Equal Rights (LGBTQ, Race)

In the end, we are all humans.

Dear Future President,

I believe we have been treating people, different than ourself, bad. We all deserve to be treated equally whether we are different than each other or not. Our color of our skin does not define who we are. Neither does our sexuality. This affects teens who are figuring out their sexuality and who they are publicly. Discrimination against racism and sexuality I find stupid and ignorant.

''Twenty nine states lack anti-discrimination laws that include sexual orientation or gender identity, and there is no federal law protecting access to employment, housing and public accommodation, like hotels or restaurants, for L.G.B.T.Q people.'' said Mr. Roybal from a The New York Times Article. We deserve to encourage people instead of discriminating them based on who they are. They say 56% Black Americans believe face racism more as the 16% of Whites agree. An article of Mic say "47% of hate crimes are racially motivated. Second place, a tie between religion and sexual orientation, doesn't even come close, accounting for only 19% of hate crimes, respectively." I agree with that based on research I did. They believe black men are far more likely to be shot and killed by police than white men.

Lesbian. Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queers are all humans right? Though why don't others treat them like they are? What different does it make if they are not the same person we are? We are all built differently. We all have different opinions but, that does not have to change the way we think about each other. Kids, teens mostly get bullied for their race and sexuality too much and I don't think that should be allowed. These problems should be taken more serious. Freedom of speech isn't even taken as a good thing anymore and that should be a problem "The Next President" should talk about publicly.
