Racism in the United States
With the inauguration coming up, I've been thinking about something- Racism. You see, I understand that electing the first black president of this country is an historic moment. Ok. It's been said. Must it be said over and over? Why do we still have racism in this country? We still have racism because of the great emphasis on things like "America's first black president" keep being tossed around. He's just a man. He's just the new president. He will be inaugurated like all of the presidents before him. If we stop emphasizing the differences, only then can we actually have a country that looks beyond the color of one's skin. Think about it.
