Dear Leaders of America,
Howdy, I am senior Calvin Dang, and I am currently a senior at Fremont High school. From what I learn while researching Charlottesville is that the city of Charlottesville is a city of history. I also learned that the Charlottesville was having the Unite the Right rally also commonly known as the Charlottesville Rally, and that one protester died at the Rally and with a total of 33 people injured, mostly protesters were injured.
My life as a teenager growing up in America is pretty good. I have all the basic things I need to live and survive and go to school. I didn’t have that much hardship in real life but in school I faced a lot of hardships. Life outside of school is pretty good and nice but then in school it gets real hard and uneasy.
The issues I think I would our (elected) leaders to prioritize right now is Racism. Everyone is hurt by Racism, it affects everybody’s everyday life. For example, most African Americans that were shot in America by police officers were shot for no real good reason. And when it was time for the police officers to get their punishment they don’t receive any real punishment at all and were free to walk. This issue should be their priority because if we could somehow get rid of Racism in this world then we can all have a better life, everyone will benefit from it.
Solutions or Ideas I offer to American leaders who would for my advice about those issues is raise awareness of Racism and how it can impact someone’s life. Another solution to getting rid of Racism is having everyone learn about other people and their culture too. Not assuming things that you don’t really know about people like for example saying African Americans love nothing more than eating fried chicken and drinking kool-aid.
I wish the future of America would look like a country where everyone can be proud to be part of.
