Being born in the U.S alone should be a privilege. Privilege to be in a country of opportunities, a country where your dreams can come true. And sadly that is not true; I tear in sorrow and shame of how people of color are being treated. I cannot imagine the fear a person goes through because they are of a different color. Unfortunately it is the country we are living at the moment. Even when the world is going through a crisis people have the bitterness and hate in their heart. God created us to love one another, not to kill one another. It is time to stand up, and not let our differences defeat us. I stand with my brothers and sisters in the black community. We are all one voice, I am a Mexican American, and I am not illegal, or in a gang. Yet, others might identify us this way. We have seen many Americans take advantage of the minority communities, because they think we have no rights or a voice. We are all one voice, and together we will stand for what is right. Let us start by teaching our future generations about love and kindness.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love.” — Nelson Mandela
