• This is a really nice letter. I agree with you mate, and the leaders of America should prioritize healthcare so everyone can have access to it.

  • 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

    • Dear, Calvin
      Im am a student from Life Academy, and I agree with that a lot of people have experienced racism and has affected many people. One sentence that stands out to me is: ” 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.” I think this is really strong because even those people do racism they need to learn how to control themselves and not hurt people. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I love how you express yourself about this topic and maybe others too.

    • Great article Calvin,
      Thank you for your insight on this topic and shedding some light on the things a lot of people do not want to talk about due to its controversy. I believe that your statement when you say people are”hurt by racism, and it effects everybody’s everyday life” is extremely accurate and people are beginning to be desensitized to the ideas of racism. An example of this can be how frequently the “N” word is used in every day talk. Many people, of all races, use this word every day and do not realize the negative connotation that it has because of the events in the past. I found an article that you may be interested in, it is about how people are becoming more desensitized to racism and it may be a little controversial but I believe it provides a good point about how people are so insensitive.http://www.sheysmith.com/2008/07/09/are-you-desensitized-to-racism/

      Thank you for posting your article, I really enjoyed reading about it. It made me reflect on the things that are going on around the world as well as how much people are stereotyped because of their ethnicity. I am looking forward to your future posts. Best regards.

    • Calvin,
      This is a very beautifully written piece. Thank you for sharing. The leaders of America are truly putting the citizens at a disadvantage by allowing racism and divides to exist in our country. Thank you smooch for sharing this.
