Sarah

A 17 year old girl, Sarah, who was born and raised in Australia, and is bullied because of her race. She is a Filipino girl who wishes she was white. She hates being bullied because of how she looks. She wants to hide the fact that she is infact Filipino and not white. Her classmates tell her to "Go Home". " I don't get it. I am home. Australia is where I was born and I don't know any other life. When they say that, it makes me feel like I don't belong anywhere." - Sarah


Freedom Fighters

Racism existed since the beginning of time. Colored people were treated like nothing before any of these inspirational figures stood up (Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, etc).

Being divided because of colors also counts as racism, just not as serious or important.
