Are people still racist in America? Have things changed since Martin Luther King died? Back in the day, Americans had some racism. Some things have gotten better, but now we have a lot of it going around. Some people here are very racist in this state. People don't hang out with other people just because of their race. We should just forget the color of our skin and don't be racist any more, because this is causing a lot of bad things every where.
People are so racist in so many kinds of ways. People are just being racist because their skin color or where they come from. Therefore, some Americans hate each other because immigrants are born in Mexico and come over here to work and get money to live. For example, people call immigrants "illegal aliens" or "wetbacks" or "beaners." People should be blind and forget their color of skin and just move on with life.
Back in the 1960's, Rosa Parks was a big protester. She needed to sit in the back of the bus but she didn't because she said that we are all equal. She refused to sit in the back of the bus and they sent her to jail as a result. Rosa Parks stood up for what she be lived in. Martin Luther King Jr. also was a big protester too. He used to go to everywhere to stand up for what he be lived in. He wanted no more segregated schools, restaurants and buses. He said that people should forget their differences in color and get along. No one should be left behind.
We have come a long way to be here where we are right now. We as people have been successful in a lot of things to get our rights here in America and other places. Blacks protested until they kicked them out of the place. Latinos stood up for what they believed. We all came as one. Cesar Chavez went to places like MLK did and gave speeches to have our rights. So if a person has something to fight for STAND UP HIGH and fight for what is right. All of us can change the world.
