Many people think of discrimination as a historical problem. Not only has it been going on throughout history, but discrimination against gender, sexual preference, race, religion, etc., is still continuing today.
As important as it is to be proud of your religion, sexuality or race, there are people who can’t be proud of themselves without bashing other people’s race, religion, etc. In the 2016 presidential election, it is devastating to see candidates being openly racist, sexist and discriminating. What is just as upsetting is that there are massive amounts of people supporting these candidates.
All in all, we are all created equal. It’s your choice to decide what kind of person you want to be: part of a hateful, narrow-minded world or one of a unified world.
