by

Racism is still a prevalent issue in our society, despite all the progress we’ve made, there’s still much work to be done in order to rid ourselves of this ugly disease. We need to start by educating ourselves and learning about the different forms that racism can take. We also need to be proactive in calling out racism when we see it and standing up for those who are victims of discrimination. Only by working together can we hope to finally eradicate racism from our world.

Racism is an insidious problem that has been plaguing our society for far too long. Though we like to think of ourselves as an evolved and progressive people, the truth is that racism is still very much alive and well in our world today. Just take a look at the recent events that have been unfolding in the United States. The mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, the Ferguson riots, and the Trayvon Martin case are just a few examples of how racism is still a very real and pressing issue in our country.

And it’s not just limited to the United States. Racism exists all over the world, in every country and culture. It’s time for us to face up to this ugly truth and do something about it. We can no longer afford to ignore the problem or pretend that it doesn’t exist.

So what can we do to fight racism? First and foremost, we need to educate ourselves about the different forms that it can take. Racism isn’t just about one group of people hating and discriminating against another group. It can be much more subtle than that. It can manifest itself in the way we speak, the way we think, and even the way we act.

We need to be aware of our own personal biases and prejudices and work to eradicate them. We need to be mindful of the way we speak about and interact with people of other cultures. We need to be allies to those who are victims of racism, and stand up against discrimination whenever and wherever we see it. Only by working together can we hope to finally rid our world of this blight. It’s time for us to take a stand and fight racism in all its forms.
