What if

by Edelweiss

It is a known fact that we are all born dying, and we will face death. How and when you face it can or cannot be in your power.

Unless you live under a rock, than you must be aware that in this world there are two types of people, good and bad. That’s why Mom always reminded you to “And don’t talk to strangers!” Anyway, because of all the shootings a lot of hatred and tension has been created against white and black people. Everyone is under the impression that white people and black people don’t like each other. Separation of race had resulted in a bitter feud, hate instead of love is thrown around, chaos instead of peace.

Have you ever stopped to consider it may not be what it’s made out to be? Just because the media says white people hate black people because of their skin color, doesn’t mean it’s true.

What if, it was just good guy vs bad guy? What if, we are told lies by the media to believe racism exist when it never did in the first place? What if, all of this is just a distraction from the real threat?

Black lives do matter, but so do white, brown, pink and blue! The color of skin doesn’t make a difference because all lives matter! So instead of separating into racist groups, why can’t we come together as one?

Hello Remington38 here for a reveiw!

I really like this essay. It's short sweet and to the point which is good because for a topic such as this I have seen where people fill pages after pages of opinions and rants that is completely unessesary. He last paragraph stands out the most to me and strong and well worded. Another thing I admired about this was you were able to put it in a way where even a younger person would be able to understand it. With the comparison of the mother always telling to be aware of the good and the bad most people are going to understand and connect to that. This was written very well. Have a good day :)
