In my opinion racism isnt needed. i mean we all have our opinions but still. my name is shania im 17 and this is my opinion on racism.

I fully beleive that racism shoukd have stopped when it was done away with. there is good and bad in every race. i know i am young and still have alot to learn and noone will really take this seriouse or anything but it needs to be herd. I think that there are blacks, whites, mexican, indian, and so many more races that are good and bad. i think that those who do bad things should be punished and not give the whole race a bad outlook. i mean arent we taught that if you have nothing polite to say keep your mouth shut. our school systems are not very smart about the way they punish us. i think that they are biased on many subjects of punishment. i think that it should all be equal rights no matter what. there are some very nice black people and just because a few of them act like idiots and same for whites dont get me wrong. but just because of a few they all get a bad name. i also think that segregation in the work place is wrong because i know several black people that work there buts off and still have a bad reputation because of a select few. I think it should be based on personality, and the one is to another. sorry to rant on this sight but this needed to be said and maybe if people realize the younger groups are taking this in then they'll be smarter.
