We are indeed tired of waking up every day with news about hate crime or any form of racism in the American society. When will those white racist put away this “childish” behavior? How long will it take for them to be awakened to the reality that America isn’t a white country? Moreover, today’s America they enjoy came into being as per the toil of Black slaves several years ago. They should be stiffer punitive measures put in place to deal with culprits of hate crimes. By so doing, we will be fully convinced that the country isn’t in support of this menace. But until then, we continue to stand against any form racial abuse against Black people. People of color have a place in the American society and deserves to live happily without fear just like any citizen of a different race. “As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it—whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash” Harper Lee.
