Racism. According to my history class, I used to believe it ended a long time ago, but it’s still going on. Everyday from walking down the street to watching the news. I am Chinese, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh. I always felt very proud of my mixed culture until I started middle school. In the sixth grade, my peers thought that I always did well in academics because I was Asian. For a while I started to believe that at one point even though I knew in my heart, it wasn’t true. I couldn’t relate to any other Asian girls because I was the only one at my school. I felt alone, but then I saw a Hispanic friend getting bullied because they thought she smoked weed. Then I realized that it wasn’t just my race, but all being stereotyped. We are all the human race even though we have different backgrounds, ages, genders, and sexual orientation. That’s why it’s important to stand up for who you are because you were born this way for a reason.
