Our Petition is doing Great, but not our Blogs!

My classmates and I are always creating new blog pots for our audience on our topic and how you can help support us. However, not that many people see our blog posts. We haven’t had any views since February, which is disappointing because we want for our message to be heard here on word-press.

We also have a twitter account that is also not doing great. Every blog that we write, we post on our twitter. Our twitter has 1 follower, which is one of our classmates. This means that nobody from our twitter account is seeing our blog posts. Please support us by following our twitter at

Ignoring Racism Won’t Make it Go Away

Racism cannot just disappear if you ignore it. Whether you like it or not, the only way to stop racism is to talk about it, and be more aware of how racism is affecting people.

“The only way to end racism is to stop talking about it.”

In case you didn’t already know, this quote is complete bullshit. Let me explain why:

Ignoring a problem is not the proper way to handle it. For example, if you find out that you have cancer, you don’t just wait for it to kill you.
