  • Dear John:

    I am impressed with your poem, “I believe that variety is necessary for a healthy life” because I did not know or understood the importance of eating different kinds of food, or the benefits it had on my body.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Exercise is almost as important as eating. If you don’t exercise you can…Read More

      I am moved by your article, “Why are People Racist?,” You had a strong argument and you went in depth.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “.Racism can be revealed through people’s actions as well as their attitudes.Racism is more than just words, beliefs and actions.” I think this is strongly worded and put things into perspective.Your post reminds me when I was in england and i was in the predominantly white neighborhood and I had the cops called on me because I look like i didn’t “belong”. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because post because you’re a good writer and you really put certain elements into perspective.

    • Dear Tania,

      I love the way how you explained why people are racist & how you used evidence and stated your sources. I indeed agree with you with the fact that the reason why people are racist is because we blame other people for our problems & we take our anger out on other people. We live in a society where we have to be more superior towards one another which causes racism among with prejudice discrimination.

    • Dear Tania
      I am excited about your post. ”Why are people racist?”.because… It gives me the exact information about why are people racist and how can people be racist ,Your post gives me the mindset that people has a lot of way to be racist. [for example ]
      Racism can be revealed through people’s actions as well as their attitudes .Racism is more than just words, beliefs and actions. It includes all the barriers that prevent people from enjoying dignity and equality because of their race. It can also be reflected in systems and institutions.because… It gives me the exact information about why are people racist and how can people be racist ,Your post gives me the mindset that people has a lot of way to be racist. ´
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ´´Some people are racist because we are quick to judge, it could be by appearance,or personality.We also blame people by our problems,when we feel angry or frustrated, we often look for someone else to blame for our problems.´
      I think this is excellent because…Racism has different standards and a lot of people has a lot of reasons to be racist ,racism is not always about the color of your skin ,it can be about how you dress or how you carry yourself .
      Another sentence that i found was: “Ergo, people are racist because they feel as if other people they consider different may harm them so that’s why they segregate people by color,nationality,etc.,” This stood out for me because ….It gives me a understanding of how and why people are racist .
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because…You really inspire me as a young black girl who has a long way to go and life and your post encouraged me to be strong and brave because people find a lot of ways to be racist and they have a lot of ways people can show racism.

    • Dear Tania :

      I am moved by your post, “Why are People Racist,” because it truly shows how racism is a problem and it shouldn’t go unnoticed. Additionally, your article is just one of the many articles out there spreading awareness about racism which helps the spread of the topic and gets us closer to limiting racism.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “people are racist because they feel as if other people they consider different may harm them so that’s why they segregate people by color, nationality, etc.” I think this is accurate because many people feel that their color of their skin is superior to others, but that is not correct. Everyone should have equal rights not based on the color of their skin.

      Another sentence that I noticed was: “Racism is more than just words, beliefs and actions. It includes all the barriers that prevent people from enjoying dignity and equality because of their race.It can also be reflected in systems and institutions..” This stood out for me because it’s true. Some people are out there in the world self conscious for things they shouldn’t be, such as the color of their skin. They are wasting their time trying to please others when then they should be enjoying their life.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was discriminated against by the color of my skin. I felt like I was treated unfairly, and that nobody should ever be treated like that or do something like that to another person. Why spend time trying to bring people down when you could just mind your own business.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your ideas and concepts truly intrigue me.

      I also write stuff about not just racism, but additionally police brutality, another problem connected to racism. If you would like to check it out, I would happily share you the link:

      Enjoy the rest of your day; thank you!

    Dear Nayelin:

    I am amazed by your poem, “Nayelin’s Where I’ From,” because in this poem you let us know you more by the type of food you like to eat and the holidays you like to celebrate.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is : “I am from hard workers,” I think this is very delightful because you are making clear that your family…Read More
