Well. This is awkward. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

So yeah. This is a post for my 11th grade history class. I am supposed to pick a topic and write about it. The topic that I will be doing is race. Race has been a common theme for most of the 20th and 21st centuries in the US of A. There have been many debacles in (especially) the 20th century, and even in the 21st. For instance, there was the Civil Rights movement in the 1950's and 60's. Even today, there are STILL things concerning race, such as #BlackLivesMatter, and Donald Trump's view on Latinos. So, what I'm trying to get across here is that race is still a big factor in our everyday lives, and it still is relevant.

I chose a link that would help me get my point across as well. This link concerning bias among high school sports members hits my topic head on. Race is still an issue. We still have people not doing what they are supposed to do, we still have racism, and we still have discrimination. Now, I am not saying that everyone is perfect, in fact, no one is, but we need to understand why discrimination is still a problem. That's all I have to say for now, until next time!

  1. Nathan, I completely agree with you. Racism is still a concerning issue today. Its very sad that today in day people still don't accept others for who they are.
