Finally! Proof that racism has ended…

Kudos for shutting down the fraternity right away, but let’s not pretend that this is an isolated incident. These young men felt very comfortable chanting those hate-filled words. These are the so-called “future leaders of America,” and they are the types that end up in positions where they can directly impact the lives of minorities.

Racism did not die after the Civil Rights Movement. It is almost amusing that there are people out there who believe that tall tale. It would be amusing if this belief did not have such devastating consequences. But, it does. You cannot get rid of racism but simply pretending it does not exist. And, truthfully, there will always be people who have malice in their hearts and view people, who are not like them, as inferior, but at least acknowledging reality gives us  fighting chance.
