Painfully true. We must do something with this awareness. Being ignorant to what is really going on will only pave the way for future injustice and oppression. I went to a panel discussion a few weeks ago and someone commented that he is simply a symptom of a bigger problem. There are many who think like this and will act on that mentality, whether they have political power or not. Racism, discrimination and other prejudice are widespread and looming in every corner of our society. Thank you for writing this extremely relevant piece!
