occurring issue has been constant in countless different occasions, such as school shootings,gang attacks, terrorist attacks, etc. Racism is defined as “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonismdirected against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.”Many issues with Racism is the constant approval of it in the view of society. Many people todaystill practice racism, and the time for it to end is coming to us in revolting speed.Throughout History, tribes in Africa were left undisturbed, and only fought with other tribesof similar nature. Same things could be said about Chinese dynasties, or Mexican civilizations,and the issue has always prevailed. Millions have been slaughtered over the years in the namefor Pride, and sometimes, the pride is just for a specific type of people over others. In a relatablebut not completely the same situation, when the Holocaust was occurring, millions were slain justto please one ruler, and to appease to a new society of people under the reich. Jewish is a morereligious construct, but nonetheless, killing a specific type of people is considered under racism,in such acts. Society has molded a type of numbness to the idea of killing other human beings formorbid human satisfaction, or simply just to get to other things. Once society has molded overthese ideas of power, then the threat is gone.Although you can’t completely filter out people into thinking one specific way, there is acorrelation to how people treat others just by viewing others treat a human in such ways. Duringthe time for the civil rights movements, many white Americans openly detested against the“unneeded changes,” and many African Americans got killed for expressing their free rights thatthey deserved. There are many other examples to make, but in unison, Racism is the murderingof a type of people to appease another. When this construct of a superhero act is gone, thethreat will be completely excavated from Earth, and human beings alike.
