Racism and profiling are one of the biggest struggles in today’s society. Everyone was raised differently and our parents views can guide us in the wrong directions at times, but that doesn’t determine your views, it doesn’t guide you to be someone who you’re not or want to be. All your parents can do is show you the world through their eyes, but when it comes to your life it’s time to see the world through your own. Seeing people by color, and categorizing them by beliefs and past experiences is a terrible way to see the world. No matter where you go in the world there will always be someone who is different in one way or another. Just because someone has darker skin than you, doesn’t mean you have nothing in common, but it does mean that your can create new bridges with people who have a different background than your own.
