Racism is and always will be an issue in America. No matter how hard you try, you will
have racism, homophobia, sexism, and every kind of ignorant hatred in this world. What
hit me hardest was when they described “I don’t see you as black”. I had never heard
this term before, and after having it explained to me, I understand. Being black is part of
who some people are, and by trying to erase that, they are trying to erase their
character. I experience this with my sexuality. Many believe that bisexuality is non-
existent and that you have to like one gender more than the other. By saying that
bisexuality doesn’t exist, they are trying to take that part of me away. I will admit that
erasure is better than discrimination, but it is still unacceptable. Another point that struck
a chord with me is the concept of privilege. White, straight, men are privileged beyond
belief, and they refuse to believe that. If you are white, you have an advantage over
those who are not. If you are a man, you have an advantage over those who are not. If
you are straight, you have an advantage over those who are not. White men are
statistically more likely to get a job offer than black men. Men earn roughly 30% more
than women do. Homosexuals aren’t even allowed to be MARRIED in some states
(we’re making progress there, but seriously people?). Racism is ugly. Any form of
ignorant hatred is ugly. It will never go away completely, but we can do our best to
reduce our hatred from the world
