but racism is not only whites against blacks.
any person can be racist against any other group, be it white, black, asian, mexican- it is important to remember that when fighting racism it is not one race alone, it is all races, and is about learning the struggles and fighting for equality for all. Spreading hate to fight hate only creates a bigger fire.
I admit I am white, and do not know first hand the struggles of others, but I am not racist and fight for equality for all. It saddens me when I encounter people of other ethnicities who instantly hate me for being white and privileged, for I do not hate them and do not agree with how they are treated. Hating me will not help the fight against racism, learning to get along and be equals is how racism is stopped.
I will not pretend to know the struggles or battles ahead, but I believe in equality and that is what I hope for and try for. My heart goes out to all the people suffering in Ferguson, and I hope the violence can end and people can begin seeking the truth and finding ways to communicate without hurting one another.
