeted, prosecuted for no good reason, and killed in the streets.This is happening every single day in this country. Yes, worse things occur in other countries around the world. Yes, people die every day. And yes, this has being going on for centuries. BUT, that does not mean that we can just sit back and let it happen.
    By believing that racism doesn’t exist just because you haven’t experienced it for yourself, is like denying that a war in our history books because you didn’t fight in it. It still happened either way, look at the facts and the statistics. Not doing anything about it or just saying, “Well, I’m not racist so it’s okay”, also contributes to the problem. People need to understand that this issue is greater than just one individual and there is not just one person at fault. It is a whole system that has been corrupt for ages, and we can chose to comply to it  or fight against it. What will it be?
