We talked about race today in class. I know that the majority of people like to try and avoid this topic as much as possible. But the one thing that I would like to talk about is how we focus to much on the cover of the book instead of what is on the inside. It is a personal thing of mine but it doesn't matter what they look like to me I am just concerned with what type of person they are. Because there are both good and bad people of every color and nationality.
I think it is our derivative to put the effort forward to get to know people instead of just assuming people or races are a certain way. I also believe that we are all capable of racism but that doesn't mean that all of us our racists. Because it is human nature to blame other people or races for our mistakes instead of taking responsibility for our actions. Thus allowing for prejudice and segregation.
All we can do is just be responsible for our own actions and be accepting for how people are and understand that different cultures are different than ours. But that doesn't mean that they are bad or evil.
