Racism in the U.S.

Putting an end to Racism in the U.S. will result in a friendlier environment for children to live in.

 Dear, Next President

Racism in the United States is getting out of hand. Everyone has witnessed racism, and that’s not ok.

It’s not right to make fun of somebody's differences. We should instead celebrate our differences. Did you know a black male born in New York in 2016 has a 32% chance of being arrested while a white male’s chances of being arrested are just 6%? That’s a huge difference, and that’s just a fraction of everyday racism.

Some people say that it’s not a big deal and that everybody gets discriminated against, but that doesn’t make it ok. Everyone should be treated the same. I personally don’t get discriminated against much, but I see it a lot in school and even outside of school. I've heard eople calling somebody of Indian decent dirty or somebody who may be Islamic a terrorist.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and hear more about the problems with Racism in our country.
