Here are some suggestions.
Racism, one of today's largest social problems, is discrimination based on where you descend from. It is sheer madness that so much hate and anger can be caused by misapprehension and the lack of knowledge about other people. Some people believe that race defines the ability and character of the group as a collective. If one person is bad, an entire community is supposed to be bad. Such an ideology can suppress both justice and freedom. To judge others on the basis of where they come from doesn't stand to reason, or at least, it's not the way I think.
There was a time, though, when most people thought that way, when racism was acceptable, when it was permitted by law, but people's beliefs change and so their laws change, and with it the subsequent rise in racial tolerance. Obviously, in order to move forward we not only have to change the way we think, we also have to wait for the world to change the way they think. Realistically, getting rid of racism altogether might not be an attainable dream, even within my lifetime.
To get to know a person before you judge that person should be common sense. Don't sentence a person before giving that person a chance. If you donít like a person, thatís okay, as long as you don't base your decision on country of origin and/or skin color. Treat people equally, because you could be that person.
