I'm trying to resolve the terrible effects of racism. I feel like I can start a movement, but I just know it's not going to work because not everyone cares about this issue as much as I do.
People don't realize how much this issue effects people. They feel like it doesn't matter that much to be dealt with. They don't take the issue serious at all and that's why it will never be resolved. And I just feel like that is a really selfish thing to do because its all of our country it doesn't just belong to one race and think that's what people fail to understand.
This country has to make a change for the better. Because if we don't, I can see it going very down hill.
