Don’t judge based on race

If the world could stop seeing people by race and judged people by things they can choses this world will be a much better place.

Everyone’s the same and we should try to see people like that.

Why is it when someone has blue, brown, green, gray or any color of eyes not a judgement is made. Then if someone has a different color of skin than you, some might judge. The fact is you have no control on what color your skin is. Just like you don’t have control over your eye color, hair color, or your height. We need to stop looking at people as white or black and strat looking at them as people with needs and wants. 

I’m sad to say that one of my sets of grandparents judge their daughter’s husband based on his skin color. 

When my aunt announced that she was going to get married, me and my family were very excited. The man she was marrying was in my opinion, funny, smart, and very nice. He worked for the Jazz, an NBA team, and gave me and my family some tickets every once in a while. Unfortunately my grandparents judged him because of his black skin.  

They would not let their daughter’s new husband in their house. They did not even come to their wedding. He was not talked about at their house and they acted like my aunt was still single. 

When it came time that another one of my uncles got married, my Black uncle was not allowed even though he was invited by the bride and groom.  

If only my grandparents could see past the fact that he has a different color of skin, they could find an amazing son-in-law. 

Color of skin is only that, the color of skin. Yes people should be proud of their history and ancestors, and their culture. People should look at someone and not see the color, but them as a person. 

In the media today there is so much push on color of skin, there’s protest about black lives mattering, which is very true, but instead of seeing them as a “black life” we need to see them as a “life” the same as a white man’s life or a black woman’s life. We are all humans and we need to start looking at people like that. 

Too many people are seeing people as black lives or white lives. When you look at someone you will notice the color of their skin but that should not let it affect your opinion on them. When you see that their skin is white, that’s all it is white skin. They had no control over that. But they do have control over their actions and that’s how you should judge people. 

The actions a person takes says a lot about a person, but still understands people make mistakes, and just because they did one bad thing doesn’t make them a bad person. That goes with the color of people’s skin. Just because they are white does not mean they have a perfect life or a bad life. Same for any other person. 

If we start she people as people. And not see people as white or black lives and we judged people on the person they are, I think a lot of problems in this world would go away. 

Be proud of your past and history, you should celebrate your culture. 

There are traditions that families have and some may be celebrating their color of skin. That is prexfly fine and you should be proud of that but judging someone on that is the problem. 

 Many families will have their holdily that some might not, but we are all people and should be treated with respect and kindness no matter what the color of skin you are.

If someone were to go up to a person and not like them, be more “careful” around them, or even decide to be their friend, just because they may have blue eyes, that would be outrageous, yet people do that with the color of people’s skin. 

 When the world is ready to stop seeing people’s skin color, the world will be a lot more peaceful. 

Start by when you meet someone, to look past their looks and see them as a person,. if you do this you will not only be able to look past race and other things that can change a person’s opinion of someone.
