Everyone in our country deserves to be treated equally.

Dear Future President,

I would like to address the topic of equality. Both racism and sexism. Everyone in our country deserves to be treated equally, whether they are a rich white man or a poor muslim woman, we all deserve the same rights. Racism has been a problem in our country since the first white settlers arrived here in 1602, that is over four hundred years. Slavery ended 153 years ago and sadly we still have racism today. Some of the worst race problems are the unprovoked killings of african american citizens.

 I am not only talking about racism, another civil problem gripping our country is the wage gap between men and women. It is a known fact that men are paid better than women even when the women work harder and longer. Men are also elected into seats of power more regularly.  As an American citizen I am sad to see how poorly we are dealing with problems that should have ended half a century ago. If someone is an american citizen they should have every right stated in the constitution.

All men and women are created equal no matter what you look like or which language you speak you should still be treated the same as anyone else.  People should not be stereotyped or categorized because of who they are or what they look like, this racial prejudice is one of the worst problems of the twenty first century. The conflicts that result from differences of race and class can be very costly and damaging.
