Diversity and racism is one of humanity’s biggest problems because they cause a lot of trouble where it shouldn’t exist.
First of all, what is racism? Racism is when someone disrespects or puts someone down-physically or mentally- because of their difference on color and race. Diversity is the difference between humans in race, religion, height, weight and everything else like background or finance state.
Racism is a bigger problem than it seems. Disrespect is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what people do to others they think are worse. The problem is that racism always existed and will never stop. The best example there is when it comes to racism is Adolf Hitler and his will to prove everyone that the “German race”, white skinned people with blonde hair-usually- and blue eyes, are the best at every aspect of life. The worst thing humans can do in regards of racism is unimaginable to the human mind.
But diversity isn’t always treated wrong. In some countries, people from all races and religions are accepted and that’s because people in those parts of the world believe that in order for the world to be at peace, people must learn to treat each other right. To care for people that differ in appearance, religion or race.
Treating diversity the right way is the first step humanity needs to take in order to gradually fix our broken world.
