Racism is something that, unfortunately, has been all too common throughout human history. It is an issue that has been deeply ingrained in our society and has caused pain, suffering, and injustice for so many people. As a nine-year-old, I am amazed by how pervasive this issue is and how it continues to be a major problem today. I can’t help but think about how much better our world would be if we could end racism and move forward as one human race.
Racism is an issue that has many different forms. There is a lot of racism that is based on physical characteristics, such as the color of a person’s skin, hair, or eyes. But there is also racism that is based on gender, religion, sexual orientation, and even socio-economic status. No matter what form it takes, racism is wrong and should be stopped.
So how do we end racism? I believe that it starts with education. We need to educate people on the history of racism and its effects on minority groups. We also need to educate people on the importance of understanding and respecting one another, regardless of our differences. This education should be taught in schools and in communities all over the world.
Additionally, we need to make sure that people are held accountable for their actions. When someone makes a racist statement or does something that is discriminatory, they should be held responsible for their words or actions. This could include a person being reprimanded or even fired from their job.
Finally, we need to advocate for legislation that helps to end racism. This could include things like laws that protect minority groups from discrimination in employment or housing. It could also include laws that make it illegal for people to commit acts of hate against others because of their race, ethnicity, or religion.
I am only nine years old, but I know that we can do something to end racism. We must be willing to put in the work and make sure that everyone understands that racism is wrong. Only then will our world be free of this awful issue.
