Racism Against Black People
Racism has caused many regrettable issues in our world. Nationality and color of skin should not be a reason for prejudice. Ignorance is mostly the originator for prejudgment of a person of a different cultural group. Some bitter consequences racism has brought are physical abuse, emotional abuse and suppression to a shallow thinking of human beings. African Americans are a group who has suffered from racism for an interminable time.
Genres is a word we use in society to divide human beings in groups. Not only there are the feminine and masculine genres, but we can also make terms for age, ways of thinking and acting, economic status, race, etcetera. Racism then falls under the prejudice of a different genre than the majority. Black people in the United States have been marked as this minority. They have had to stand the abuse from ignorant people who do not see above the color of their skin. Racists also scar these people with characteristics that are not necessarily true. For example, African Americans supposedly have less education than the “normal” citizens in the US. This does not mean that when one of them crosses your path, he or she will be uneducated, but racists immediately think so. Shallow people have expressed their anger towards these elite with hate crimes, including massacres, physical abuse and condescendence. Making a mockery out of vulnerable people who cannot do much about this intolerance is a shame. I admire those who stay strong and do not care much about what other people think or say about them.
Racist people are making this a suppressed world under the superficial thinking about other human beings. By thinking this way, the do not help in any way to progress of anything. Prejudice against minorities is ignorance which will not go away until everyone starts seeing beyond the race. Africans Americans are as smart as anyone and they have a lot to offer for our nation. If no one listens to them, these great ideas will cease and we will continue to set back in society. Imagine what the world would look like if everyone was tolerant with others, mingled with each other, and exchanged ideas for the better. The world would have fewer problems for a start.
Even though the racism and bad treat of dense people in this world, African Americans have stayed strong. We see Phoenix Jackson in A Worn Path who shows her indomitable personality pass the uneducated fool who tries to make fun of her. Black people have proved they can do as well as any white person in life, and this has included the disrespect from others. Therefore African Americans have demonstrated to be even tougher and smarter.
