I believe (and I may be wrong) that racism and other such biases come from people’s desire to never be outcast— to feel as though there is someone lower than them in the “rankings”— and from their wish to never be wrong (at least, this seems to be the case in politics). Truthfully, 99.99% of the people in this world are AMAZING, but that .001% brings our society down.
How, in this day and age, can people still believe that one race or gender is better than another? Remember what we have in common: we are all homo sapiens, every single one of us. People don’t recognize that we all have so much more in common than we have different. I don’t mean to marginalize the differences though, which define us as unique and wonderful individuals. I do, however, wish for the utopian dream in which we all could love each other. Love is so powerful a force- mightier than loathing. Why can’t we be friends with the “loners” in school? You may be missing out on a chance to not only save someone’s life, but also to meet a new friend. It’s cheesy and cliche, but it is true.
I hope there will be a little more love in the world today. ❤
With all of my love,
