After I read the comments that were posted on this girls photo I did some research that deeply disturbed me. I looked up some statistics. I found the FBI's latest hate crimes statistics. I wasn't shocked to find out that hate crime is 47% racially based. Though I was astonished to discover that 6 933 offences were reported. Why are we so blind to the hate that occurs in our world? Why aren't we trying to do something to stop these crimes? The world is blind. We go on with our daily lives not realizing that others lives are being affected. How can we be so inhumane?
Freedom. We take it for granted. We don't realize how many people's lives aren't free. Weather you are targeted for racial reasons, sexual orientation reasons, religious reasons or anything like that it isn't right. It shouldn't be tolerated. Not all Muslims are terrorists. Not all priests are rapists. Not all white people are racist. Stereotypes shouldn't hold people back. Stereotypes shouldn't dictate who we are. Hate crimes are a growing issue that needs to be talked about. It's a problem that needs to end. We only get one life so we shouldn't spend it targeting others who are different then us.
