The whole problem we have here, is that we see each other as a color instead of as people.
Because of of slavery and discrimination in a near past, we are now over compensating with a form of reverse discrimination against whites. Not as
much as what the blacks originally had to experience, but the second you create something exclusive, you are discriminating against anyone who
doesn't fit your "mold".
The blacks were always told they couldn't use the white restroom, they couldn't sit with whites on the bus, there was always a line, you stay on
your side and we'll stay on ours. Then we abolished that line. The point of it was to mix, to be equal. But that didn't happen. For whatever
reason, the blacks began to draw smaller lines that the whites couldn't cross. Maybe it was because they felt more comfortable banning together,
maybe they didn't trust the whites after what we had done to them. I don't know. But after all effort of civil rights movement, something went
wrong. The blacks were finally allowed to drink off the same water fountain, it was a victory for equal rights, but instead of blending with whites
and coming together as a culture of americans, the blacks needed to continue to segregate themselves, but this time on their terms.
Fast forward a few more years and things are still very black and white. We are still a class that is separated. By both culture and laws. And
while the laws were meant to be equal to all man, there are special circumstances for minorities. Now minorities have gone from below equal rights,
to above equal rights. When one class is held above the other, just for the color of their skin, then that can only mean the other class in being
held down, just because the color of their skin. So we are back to discrimination again, only this time against whites.
Just because you are white doesn't mean you are born with a trust fund and an education. We have to work as hard as everyone, but when you come from
nothing and work hard all your life to make sure your kids can have a better life than you did, and you are getting told you can't get the
scholarship or the job because we have to give it to the minority, well then it will anger you. You are not being treated equally as an american
As long as a line is drawn, regardless of who drew it..... as long as discrimination exists, racism will still exist. It is a deliberate separation
of race, and it needs to stop. Starting today, we should make it illegal for any forms at school, or on the job, or from the government to ask what
our race is. People should stop filling in the blank. Any clubs or programs that target any specific race and exclude others should be illegal. In
a truly equal society, it won't matter what race we are. We can be judged by our character, our talents and our skills. Maybe then we will finally
grow in the right direction as a society.
