Dear Mr. President: i will like to talk to you about racism and how racism is affecting our lives as human beings. Racism is happening a lot around the world and it is making people turn on each other and cause violence, so I hope you do something about this issue because it needs to stop.
According to a website, racism is “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race”. 43 percent of the people in the United States say that racism is good as the way it is right now and i think that is ridiculous because racism is a big problem and it needs to change now.
“Black and latino men are three times more likely than white man to be stopped by the police and have their cars searched, even though white man are four times more likely to have weapons or drugs.” This quote proves that policeman will most likely search through a black or latino’s car than a white person car. Even though that the police finds drugs in a white person car, they will not get a bigger punishment than a police officer finding drugs in a black or latino’s car according this quote, “Black youths arrested for drug possession are 48 times more likely to wind up in prison than white youths arrested for the same crime under the same circumstances.”
People are turning against each other because of racism. One race thinks that they are the better race, but another race says that is not true and that they are the better race. Even though no race is better than another race because we are all equal and people say that is not right because of police brutality happening around of how police men would shoot a black man thinking that the man was going to pull out a gun and That is not fair at all.
Everybody is affected by racism and there is nothing to stop it unless by somebody that will speak and inspire the people to stop hating on each other just become friends, so we can decrease the violence in the world. That person is you Mr. President because you're the only one that can inspire the United States and maybe the world to stop racism once and for all.
