America still has a problem with racial and sexual orientation discrimination.

Dear Future President,

Since you are a president now, there are problems in the world. My main problem is discrimination. Ever since gay marriage was legalized, lots of protesters are everywhere. Protesters did a shooting and killed and wounded innocent bystanders. This could lead danger to homosexual people. Besides homosexuallity, transgender is also a problem, with not knowing which gender bathrooms to go to, and people hating transgender people. These people who protests the gay marriage and hate transgender are like traditional Christians.

There is one more thing that is a problem, race. Even though slavery is banned, there is this one thing where Caucasian policemen are shooting African-American people. Where all over social media there is the #BlackLivesMatter. African-American mobs are everywhere saying that black lives matter and walk around like a parade. Black lives do matter, apparently any lives matter. There is no way that people can kill other people just by their dislikes, unless they are terrorists then please kill them.

My point is, there is no need to hate on others because they are different. We are the same people but we are different from our personalities, orientation, and our skin color. Stop discrimination, it’s not fair for others to suffer from hate. There are more problems in the society world right now, but I choose discrimination because that’s how I feel that is wrong.
