The issue I discussed in this video revolves around Racism in the United States. I am passionate about this issue because it hasn’t been resolved since the colonial era. This issue is very significant yet nowadays people act as if it doesn’t exist since racism in a sense got better. However, these people must know that you can never just push away a problem because the conflict will come back to haunt you. In the past, activists have tried solving this conflict but they were never fully successful. If the activists start receiving aid from the victims, there is a chance racism can be solved. Yet individuals should acknowledge that this issue is not easy to be fixed. Some people have racism installed in their minds which is quite challenging to remove.
Before starting this project I didn’t know much about racism. All I knew was that racism was discrimination against a specific race. Plus from background knowledge, I knew that in the past the whites believed that they were the more superior race in the United States which is why slavery existed. Slaves were treated as if they weren’t human. However, after doing research I found out that there were many hate groups towards different races in the United States. Surprisingly the KKK stills exist. Plus the average unemployment rate in the United States for blacks is higher than for the average rate for whites. In addition, I have learned that the things Donald Trump suggested about Muslims and African Americans made racism more accepted. Thus, to end racism America should have a better president that believes everyone is equal. A president is supposed to be a good role model for its citizens and at the moment Donald Trump is setting a bad example for the United States by being racist.
