Reassessing Racism


Racism Is a tool of divide and conquer where each side can be controlled by directing their energies against the other.

We know the story. In the United States, the so-called “leader of the free world”, there are many people still trying to convince the government, the world and maybe even each other that their lives should matter.

There’s a way we should be living our lives. Everybody knows that. The thing is this: there’s this rope on your neck being pulled on the other side.
