Another African-American Teen, Alive in 2016

Police brutality and racism have been extreme issues this year, so I would like to ask, Why do you want to be president?

This year has been a lot, and I am not just focusing on one certain community, but on the United States as a whole. The United States have been through worse, but considering that even the candidates that you ran against, and yourself, were so eager to run for office, it makes a simple person like me wonder, Why do you want to be president to a nation who is going through an internal racial crisis? The political parties have torn America apart and have proven that racism is not only alive, but very much prevalent. So Dear President, I wish you luck, just as I ask, Why?
