I'm Real Tired of Racism!

What really burns me up is people treating people like garbage because of skin color, ethnicity, race, religion, even sexuality!

This is the kind of world kids had to grow up with during the 1950s and 1960s

This is the kind of stuff people of Latino heritage have to face!

All he believed in was a world where everyone lived happily together. Now, I ask you, is that so wrong?
Nowadays, people think it's funny to make fun of other races. Such as stretching out your eyes with your fingers and speaking pidgin English, saying you're Asian, walking around with a bowler hat on and carrying an umbrella saying "Pip, pip, Cheerio!" in a severely horrible inaccurate accent saying you're British, eating watermelon saying you're black, saying you're Latino if more than 5 people are all related and live together.
