Pride and Discrimination
The result of unjust actions and intolerance
Horace Pippin, 1943.

A couple who lived in the Budapest Ghetto, 1944.
A sign forbidding service to an opposite race.
When you're in a desperate need gender, race, and age don't matter.
A meaningful ad that shares the effects of racism.
An anti-racism ad.
"Stop using 'People Are Over- Sensitive' To Excuse Racial Bias"
"So the next time you want to roll your eyes because you think someone is being overly-sensitive when discussing race-relations, perhaps take a moment to consider the possibility that you're just not being sensitive enough. " Toria Sheffield, The Huffington Post.
We do more
Still not satisfied you hate us
You see our outside
And expect the same to live within
I'm not just a color
I'm a person
I have a heart that beats
Lungs that breathe
I'm just like you
But you're too blind to see
The root of your stupidity
Intolerant of different
Afraid of different
Seems like you're the one with the problem" Written by Freeflow23
Blackbird by The Beatles
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.
