I agree that racism is still present in our society. After reading the article COLUMN: Racial injustice solution lies within us by John Dooman written on February 13, 2015, I realized racism has been around for a very long time and it’s not going away.
The article mentioned how the media distorts events that have to do with racial issues, and I completely agree. I believe that writers can alter a story purely to create more interest and have more cultural sensitivity.
I also agree with the writer when he says that racism will always be around. People can create opinions without even noticing it, and I believe the same thing can happen with a belief about another culture. However, I think that even though racism will never completely go away, we can all try our best to keep from having biased opinions towards another culture.
