A lot people like to think that racial inequalities no longer exist and label those who do as blind racist whiners. This woman conclusively disproves that popular notion that racism is 100% dead. It is not dead, merely changed form. We must recognize it and continue working to fix these problems rather than brush them under the rug because you choose to turn a blind eye.

Can we stop lowering the standards in schools? When our fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence their English and way of speaking was impeccable. Now, most adults cannot speak or write better than a sixth grader. How sad.

Racism does not happen to just one group of people. I'm tired of it.

If children don't care about their friends skin color then why should we.

School curricula often gloss over the endless litany of injustices committed by the European race through history and omit the majestic histories and societies of racial minorities. Misinformation abounds and falsely/dangerously educates generations that Africa is an uncivilized continent, despite it being the birthplace of humanity and the landscape of thousands of years of beautiful, powerful civilizations. Misinformation told us that the Native Americans lost the battle against the European immigrants because of lesser skill. Misinformation omitted the plague that weakened the Native Americans. Misinformation omitted the Native Americans' victory over the Vikings. Misinformation omitted the Bracero program, Japanese internment, the Feminist movement, and the injustices daily leveled against the poor, the LGBTQIA community, and racial minorities.

When will movies about an independent, strong, and intelligent racial minorities become commonplace? At the very least, when will movies accurately portraying America's racist past become required? "The Help" portrays the White main character as the savior of the Black supporting characters, even though in reality, Black people raised themselves out of servitude. If you call this country, with its disproportionate rates of incarceration, poverty, and death fully devoid of remnants of slavery and sanctioned racism (You can't).

Shaming racists on social media might change the way we joke about and perceive reality, and therefore might change actions in reality.
