It’s sad to think that we live in a world where people are hated because of the color of their skin, where individuals of a race are all lumped into the same category, where people live in denial that prejudice and racism still exist.
People hear the word, “racism”, and automatically get defensive because of the history and ugliness in our country. They are so tired of the word that they won’t even acknowledge the fact that it truly does still exist.
They say we are holding on to the past, but in reality, it’s not in the past. It’s still in the present.
