And this is why in order to end racism, we need to get to the root of the problem. It starts with the history and then works its way towards the systems in our country that exists and the question of how it can be changed. It continues onto the politicians and leaders who are willing to change them. And lastly, the will of the man to change it. Without understanding these elements, we will never be able to find out how racism originated, we will never be able to understand the cultural and historic backgrounds of each ethnic group and we will never be able to understand the history. While some say “History is history; it’s the future we’re worried about,” we should use this moment and learn about the past in the present- right now. Only then will we be sure about our future, living in peaceful existence and harmony.
