Equality in 2015

Alright, this is going to be another mini-rant post about something I've been thinking about a lot. So if rant posts aren't your favorite, or you're easily offended, I'd stop reading and come back next week for the next post. Thanks (:

It has been about three weeks since we remembered the anniversary of 9/11. However, as the days went by we stopped thinking about it and went back to hating others.

Why is it that we come together as a nation on days like 9/11 and treat each other like normal human beings. But 9/12 rolls around and we go back to hating people and treating different races like aliens?

We shouldn't pick and choose the days we treat everyone as Americans. Everyone deserves to be treated equally every second of every day. So why don't we do that? Why is that so hard for people to understand?

People say they were "raised that way" or "it's too late to change." But if you are able to recognize the need for a change, it is never too late to make it. You may not be able to change other people, but you certainly can change your view of those people.

I don't know about anyone else, but I've been over this whole "racism" and "inequality" thing for...umm...ever. This is 2015, why is this still an issue? We claim to be a country that believes all people are created equal. So start acting like it, please.

Until next time,

Very insightful and so intelligent. I so support you. I had the same revelation at about 14/15.
