I feel like Covid brought everyone together in a way and gave a glimpse of unity within humanity, but it also showed the dark side of the world that is usually hidden. As there was nothing going on, so the media was actually reporting these hate crimes and racist attacks for once and I feel like it shed light on how bad it actually is for Minorities around the world especially in the US and even the UK. I feel like the pandemic gave the entire world a reality check.
The people of the world today, they are a little different from how they were before, they no longer usually enjoy what they enjoyed in peace without being homophobic, racist, we can no longer be totally free, we cannot be ourselves for fear of being murdered, harass us both men and women, feeling powerless because of it
the world had changed a lot, along with the people living on it.. not everyone but most people, are what make the world a bad place.. there are racists, criminals.. all types of bad people in the world, but there are also good people here.. I don’t really consider anyone as good or bad, btt seeing everything that’s going on in the world right now. I blame the people, && I believe that people today are living a more isolated life. I think the past is better than the present.. but that’s my opinion..
I walked into school with a bandanna on and a black girl next to me walked in with a headband that kind of looks like a bandanna. They let me in but told her she had to take it off, saying it was associated with gang violence. Not dress code violations, gang violence. That was racist. That doesn’t make the school racist. Even if multiple people have had this experience, that makes that teacher racist, not the school. America doesn’t have systematic racism, it has racist people. If I go to a cvs and one of the employees are being sexist, that doesn’t make all cvs’s sexist, it makes that person sexist and they deserve to be fired. Cancel culture has gotten out of hand and needs to be controlled.
