Racism is not only an issue between African Americans and Whites. It also an issue with women, gays, and transgenders. The problem with racism is that people do not understand that we all came from somewhere to get to America. Racism has occurred for many years but through out the years I feel that the subject has lightened up a bit but I do think that this country will never fully accept everyone for who they are and the people will always be prejudice. Though people may not be under slavery in America anymore some people are treated so poorly almost like slaves. Racism shouldn’t be as big of an issue but somehow we make it one. We were all created the same and we are all equal.
