Do they even have a heart or what?

Proposal to improve tolerance

Main concern is racism

First of all if you want to stop racism you got to think: Why am I racist? Why do I want to quit? If you can answer these questions, you can stop racism. We have seen racism since forever, Racism just brings disagreements nothing good to our society.We should all understand by now we arent different .We are all the same maybe in our skin color ,we may be different but i believe there's no superior race . We don't want to end up like Hitler because it doesn't bring nothing good it just becomes a bigger problem.We aren't too late to stop this term called racism. Some ways we can help is be with more people from different races ,get to know them ,interact with them ,share customs and maybe try their foods. Like that we can explore other cultures and see that we are the same but we have different tradtions. We can also object to racist jokes and insults In school because today it is very commom. People may think is a joke but for other people its not .The result of just a JOKE can involve a big disagrement or maybe a fight. Stopping racist jokes can save a disagreement. I just think racism is a big concern today and it needs to stop.
