You can help erase racism.
You CAN make a difference.
You see racism every day. It is all over the place…in the workplace, in schools, in stores, on the street…everywhere.
What you can do is this: let your voice be heard.
When someone makes a racist comment, say something; don’t just let it go.
When you see something that a corporation does that appears racist, write letters to the executives of the company with your complaints and ask for them to stop what they are doing, or ask for an explanation of what happened.
If you are a student and see racism at your school, report it to your teachers and administrators.
Many acts of racism and discrimination are against the law, so anyone who is denied housing, a loan , a job, etc, on the basis of race, should take LEGAL action and file letters of complaint one after the other.
And go to the MEDIA if you have solid evidence of racism against any company, school, organization, etc.
You MUST take action.
I am greatly inspired by the heroes of the civil rights era. They fought racism valiantly and intelligently, day after day.
Dr. Martin Luther King is one of the greatest heroes the United States has ever known. He knew racism would not go away on its own; he knew he needed to wage a battle. But he also knew he needed to wage a SMART battle.
Dr. King was assassinated because of his battle against racism and segregation.
We need to do our best to follow his example and not let any racism occur without a strong REPONSE and ACTION.
So speak up, write letters, call the media, file complaints…TAKE ACTION when you see racism.
You will then be part of the solution, and not part of the problem.
God bless you.
